Seth Jame

We are excited to bring Texas born and bred singer songwriter, Seth James!! Also, you asked and we listened, this year we are bringing in much straight from Louisiana, so get those dancing shoes ready for Poisson Rouge! The sound of Poisson Rouge can be best described as a perfect blend of traditional Cajun/Creole fused with the unique, influential sound that each member brings to the ensemble. Kylie, lead songwriter, singer, and accordionist, has a passionate style of creating songs that will make the listener come back for more. Her lyrics are often written and sung in French to reflect and promote her family’s rich Louisiana culture.

Poisson Rogue

Isaac Sloane & The Sound Brigade is a 6 piece psychedelic jazz infused blues/rock n’ roll band out of Denton, Texas. Formed in October of 2021, the group has quickly become a local favorite in the scene with their unique blend of in-your-face, ground shaking rock n’ roll, and soulful blues with elements of virtuosic jazz. The band is comprised of Michael Peterson and Donicio Trujillo on saxophone, Bailey Anderson on violin, Jake Kerley on organ, Anthony Peterson on drums and his brother Michael (yes there are two!) on bass. Band leader and guitarist/vocalist Isaac Sloane rounds out the powerhouse group writing songs that call back to the days of Cream, Zeppelin, Mountain and Hendrix with a modern and unique twist to the classic hard hitting sound of the late 60s and early 70s.
