Mae Simpson Music
The Mae Simpson band is pure energy and soul. The singer-songwriter Mae who hails from South Carolina, has a huge voice and stage presence. She has brought together a collective of seven musicians who each bring a unique flavor to this powerhouse group. Formed in the fall of 2017, Mae Simpson Band have built a broad collection of original music that refuses to fall neatly into a single genre. Blistering funk and dance music mixed with soul, blues, country, calypso, jazz, rock, and even a little hip hop — bringing the crowd to their feet every time.

New Primitives
A mixture of different genres, Reggae/Ska, R&B, Afro Cuban, World Music, deep Funk and American Rock and Roll. Sometimes all played at the same time. The band’s eclectic sound can be traced to the diversity seen in the band’s lineup.The band can easily be described as a “Great American Melting Pot” with members from across the country with a broad range of influences. You have the Southern California Pop and R&B of Stan Kipper, the Latin and world elements of Minnesota’s Chico Perez, and the New Orleans Funk and Soul influences come from Louisiana man Brian Powers.

Jeff Ray & Hurricane Harold
Stomp your feet and hang on to your washboards, Jeff Ray and Hurricane Harold are bringing their inspired, heart-pounding, sophisticated (acoustic) country blues to Under “The Canopy! Delta meets Dead with a little Zen thrown in”
