Music on the Mountain @ The Smoke House
Friday, July 1st ~ 6:30pm – 10:30pm

The Uprights

Sounds of rockabilly, roots-country, and a bucketful of blues, poured out of a trio of hollow body strings and trap-set. The name befits not only our sound stylings, but our moral and physical attributes as well!

Mabus Jackson lays the true bass path and harmonizes, Peter Keeble drives on the drums, and guitar man Willis hollers, wrings out blue notes, and tries to keep between the lines. Slung together by a common musical attitude, The Uprights might hold forth low, slow, and mournful, or raucous and funky. We carry on the long history of American and Southern musical blending, and innovating from the roots up.


Songwriters Round w/Randy Finchum & Friends

This is a special round with handpicked songwriters that Randy has picked to come play with him, and some of the folks he has been writing with.

Dave Pahanish, Sarah Buxton & Tom Bukovac

Dave Pahanish has managed to come virtually out of nowhere to become an increasingly in-demand writer for the top stars of country music.

After scoring cuts on Jimmy Wayne’s ” Do You Believe Me Now” album, Dave and his production co-writer Joe West scored the title track to Toby Keith’s American Ride album.

Many other artists are now clamoring for his songs including Tim McGraw and Keith Urban who recorded “Without You”.

Sarah Buxton

Sarah is an American country music singer. Buxton sang a duet with Dierks Bentley, titled “Sweet & Wild” and sang background vocals for Kenny Rogers and John Corbett.  “Love Is a Trip” was used by ABC to promote its Men in Trees drama series. Buxton’s song, “Stupid Boy” & “Put You in a Song” was covered by Keith Urban. Buxton also wrote Gary Allan’s 2013 single “Pieces” from his album Set You Free and The Band Perry’s “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely”. In 2014, she co-wrote “PrizeFighter” by Trisha Yearwood and Kelly Clarkson, and “Sun Daze” by Florida Georgia Line.

Buxton has co-written several songs that have appeared on the ABC hit TV show Nashville. Buxton and her co-writer, Kate York, received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.

Tom Bukovac

Tom Bukovac is an American session musician. Bukovac began playing guitar at age ten, and started playing his first shows at age thirteen. He grew up in Willowick, Ohio and moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1992, where he found work playing for Tanya Tucker, Lionel Cartwright and others. He also toured with Wynonna Judd, but by 1999, Bukovac decided to stop touring and play as a session musician.

He won the MusicRow Magazine Session Guitarist of the Year Award five years consecutively, and has earned a series of nominations from the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music (he won ACM Guitarist of the Year for 2008 and 2010).

Runaway Home

The band, Runaway Home, is a “homecoming” of sorts. It was founded by three powerhouse singers looking for a road back to the music they grew up on and loved!

Their sound is strong three part harmony over lyrics that matter, wrapped in an acoustic style reminiscent of ‘70’s era radio. You might call them Retro-Commercial-Americana.

Robert Burgeis

Robert Burgeis is one of Nashville’s few piano playing, guitar picking artists who is also a seasoned songwriter and producer. With his diverse talent and love for country music, he has been dubbed as ‘The Rednek RokStar’.

Just one easy glance and a quick listen to his unique music, and you’ll experience a sexy stage presence and a delivery of songs that are filled with emotion, substance, and the stuff that’ll make anyone’s feet move.

Burgeis’s smooth voice, peppered with just enough twang and partnered with his masterful yet edgy guitar playing and tantalizing ivory tinkling, is what makes this ‘country-rocker’ one of the finest entertainers of his day.
