Whether he’s songwriting, singing, playing sax or guitar—Big Hands is a big talent. A former frontman for the Central-Coast-of-California-based, Big Daddy’s Rhythm & Blues Band, Colvin has played with or opened for a number of well-known artists including: Tom Scott, Jesse Colin Young, and Johnny Winter.

Aug. 15: Daring Greatly

Daring Greatly is fronted by a powerful, 3-part ‘blood harmony’ provided by father, Dail Croome and his 2 sons Patrick and Liam Croome. The combination of familiar voices, each with their own unique tone and character, create a magical vocal tapestry like no other! With controlled dynamics, perfectly inserted fills and emotional turns, rhythmic drummer Brayden Tario brings the bands rhythm section to life. Brandon Haddow hoists the electric lead guitar and rips out killer solos, and then casually steps back, to provide soulful fills and rhythm.

Aug. 22: The Whole Bolivian Army

Indie rock, alternative rock, modern rock. Influences include the Sundays, Veruca Salt, and Throwing Muses. TWBA’s sound is elastic and changes from album to album. TWBA was born in Edmonds, WA, spent its formative years in Seattle during the tail end of the grunge era, and now thrives in nearby Tacoma, the City of Destiny. Matt Kite (guitar), Mary Beth Kite (vocals), Gibson Kite (drums), Delia Gable (bass).
