With his trademark stand-up style, Slim Jim Phantom helped launch the early 1980s neo-rockabilly movement as The Stray Cats’ drummer. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame includes their 1981 hit “Rock This Town” as one of the songs that shaped rock. In the years since, Phantom has played and collaborated with legendary artists from Jerry Lee Lewis to Lemmy Kilmister, climbed Mt. Everest and penned a well-received autobiography “A Stray Cat Struts: My Life as a Rockabilly Rebel.”

• Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen Official Site | Download Photo 
The country-rock pioneers were among the first to trade folk-rock and bluegrass influences for a rowdier barroom flavor. Known for marathon live shows and the 1971 Top 10 hit “Hot Rod Lincoln,” Commander Cody and his Airmen also lay claim to a spot on Rolling Stone Magazine’s top 100 albums of all time with Deep In The Heart Of Texas.

2016 MATERIALS

2016 MUSIC LINEUP BACKGROUND RESOURCES

DAR WILLIAMS
A singer-songwriter and major force out of the New England folk scene, Williams’s work is often compared to Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez but with a sharply witty twist. Williams draws rave reviews for her live performances, including appearances at the Newport Folk Festival and St. Louis’s Mississippi River Music Fest. She is also noted for an impressive roster of collaborators over the course of a career spanning decades. Her most recent release and ninth studio record, 2015’s Emerald, drew Jill Sobule, The Milk Carton Kids and Grammy-winning Americana legend, Jim Lauderdale among others.

SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS
Chapel Hill, NC trio Southern Culture On The Skids has been spreading the rock and roll gospel since 1983. Their greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B and country fried garage with a side of psych is a musical gumbo that vocalist and guitarist Rick Miller calls “Americana from the wrong side of the tracks.” For over 30 years, the band have toured everywhere including Mt. Fuji, Japan, delivering what Rolling Stone calls “a hell raising rock and roll party.”  — Official Site |Official Photo (7MB)| Bio

THE STICKERS
Western Pennsylvania-rooted brothers Jim, John and Joe Wodarek are up and coming country trio, The Stickers. The band has charted five songs in the US and four songs in Europe, including several top tens overseas. They have appeared in support of national artists including Zac Brown, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, and Hank Williams Jr.
The Stickers were featured at the CMA Festival in Nashvile TN and their current, rising single ‘Countrified’ has been featured on the hit ABC TV series, Nashville as well as during the NHL All Star Game and Daytona 500.

THE JAGGERZ
Pittsburgh blue-eyed soul legends, The Jaggerz enjoyed national success in the 1970s with  their gold-selling single “The Rapper” — which rose to Number 1 on the Record World Charts and Number 2 on the Billboard Top 200. Their rich vocals and soulful grooves have been sampled by Wiz Khalifa, The Game and other hip hop artists. While the original lineup parted ways in 1975, founding members Jimmie Ross and Benny Faiella continue to perform and produce albums with the latest incarnation of the band, and were recently inducted into the Pittsburgh Rock ’N Roll Legends Awards 2016 class.

RAY OWEN
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, Ray Owen “whips up a veritable feast of classic American songs and stirs in a healthy helping of humor” for audiences of all ages. A network television veteran, he has also performed with Garth Brooks, Arlo Guthrie and Bob Hope as well as having toured with Willie Nelson and America. The Gettysburg-based Owen, hailed by the Philadelphia Inquirer as “one of America’s premiere outdoor fair and festival performers,” has also been named a Pennsylvania Songwriter of the Year by the Pennsylvania Festivals Association.
