The Dan Varner Band

Through 550 live performances, Dan and his band have spent the past five years sharing his songs with new fans across the region. They can be found performing at local establishments in the Cincinnati area, including every Wednesday night at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill. Dan is one of the rare finds in the music industry where vocals, songwriting and stage presence come together to offer the “full package.” Combine that with a genuine love and appreciation of the country music tradition and you have a performer who can compete with Nashville’s finest.  Partnered with Nick Netherton and Brad Kelly on vocals, this is one band that commands the stage and draws huge crowds at shows.  Get your five gallon hat and cowboy boots on because you are in for a country music throw-down!


Haymarket Riot

The group is well-versed in the art of providing continuous live music for every type of event or private occasion, personalizing any affair with the songs that are meaningful to the people in attendance without “filling in” with pre-recorded material. Sharing the joy of real music takes any event to the highest level and that’s why Haymarket Riot continues to perform together with love.


Hickory Robot

Hickory Robot hail from the fertile acoustic soil of Cincinnati, Ohio. The original trio of guitarist Jim Pelz, mandolinist Scott Carnder, and fiddler Lauren Schloemer came together in 2008 and by 2010 had released an album of critically-praised originals entitled “Firefly”. In 2011 bassist Mike Georgin completed the quartet and a year of constant gigging resulted in a large regional following and a Cincinnati Entertainment Award nomination for Best Bluegrass Band.
