CRAIC

The American-Irish Punk Band “CRAIC,” named for the Gaelic term meaning interesting banter & good company including music & good drink, takes traditional Irish music and turns it into an energy driven, fist pumping, “in your face” good time. CRAIC is full of a wide diversity of influence which makes the talent of the band stand out, from the beautiful sounds of the tin whistle, to the plucky hollow, bright, incisive clarity of the banjo, to the rich deep sound of the acoustic guitar, all backed up by drums, bass and the distortion of the electric guitar. Topped off with the wailing voices of all, you’ll surely enjoy the full-body sound of CRAIC.

WYATT COIN

Hailing from several rural suburbs outside of Rochester, Wyatt Coin consists of Jordan Schilling (vocals), Lael Dylag (drums), Dewey Richbar (guitar), and Taylor Lamitina (bass).

Wyatt Coin has released an EP and single that was featured in the indie horror film "Back Road." Their single 'Lights Out! Kill the Noise!" was featured in the VR video game "Astro Karts." In 2017 and 2018, the band was invited to play the Vans Warped Tour.
In 2018, Wyatt Coin entered the studio and recorded their debut full length album "The Big Sound" under producer and engineer, Jamie McMann. The Big Sound will release in 2019.

LORD NELSON

“A rootsy quintet belting out their vivacious sounds from Charlottesville, VA, Lord Nelson has the crunch of classic rock with a trombone smoothly spread across their melodies. The band has fantastic stage presence and lead vocalist Kai Crowe-Getty’s voice distills the soul of Tom Petty with the charisma of Marcus Mumford. With lyrics heavily influenced by their Appalachian origins and harmonious band chemistry, their shows certainly aren’t worth missing.”

Award winning, internationally touring acoustic honky-Tonk Americana duo our of Atlanta Ga.

The Waymores

You’ve heard Outlaws, you’ve heard Damsels, and you’ve heard Rockabilly’s… but you haven’t heard anything like The Waymores yet.
Comprised of Kira Annalise and Willie Heath Neal, The Waymores are the epitome of Acoustic Country Music: He was born in a cop car, lived in and out of foster care, and served in the Navy. She used to get stage fright until she was swept up by his charm and grit, started singing country songs, and never looked back. Now they’re writing songs from the road and bringing their intimate, fun, and quirky one-liner-jabs to venues across the country. The Waymores take what’s real about life and relationships and add music, jokes, and whiskey; it can be beautiful, it can be painful, it can get inappropriate, and it’s completely unrehearsed, unexpected, and dangerously wonderful. Their debut album, Weeds, is scheduled to be released in early 2019 on Chicken Ranch Records out of Austin, TX.

2020 INTERNATIONAL BLUES CHALLENGE WINNER!

Héctor Anchondo Band

Representing the Blues Society of Omaha, Hector Anchondo competed against over 200 acts at the 35th Annual International Blues Challenge (IBC) and won first place for his Solo/Duo performance. He also garnered the Memphis Cigar Box Guitar Award for Best Acoustic Solo/Duo Guitarist.
“I’m so honored by these awards,” Anchondo said. “I love what I do, music in my passion and not very many people get this recognition. It’s truly an honor and I’m just so happy right now, overwhelmed with pride and thanks to all my fans and the people that support my music.”
Growing up on a Missouri farm, Anchondo soaked up Roots music, Latino music, bluegrass and old blues. He picked up the guitar as teen, and as soon as he finished high school, he headed for Omaha, to make a life playing guitar. When the recession of 2008 happened, work dried up in the music scene, and the stress took its toll. Anchondo found himself without a band, working as a dishwasher in a Cuban restaurant.
When you put your mind to doing the thing you were born to do, the universe helps. Anchondo got an unexpected call from an old friend in St. Louis. He’d been a fan of Anchondo’s Latin music, but he had always loved those blues songs Anchondo snuck in even more.
Anchondo wrote 30 songs that summer, narrowed it to five, and put out an EP called Kicking Up Dust. The album did well; he did Young Guns two years later. The band started sharing stages with the biggest names in blues, including Coco Montoya, Magic Slim and the Royal Southern Brotherhood. His most recent CD, Roll the Dice, is saturated with his history of blues, with flavors of Latin, rockabilly and Americana. It showcases the flawless, fluid and brilliant style that he earned in 20 years of love and discipline. The album leaped to the top of blues charts, including the top 25 on the Living Blues chart, and had spent many weeks on the Roots Music Report blues and blues rock charts.
Anchondo’s previous appearances at the IBC included a prestigious finalist performance in the band category (among the top eight vote-getters performing in the IBC finals in 2016). The Hector Anchondo Band also made it to the semifinals in 2015. The International Blues Challenge finals are judged by a panel of blues industry professionals according to criteria established by The Blues Foundation.

Rock’n’Roll Family Band

THE WILD ORCHIDS

from Switzerland

The Wild Orchids are a Rockabilly/Rock'n'Roll Band from Bienne, Switzerland with it's roots from the Rockabilly Revival movement in Europe that took place in the 1970's and 1980's. Formed in 1989 after Didier Tarquini (Front man for the band) returned from service in the army. The original lineup for the Wild Orchids was Tony (electric Bass), Pat (drums) and Didier Tarquini (Guitar/vocal). The original trio added Didier's wife, Iris Tarquini a few months later on Rhythm guitar and vocals. In 1991, The Wild Orchids released an EP 45 in Europe. Coincidentally, that was the last year for mass production of vinyl recordings in Europe. They pressed only 1000 copies which makes them a collectors item today among Rockabilly Revival enthusiasts. Last performance for this lineup of the Wild Orchids was in 2000 at the 'Salle Royale' in Tavannes, Switzerland. In 2007, Maurine (Didier and Iris' oldest daughter), only 12 years old at the time, received an Electric Bass for her birthday. She learned how to play it quickly and asked her parents about putting the Wild Orchids' band back together. In 2008, Morgane, Maurine's young sister, asked for a drum set for Christmas. In 2009, The Wild Orchids began touring again with Didier on lead guitar/vocals, Iris on Rhythm guitar/vocals along with their daughters Maurine on bass and Morgane on Drums. In 2011 they appeared on a local Swiss TV show called 'Mon village a du talent'. Which means in English "There is Talent in my Village". Since 2009, they have toured all over Europe and toured the United States in the summer of 2016. While on tour in the US last summer, the Wild Orchids recorded(in Louisianna) and released (in Switzerland)another EP 45 Vinyl of all original Rockabilly material. Today, the band consists of the same lineup as of 2009 with the addition of Didier and Iris' youngest daughter Moustique (Margot)on maracas. The Wild Orchids are planning another tour of the US for the summer of 2020.

THE MUCKERS

Folk, Rock, Punk, Irish, Gypsy from Atlanta

“This band is set for the top table of celtic-punk embracing everything that’s great about celtic-punk. Passion and pride in the land of their ancestors but also a willingness to experiment a bit and step away from the confines of Irish folk and inject other cultures and music into what they do. And all the time with a smile plastered across their faces. The obvious fun they have is infectious and if the only thing Celtic-Punk achieves is to make people happy then The Muckers have got a surefire hit on their hands. Get on board before they become massive!”

Winners of 2019 Independent Blues Award for “Best Blues-Soul Band,”

THE LUCKY LOSERS

The Lucky Losers are a five-piece band from San Francisco lead by veteran blues singer, Cathy Lemons, and harmonica master and vocalist, Phil Berkowitz. Their music is a throwback to the hybrid of soul, blues, rock, gospel, and country that emerged in the late 1960’s — combining gorgeous harmonies reminiscent of the great male/ female vocal duos of that era. Together they bring a full range of talent to their performances as accomplished singers, songwriters, and show producers. They have performed at major venues and festivals across the country and have played in some of the most prestigious clubs in The Bay Area/ San Francisco. In a span of four years they have released three chart topping albums. Their first album, "A Winning Hand," was nominated for "Best Traditional Blues Album" by Blues 411 and made The Roots Music Report’s "Top Albums of 2015". Their second album, "In Any Town," was nominated for a total SEVEN awards. Clearly on a winning streak, The Lucky Losers released an all original album, “Blind Spot,” in 2018 which made several notable year-end lists including Downbeat, Making a Scene (listed at #1), and The Roots Music Report’s “Top Blues Albums for the Year of 2018” (#28). The Lucky Losers were nominated for FIVE Independent Blues Awards in 2019:

Me and my husband have been to Wilbert's several times and I must say I really enjoy it. I love the menu selection. Particularly the salad selection. The selection of beer is nice too. One of the best places to go after the game! You should totally check out the band Master T.C. and The Visitors. They would fit really well with the hip atmosphere. They are one of the best local bands we have seen around. If you have a large party, Wilbert's is perfect for the whole family! Looking forward to returning to see Mike Edel!

We've been to Wilbert's Food and Music several times now and each time We've had a blast. The drinks are reasonably priced and it's a very cool place to hang with your friends. The staff is very friendly as well! My girlfriends and I really enjoy hearing local music and This is also great place to do so. It's great to have another place supporting local musicians. You should look into getting Master t.c.& The Visitors to play. They are a local band we see a lot they are amazing...

Great food and spirits. Music scene is awesome..

Had a great time! Food was good! Waitress was great! Loved the owner!

Wilberts is an amazing' joint...killer food, wit a 'lil pop to it....warm up your belly......owner, Mike Miller, has been bringing the best in live music to Cleveland for decades.....the staff is pro....great joint

One of the coolest restaurant bars in Cleveland. The food is great, the music is great any night, and the owner is great. Don't listen to some person who tried to get free food, then B****es when he gets caught. Been there 20 times, never had a bad time. Almost never a cover charge, and you can order anything on the menu and it's really really good. Norman Nardini!!!
