Ivan Sandomire - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Ivan Sandomire
Ivan Sandomire was born at home in Providence, R.I., and moved out to Washington state as a child, to a small town called Acme. The music he grew up around was of all kinds and varieties, with his folks' old 45 and 78 records playing Reggae, the Beatles, and Motown around the house. When he was 8, his family moved down to Seattle, and being around his grandfather and his aunt (both musicians) he was introduced to various classical and instrumental composers and styles. These good and gentle people helped instill a love and appreciation of music and are a large reason that Ivan later started playing music himself. 'If You Say So' is his first LP, and just like Ivan, it was born at home.

As a sports correspondent for a Seattle based day camps weekly rag, Ivan developed an interest in the creative processes. Starting with the particulars of an imaginary group of squirrels, he's ventured into the theater arts, music and decent handshakes have met him from time to time, which leads us to our motto here - mind yer own business, and people will think you're missing a couple of cards - best let the buyer beware - and so on and so on.
Sam Marine - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Sam Marine
I am a singer/songwriter based in Brooklyn, New York. I write straight forward, classic rock n' roll songs with country, blues, and folk elements. I am currently in the studio finishing a 10 song debut record.
Wally Nichols - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Wally Nichols
Wally Nichols first got into a band at Brown University where he was a student. He played bass because no one else would. He then toured around the country with his soft/ pop rock band and almost ran The Subdudes's tour bus off the road (by accident) with his tour bus. Not good. After 7 years of working for Atlantic Records (radio promotion), he moved to the country and now plays country leaning, pop rock. He is in pursuit of the perfect 4 minute story set to music!
Peculiar Gentlemen - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Peculiar Gentlemen
Peculiar Gentlemen, the unlikely duo of folk/rock guitarist "Sweet" Willy Jive and hip hop/dance influenced keyboardist E-Beats, have hit full stride with their sophomore album The Difference.
This time, backed by a full band and three flavorful vocalists, Peculiar Gentlemen have compiled what may very well be the ultimate road-trip soundtrack comprised entirely of original music. Tear into the open road with the raw New York rock anthem, "Nasty", before cruising through the enthusiastic sentiment of "Tape Machine" and coasting into the blues of love lost along the way in "Goodnight Kiss". Through clever lyrics, infectious rhythm, old-school soul and an extraordinary sense of humor, Peculiar Gentlemen move through genres with effortless ease..
Karyn Kuhl Band - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Karyn Kuhl Band
Karyn Kuhl is an artist who expresses and reins in emotional extremes with an ever present soulfulness. While seduced by ethereal melodies and hypnotic beats, KK's music continues to be energized by the raw power of 3 chords and held under the sway of the blues. Based in Hoboken, NJ and NYC, KK started out as the front person for post-punk Gut Bank and rock trio Sexpod.
