His latest album “Last Star”--his first collection of original material--has been getting notice around the country. “Eleven songwriting gems” says Mondophonic.com, but “his strongest asset is his voice”. “Authentic, unpretentious...funky, heartbreaking”, said Ellen Stanley, in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

    • Description
      The Smoking Flowers are a rock duo from Nashville, TN. Their style incorporates stylings from roots, alt-country, punk, and folk - bringing a punk attitude and energy to their highly infectious songs while creating a marriage of song and voice that is uniquely their own.  Husband and wife team Kim and Scott Collins are both vocalists and multi-instrumentalists.  Their sound encompasses a wide range; they have been described as everywhere from “beautifully ragged, sometimes haunting, many times beautifully goofy-grinned and/or playful, pleading, and pledging – but always beautiful.”

      Big George Jackson Blues Band - Free Music Wednesdays
    • Description
      Vocalist/harmonica player Big George Jackson is known as the “authentic big man of the blues”. He sings with a distinctive bass-rich voice, only a six-foot  six inch gentle giant could be blessed with. Add his fat harmonica playing, dead-on phrasing, commanding stage-presence and instant audience rapport and it’s easy to understand why the audience howls when he delivers his music.
