This year’s outdoor music festival features Albert Castiglia with Special Guests Jake Kershaw, Jon Archambault Band, Hideous Business.

Albert Castiglia is a South Florida based blues rocker, whose electrifying performances have earned him a coast to coast following of blues, rock and soul music fans. His vocal style is often compared to that of Van Morrison. In May 2020, Albert won a Blues Music Award as “Blues Rock Album of the Year”, for his album “Masterpiece.” To date, he’s recorded 12 albums, including a newly released album titled “Wild & Free."

Jake Kershaw has accomplished more than some twice his age. He has had the privilege of playing with great performers such as Jonny Lang, Anthony Gomes, Larry McCray, Albert Cummings, Walter Trout, and has opened for Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Tommy Castro and the Painkillers, Bernard Allison, Marcus King, and Tab Benoit. Jake recorded and released his first album, “Piece of My Mind,” in the summer of 2017 when he was just 16 years old. Earlier that year he was honored with his first endorsement from Heritage Guitars as a Young Artist. He has since been endorsed by companies such as Lizard Spit, JobeTone pickups, Apex strings, and Medina Made straps.

The Jon Archambault Band is a "Michigan Blues Band That Rocks" and is inspired by all of the great performers who live in the moment. Audiences experience timeless classics along with fresh original music, including an infusion of blues rock, soul, Motown, funk, and swing.

Hideous Business is opening the show this year. The Indiana blues and rock cover band has spent the past eight years canvassing festivals and events across the Michiana region of Southern Michigan and Indiana.
