SALLIE FORD is the real deal. With a voice that can belt, soothe, caress, and flat-out spit sass, attitude, and raw street emotion, she sounds like some sort of dream cross between Ella Fitzgerald and Janis Joplin, and her band has evolved from the swing rock of the group’s debut full-length, 2011’s Dirty Radio, into a solid garage rock outfit that snarls, prowls, and shouts right along with her. Ford, who, on songs like the raging and rocking “They Told Me,” the stubborn and insistent “Party Kids,” the jazzy ballad “Shivers,” and “Devil,” which is full of bad-girl swagger and rockabilly strut, she shakes off her influences and becomes a force all on her own. She is a rare talent, a full-tilt arrival.

THE INDIGO BOYZ is a B-side cover and originals band playing bluesy-rock-folk and country-swing with a touch of alternative… resulting from one man’s musical vision combined with another man’s neurotic need to stay busy, then finessed by the talented work of others. The band’s style has quickly become a favorite of small cocktail venues, weddings, animal birthday parties, bat/bar mitzvahs and smoker’s lounges. With exception to the residents of a yellow jacket nest that found the keyboardist abrasive and confrontational, reviews have been quite positive.https://www.facebook.com/theindigoboyz

The core songwriter and creative center of The Weather Machine is SLATER SMITH. Garnering accolades for his music video project documenting his travel to every Oregon State Park, Slater’s songs carry an amazing message thats both playful and contemplative. Folk rock and indie influence are on the menu September 5th as Slater performs a very rare and special solo set for Salem!https://www.facebook.com/weathermachinemusic
