The Vegabonds
The Vegabonds
"The Vegabonds [January 2015 Relix Jam-off Winners] are five southern rockers based in Nashville, TNbringing their “New South Rock” to the forefront of the rock-and-roll and jam scene. With three albums already out in the musical world and a new record due [February 2016], their explosion is only a matter of time!” – Relix Magazine

After seven years of touring the world, a few original projects under their belt and an unwavering devotion to their craft, The Vegabonds have completed what might be considered their best work thus far. “What We’re Made Of” consists of hard-hitting lyrics that don’t hesitate to touch on real-life situations like growing up, moving on, heartbreak, loss and the struggles that accompany it all.

Well versed, two-time Grammy nominated producer and engineer, Tom Tapley (Destiny’s Child, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen), applied his soulful roots background and passion for rock ‘n’ roll to bring The Vegabonds’ vision to fruition. The combination of Tapley’s unmistakable chops, the analog console’s raw sound and the group’s impeccable instrumentation and vocals creates a genuine style that is exclusively their own. This 12-song journey is their fourth project as a group and the first release they have had since 2012. Over the past 3 years The Vegabonds have discovered what they’re made of and are eager to share their adventure and self-discovery with the masses.
Three Star Revival
Three Star Revival
Three Star Revival was founded by frontman Ben Gaines and lead guitarist Cameron Moore in 2015. Gaines' gifts as a vocalist and songwriter had already earned him a local following in Knoxville, but things really took off when he met his collaborative partner in Moore. Moore is a veritable guitar prodigy, and a Memphis native who was raised on classic Stax records, and the blues and jazz scene still vibrant in his hometown. After jamming for a few sessions on some more folky and country tunes, Gaines and Moore began to rapidly expand their musical horizons, going electric and incorporating sounds from across the Americana landscape and beyond with forays into funk, soul, r&b, and jazz. Initially playing with a rotating cast of Knoxville musicians, Gaines and Moore solidified their touring lineup with keys player Gregory Walton, bassist Tyler Reddick, and drummer Bo Kitzman. The quintet sprang forth from East Tennessee with an exhilarating live show that always keeps the listener engaged with meaningful lyrics, strong songwriting, and ridiculous improvisational jams from the talented 5 piece group. Three Star Revival is rapidly growing around Tennessee and the Southeast, with a heavy touring schedule and new music on the horizon, this group has only begun to plant its roots in the musical landscape.



“There’s a certain dreaminess woven throughout […] and when Gaines and his bandmates lock in on one another, the songs reach an anthemic crescendo with the urgency of a man driving hellbent for leather to get to his lover’s side before she boards the plane that will carry her across the country.” – Steve Wildsmith, The Daily Times

“Three Star Revival is serving up a big ol' helping of southern-fried funk. Their lineup is stacked with talent including one of the best lead guitarists in town in Cam Moore (that solo at about 3:49 is just perfect), keyboard extraordinaire Greg Walton, a baller rhythm section with Tyler Reddick and Bo Kitzman, and charismatic frontman Ben Gaines. This newest release is the closest that Three Star has come yet to bottling the energy of their live show into a studio recording.” - Kent Oglesby, Knoxville Music Warehouse
