Bruce Marshall

Bruce Marshall’s music career spans 6 decades and over 8 thousands shows including appearances with over 200 national acts.  Known equally well for his riveting band shows with the Bruce Marshall Group and his soulful, heart felt solo performances, he’s also half of the Montgomery and Marshall acoustic duo with bluesman James Montgomery. A tireless performer armed with great originals, an expressive, soulful voice and a commanding guitar style, both on electric, acoustic and steel dobro, he’s earned a reputation as one of New England’s best. - brucemarshall.net

Mychael David

In addition to being nominated  for the New Music Weekly 2011 Male Vocalist of the Year, Mychael has had multiple nominations as the Massachusetts Country Music Awards for Guitar Player of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year along with Entertainer of the Year and Band of the Year.

Mychael has had the pleasure of working with some of Nashvilles' most talented musicians. He continues to strive and perfect his music.

Straight from the heart, hard rockin' country music, is what Mychael is all about. - mychaeldavidmusic.com

Dwayne Haggins Band

Dwayne's style is rooted from old time country blues, and soul. Dwayne has begun leaving his mark on the small restaurants and bars that are spread throughout central Massachusetts in hopes to eventually move on to larger venues.

Dwayne and his backing band of Baxter Hall, Will Woyda, and Brad 'Jahnu' Larkin are making their B&BF debut and are looking forward to connecting with a wider audience to share their passion for music.
