Red Hot Juba

Red Hot Juba plays Blisterin' Hot Countrified Jazz and Green Mountain Swing. Using a shifting and impulsive mix of styles while carving out an approach all their own, Red Hot Juba can turn from dynamic jump-blues to bittersweet soul on a dime.

Starline Rhythm Boys

Danny Coane, the rockin' pride of Vermont, just keeps rollin'. He has fronted bluegrass, country, and blues bands, but the rockabilly, rock ‘n’ roll act "The Throbulators" gained him national exposure. Billy Bratcher holds down the beat for the trio on upright bass. He toured with Texas Juke Joint King Wayne Hancock and became well known throughout the U.S. for mastering the unique "slap bass" style. Al Lemery shines bright under any stage light.
