RUN GMC - Fresh from a sold-out show at the Railway last month, Run GMC delivers a perfect blend of swinging high-energy roots country rock. A dynamic twangy combination of raw, bluesy vocals, rockin' guitars, solid drumming and sweet washboard playin' creates what Missouri Gun and Rifle expounge as, "Now that's music ya can hunt to!" Be sure to catch this smokin' roots act this special evening before they go on extended hiatus starting this January! http://myspace.com/rungmc

MATTHEW MEI (AKA The Preacher's Son & You Bright Minds) - Having traveled the world as the son of a preacher man, Matt's initial introduction to the world of music was his dads classical, old blues and folk records, but it was his struggles in life and his soulful growth that fueled his desire to write emotional and heartfelt music. Be sure to join Matt tonight to hear songs from his newest CD release, "Contribution to Sound", a solid rock/folk excursion with bluesy undertones, hip hop beats and a most welcome retreat from the current atmosphere of commercial and trite ready-made music. http://www.matthewmei.com

FOUNDATION shines live with extended jams, 4-part vocal harmonies, sweeping dynamics and tight rhythm. A powerful presence on stage, their funky, original, jazzy rythyms and fat bass hooks serve the groove and inspire audience participation. http://www.sonicbids.com/foundation

CHEEK - Hip hop meets funk-ravaged jazz with seductive guitar riffs, catchy hooks and flawless flow. Emily Roop's lyrical prowess and sultry vocal style combined with her well-rounded sense of cheek completes this dynamic band. http://myspace.com/cheekmusic

DAN MANGAN is an engaging performer who combines intelligent lyrics and addictive guitar melodies with passion and raw emotion. The graveled sweetness of his voice is immediately recognizable and endearing, superbly supported by a highly talented backing band. Dan's latest release "Postcards and Daydreaming" is a fluid piece of work with diverse yet complementary grooves, styles and tones. http://www.danmanganmusic.com
