Inner City All Stars
The Inner City All-Stars call themselves a "funk/jam brass band," and that they certainly are - though, as you might expect from a Denton-based musical group whose members mostly hail from UNT music programs, categorization can be a pretty tall order.

Carolyn Wonderland
Electric Blues – A triple threat with her diverse songwriting, soulful vocals, and guitar goddess status — all featured on over twenty CDs, six of which are her releases — she has a pedigree in this business that's hard to match.
A bit of a renegade, she likes to incorporate elements of Blues, Country, Swing, Zydeco, Surf, Gospel, Soul, and some nights, maybe even a Cumbia into the musical mix. 
She has a new CD out now that Ray Benson produced, Guitar Player Magazine is running a feature on her in the June issue, and she is taping Austin City Limits on June 5. http://www.carolynwonderland.com/

Dale Watson
Dale Watson isn't one to uphold the music industry's status quo.
He's moving forward on his own terms and true to his own convictions.
Even with frequent proclamations declaring him one of country music's last authentic voices (like that in Crazy Again--a recent documentary on Watson's life--when a fan declares, "son, you play country like country was when country was country"), Watson is done with the "C" word and what it's come to represent in modern times.
So much so that he's created his own genre, simply called Ameripolitan."... Heir to Johnny Cash throne "the kind of stuff country music legends are made of..."- Austin Chronicle

 Marshall Ford Swing Band
A great group of friends from Austin Texas Who Love to play "good" Music.
Although they are mainly a swing band they are always writing new material, branching into different styles, and making fresh arrangements of old favorites http://www.myspace.com/mfsbmusic.

The free performances begin at 8 p.m. and in the event of rain, will be moved to the civic center.
The programs are scheduled for approximately one hour in length.
