Foghat

Formed in 1971 when Lonesome Dave Peverett and Roger Earl left the British blues-rock band, Savoy Brown, Foghat has earned eight Gold records, one Platinum record and one Double-Platinum record.  And they continue to release new music every few years. They have never stopped touring and recording although there have been several ups and downs and changes over the years.  They sadly lost Lonesome Dave Peverett in 2000 and Rod Price in 2005, but Roger kept banging & kicking to keep Foghat’s musical legacy going.  The band is now comprised of Roger Earl (founding member), Craig MacGregor (joined band in 1976), Charlie Huhn (formerly of Ted Nugent), and Bryan Bassett (formerly of Wild Cherry).

Foghat's single "Slow Ride" peaked at number 20 on the U.S. music charts, while "Third Time Lucky" peaked at 23, "I just wanna' make love to you" at 33, and "Drivin' Wheel" reached 34.

STRANGELOVE
The Depeche Mode Experience

Strangelove

Depeche Mode makes most lists as one of the most known alt-rock bands from the 1980's and 90's (and even today!) Leaving no desire to disappoint their avid fan base, STRANGELOVE's theatrical stage production is unparalleled.

STRANGELOVE covers the span of Depeche Mode's illustrious career, singing to near pitch-perfect renditions of many of D.M.'s chart toppers.  Accuracy and authenticity is a hallmark of STRANGELOVE, and has been called by many publications and D.M. fans as "one of the best Depeche Mode tribute bands around." LA Weekly said "Their resemblance - both visually and sonically - to Depeche Mode is frightening."

Jonathan Tyler GrapeFest 2017

Jonathan Tyler started his career in 2007 in Dallas along with Brandon Pinckard, Nick Jay, and Jordan Cain to form "Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights".  The band gained immediate attention, signing to a label in 2008 after playing at Austin's "South by Southwest" festival, and then opened for acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, and AC/DC. The band has since played ACL, Bonnaroo Music Fest, Voodoo Fest, and Summerfest among many other major music festivals.

After another band disputed the name "Northern Lights", Jonathan Tyler and his crew dropped the second part of the name and now tour just as "Jonathan Tyler".

The band released a new album "Holy Smokes" in 2015 to critical acclaim.
