"Night Train is comprised of 4 veterans of the D/FW bar circuit and are certainly not strangers to many stages in the area, if any at all. With Larry Campion (vocals, guitar), Kit Harper (lead guitar), Robert Yahne (drums), and David Downum (bass, vocals) sharing the stage, there is a virtual guarantee that the night is gonna be a great one.
The level of talent and showmanship of Night Train is evident from the first note all the way through the end of the night, and many audiences have been witness to the party that is led by this powerful combination of performance, humor, and song selection. A good time is waiting to be had with every show!
Larry, Kit, & David being former bandmates in popular modern rock cover band Undercover just provides an instant chemistry. The addition of Robert on drums just rounds out this powerful roster with his natural and effortless style behind the kit. The combination of this solid rhythm section, blistering rock-n-roll leads, and vocal harmonies is always sure to get a room going. Come and see for yourself, you will never be disappointed!" - Night Train

"... They came out with a bang! in December 2011. In the beginning, From a rising Texas country band called Grayson county Line who had been on the scene for around 10 years and had created a good fan base but had fell apart due to personality conflicts. Graysons front man Shane Parker and loyal friend Peter Grothe and a very talented keyboard player and vocalist from LA California Lolesio Pua came together and decided to try a new project.
They wanted to stand away from the crowd and create a new style of music and the way people view bands and take it to a new level by playing any and everything they wanted.. This talented and impressive group of friends have created a new mix of diverse styles of music that combines Texas Country, Alternative Rock, Pop, Ska and Reggae to form what they like to call "Raska" Music, Guaranteed to get everyone jumping out of their seats dancing or even bobbin their heads and singing along, creating a sound leaving people wanting more! The Members of the Group are Shane Parker (Lead Vocals), Lolesio Pua (Keyboards and Vocals) and Peter Grothe (Bass Guitar)..." - Blue Twenty2s

Time was - and not so long ago-that country was strictly working man's music. Working women, too, of course-and we're talking hard work here. Knuckle-busting, foot flattening, slow-to-get-up, work that has ya leaving (and returning) home in the dark in a dinged-up pickup truck that's actually used to haul things. And then, figuring out which overdue bill gets paid next. Yep, time was it was working man's music - in Kevin Deal's case, it still is.
A pure, raw hillbilly tour of American music, original and otherwise. You ain't heard nothin' like it and never will again. Unless you come to another show. Which you should.
Tyler Rogers Band
ROCK N' ROLL, BLUES ROCK, RED DIRT, AMERICANA, TEXAS COUNTRY, POST-MODERN SOUTHERN ROCK call it what you want we just call it good music. The Tyler Rogers Band has been traversing the great state of Texas and surrounding areas for nearly 4 years now and have collected a legitimate fan base throughout the state during that time. With the release of their sophomore album "The Other Side" in the summer of 2014 and consequent releases of two singles to Texas radio ("Higher Than Willie" & "Find A Way") they garnered much love from the Texas airwaves and are looking forward to making a big splash with their third studio album set to be released sometime in 2016.
We decided to start a band just as a good excuse to invite our friends out and get wasted. We've been having a blast since and would not have it any other way.

"The Hanna Barbarians are a Rock and Roll band from Fort Worth, Texas. Their influences derive from certain classic rock idols with the tongue-punchyness of drunken partyboy fantasm. Combined with an explosion of wet-dream-like, passionately heated, love-me-down flavor, they will be taking over a town near you, fevered with the passion of a thousand wine-drunk virgin soccer moms trying to escape the daily grind of their mediocre existence."
Heroes of Rejection
"Heroes of Rejection is an up and coming band in the Dallas / Ft. Worth metroplex with a strong stage presence, good live sound, and a fun attitude.
Our music influences range based on each member of the band, but together they blend creating an energetic live sound. These influences include a wide range of artists from the classic rock bands of the 70ís and 80ís such as Ac/Dc and Aerosmith; to the alternative rock bands of the 90ís; and the current rock bands heard today on the radio such as Nickelback, Alice in Chains, and Metallica.
All of our influences are high energy songs that the crowd can identify with and enjoy.
