Three For Silver Big Band
Three For Silver Big Band
If it's retro, no one has found the time period. If it's folk music, no one has found the country of origin. Three For Silver runs off the friction of opposing forces: thunderous bass and dreamy melody, baritone growl and smooth soprano, new music and timeworn style. The band has hit the road non-stop since their formation in 2013, playing over 200 shows a year, and have gained an international following with their unmistakable sound.
The Sam Chase
The Sam Chase
The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bedsheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much Whiskey. His is a show you'll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool. He began to write music at the age of 14. He still has every scrap of paper he scribbled his terrible lyrics on and on occasion can even recall the infantile melodies and riffs that accompanied them.

In 2012, the world was gifted the release of his long awaited first studio album, THE SAM CHASE WILL LEAD US TO VICTORY. Its aim is to blow your mind. Its goal is world peace, where everyone wins, where victory is a basic human right. If all goes according to plan, The Sam Chase will lead you there.

THE SAM CHASE has had the honor to share the stage with some incredible acts such as: k.d.lang and the Sis Boom Bang, Justin Townes Earle, Lucinda Williams, Poor Man's Whiskey, Herman Dune, The Brothers Comatose, and many more. He sees every stage, any raised surface, or any plot of land as a challenge to conquer it, and win the audience over. THE SAM CHASE is coming for the glory.
Austin Quattlebaum
Born and raised in Savannah, GA, Austin Quattlebaum's sound is tinged with southern low country marsh land blues. It wasn't until attending college in the hills and mountains of the southern Appalachians that traditional bluegrass and old time music began to push its way into his work.

Offering rowdy singer/songwriter type solo shows, he is sure to leave the crowd stomping for more. With a blend of gritty originals and tasteful covers, he weaves both 3 finger bluegrass banjo, clawhammer old time banjo and flat-picking guitar songs into his sets. Often switching between mandolin and dobro as well. Sung with a bit of gravel in his throat, his sultry tunes are sure to keep the crowd aroused.
