Jesus On The Mainline - (Set time: 8:50 PM)
Jesus On The Mainline
A fifteen piece rag-tag group of New York's finest young musicians, Jesus On The Mainline has played to capacity crowds since their inception in late 2013. Led by GRAMMY-nominated musician Andrew Neesley, their music is reminiscent of The Black Keys, Mumford and Sons, The Black Crowes, with a dash of Joe Cocker and Janis Joplin for good measure. Listen for their epic soul cover of Nirvana's "Lithium" and the striking original songs of Andrew Neesley and Tim Emmerick.
Wild Adriatic - (Set time: 7:45 PM)
Wild Adriatic
Rooted in the rowdy spirit of rock & roll, Wild Adriatic has built an international audience on a combination of groove, grit, and guitar-heavy swagger.

With the power trio's newest album, Feel, bandmates Travis Gray, Rich Derbyshire, and Mateo Vosganian update the sound of their influences -- from Seventies rock to Motown to soul -- for a contemporary audience, taking influence from the past but never losing sight of the present. They aren't revivalists; they're modern men, carrying the torch of melodic, riff-ready, high-energy rock into new territory.
Big Hands Rhythm & Blues Band - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Big Hands Rhythm & Blues Band
Big Hands Rhythm & Blues Band, out of New York City, combines the authenticity of Chess Records era artists like Howlin' Wolf and John Lee Hooker with the reckless abandon of groups like The Sonics and The MC5.

Formed by working and touring sidemen who have played with Sting, Elle King, Lesley Gore, Ingrid Michelson, and Sesame Street, Big Hands' debut album brings together both originals and lesser known songs from the Chess era that will move body and spirit to the blues.
