Blaze & Kelly: 6pm - 9pm

To listen to Blaze and Kelly is to experience a musical nirvana. Their art takes the listener beyond the realm of the temporal, and into those intangible places we call spirit, dreams, and love. There’s no doubt these two laughter-loving women can sing—Niccole’s powerful lead vocals blend perfectly with Mo’s sweet tone. But what makes them true artists is their ability to create emotion. To Blaze and Kelly, it’s not money, fame, or precision that creates happiness, but genuine human connection. And their songs illustrate the humanity, passion, and truth each one of us strives to feel and find gladness.

Paul’s can.” His talents are demonstrated on vocals, guitar, bass, keyboard, mandolin and accordion both in live performances and on his albums ‘Goodbye, Waterloo…‘(2011) and ‘House On Fire ‘(2009), and his EPs “Yours, Etc…’ (2004) and ‘Interference’ (2015).

Emily Stanton Band: 6pm-9pm

Wait to you hear this girl’s voice.” This seems to be the common mantra heard after seeing this show and club owners agree. Emily is now filling a niche in the Boise music scene which has had a long-standing gap in the soul/r&b genres. Backed by a band of some of the finest musicians in the Northwest, this is a show you’ll want to experience! Emily Stanton is an American soul/R&B vocalist, composer, lyricist and performer. Born in Boise, Idaho, she first became interested in music at an early age singing/playing the violin at age 6. Growing up, Stanton sang in choirs and played multiple instruments. She started The Emily Stanton Band (which has taken off so quickly it’s obvious to everyone that hears her voice that this is her true calling). “I’m so grateful to be pursuing my dream of writing, recording and sharing the stage with such an amazing band, I’m really looking forward to creating more funky, soulful tunes for the future.”

Jack Loyd Gish: 11am - 1pm

The love of music for singer/songwriter Brook Faulk comes from the same motto that makes most businesses successful...location, location, location. Raised on a cattle ranch under the Western sky, Brook comes from a long line of real cowboys and rodeo men. She grew up listening to all the old country favorites with her dad, while driving down the long dusty roads. It was there that Brook developed her love affair with music. A throwback from the past, she began singing at a young age, quickly finding her way into the rural music scene of country fairs, coffee houses, and local honkytonks.

Swingin' with Ellie: 6pm - 9pm 

Swingin’ with Ellie Shaw is a duo that brings to life the swinging sounds of the 30’s and 40’s. The minute Ellie walks on the stage you know you are in for a treat. Her vintage wardrobe and respect for the genre become clear the moment she counts off her tunes. Her show includes standards from the jazz era that are given new life as Ellie swings them with her own interpretation. Always a crowd favorite, Ellie’s vintage vocals and scat have been influenced by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and countless other great voices from the era. Taking her cue from instrumentalists like Benny Goodman, Louis Armstrong and Lester Young, she brings jazz violin to a new height. Her soulful improvisation makes each live performance unforgettable. Rounding out their sound is Kiley Shaw on rhythm guitar.
