Greg Hall

“Probably the best guitar player in comedy. Or the best comedian in guitar-playing” ~ The Tennessean

Greg Hall, guitar in hand, delights audiences nationwide with his songwriting, and humorous observations of life in America. Based in Nashville, Greg headlines comedy clubs around the country. His entertainment career began in Texas as a singer/songwriter after winning a prestigious Kennedy Center award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Musical Composition’. The next decade took him on a musical journey through thirty states, and Europe. He released five CD’s along the way, and shared stages with Shelby Lynne, Vern Gosdin, Jerry Jeff Walker, Eric Johnson, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Keith Urban, Dan Seals, and others.

A near fatal car wreck took Greg out of the game for a while. Determined to get back on stage, he entered the realm of stand up comedy. Always a quick wit, he took his stage experience, songwriting chops and musicianship, and fast tracked into touring comedy clubs around the nation. Now, as a headliner, Greg spends at least twenty weeks a year performing in top comedy clubs.

Greg observes life’s mishaps with a twinkle in his eye, and hope. The result is an achingly fun, comedic musical journey sharing his hard-won, slightly skewed wisdom.

Daniel Lawrence Walker

Recording and touring artist, Daniel Lawrence Walker, channels roots and rhythms through a soulful voice and slide guitar ranging from bluesy swagger to subtle softness. His trademark half-slide Shubb Axys allows him to play bottleneck with a quick flick of the thumb and fingers. He keeps toes tapping during solo shows when looping his rhythm part live, and ripping the slide over the top. Walker grew up in Fort Worth, Texas and moved to Nashville in 2008.

Dennis Drummond

You have seen him on the current season of the “National Vocal Competition !” Now see him LIVE! #AdamLevine #BlakeShelton #MileyCyrus #JenniferHudson come join us.

Born and raised in a small steel town in Northeast Ohio, Dennis was drawn to the guitar at a very young age. Taking an early liking to the blues, Dennis was fronting his own blues group, playing 2-4 nights a week, by the age of 15.

After college in late 2012, he loaded up everything he had into a van and headed south to Nashville, TN. Initially coming to Nashville to focus more on studio/session work and hired-gun gigs, Dennis has played guitar for, toured, and recorded with numerous groups over the years. Currently, you can catch him at Jim Oliver’s Smoke House, Monteagle, TN, where he combines his love for blues and soul, performing his soulful originals and unique renditions of familiar tunes!

In 2009, he signed with Sea Gayle Music Publishing and has since had cuts with Brad Paisley, Tyler Farr, Florida Georgia Line, Dustin Lynch, Maddie & Tae, The Cadillac Three, Danielle Bradbery, and Randy Rogers Band. His credits also include the #1 hit “Lonely Tonight” by Blake Shelton featuring Ashley Monroe and other singles, “Getting Over You” (Jackie Lee), “Cold Beer With Your Name On It” (Josh Thompson) and “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely” (Sheryl Crow).

Brandon Green

Brandon Green is a dynamic singer/songwriter who has built up quite a following along the Gulf Coast. His shows are a must see for both locals and tourists looking for a great entertainer. A southern boy from Lucedale, Mississippi, Brandon has mixed his phenomenal pop vocal range with a down-home country flair, and found a winning combination.

He has already achieved some national notoriety by becoming the runner-up on Season 2 of CMT’s Can You Duet, and by being hand-picked by Keith Urban as the winner of Guitar Center’s “Your Next Record with Keith Urban”. Subsequently, he recorded songs with legendary producer Dann Huff, and secured an opening spot on Urban’s 2011 tour.

Jason Lee Wilson

Scots-Irish, German, Swiss, Italian, and Cherokee…no one is more American in spirit, word or pedigree. Jason is a balladeer from the Southern highlands of North America who sings what he knows; he has stayed true to his roots, and has penned many songs romanticizing the history and tradition of his own life.

He could be described as traditional country meets folklore meets high energy rockabilly.

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.
