Nolan Neal

A TV singing sensation. You have seen him on TV on the “National Vocal Competition!” Now see him LIVE at The Smoke House!

Bigger than life, captivating energy and boundless talent are just a few ways you’ll hear people describe Nolan Neal. While many know Nolan as a contestant on the hit NBC series The Voice, the Nashville-based artist is an accomplished singer, songwriter, musician and producer who was literally born into music. The son of a professional drummer and a mother who made her living as a singer, Nolan’s career started by playing the clubs in and around Nashville and as a street performer playing for tips in his guitar case.

After a producer heard him play, Nolan headed west to a record deal with Hollywood Records in 2000. During the next few years Nolan was touring and writing with the bands Tonic, Saliva and Shine Down, among others. In 2006 he signed with Virgin Records and continued touring and writing. After his stint with Hinder in 2014 as the multi-Platinum group’s lead singer, Nolan decided to explore his music and passions as an independent artist and is preparing to release his third independent project.

Runaway Home

Full Band Experience – Raw Rhythm Guitar – Bluesy Mandolin – Mountain Fiddle – Fantastic Harmonies

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.

Incredible Guitarist – Fabulous Singer

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!

A Special Music & Comedy Event

Greg Hall

Best Comedian in the Guitar Genre – Best Guitarist in the Comedian Genre

“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.
