The Badlees


STAGE: The Badlees are a six piece rock band that have been creating and performing music since 1990. Pete Palladino (vocals), Bret Alexander (guitar), Paul Smith (bass) and Ron Simasek (drums) joined forces decades ago after a few happenstance introductions, that some would say, were driven by destiny. Dustin Drevitch (guitar) and Nyke Van Wyk (violin) joined the band in 2010. 

 In 2014, the feature film "Trust Me" will be released.  Trust Me is a romantic comedy about the manager of a fictitious rock band called The Damnsels.  The Badlees music was used as the music of the fictitious band and members of the badlees, drummer Ron Simasek and front man, Palladino, have roles in the film.

Armed with a new record, new tour and new film, The Badlees look to be around for a long time to come.

Danny Paisley and Southern Grass


Dan Paisley & The Southern Grass.

Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass play powerful, unadorned, and intense traditional bluegrass. There is no hybrid or genre-bending music here. Their combination of instrumentation and vocals convey the energy and emotion of classic bluegrass and country music. Danny’s lead vocals will captivate your senses, so much so that many prominent musicians, including Alison Krauss, have considered Danny as one of their favorite singers.   His voice combines powerful range and soulful blues with a sound like no one else in bluegrass today.
