Bek and the Starlight Revue
Bek and the Starlight Revue
Bek started out singing and writing songs in a little Methodist Church in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. She has been performing and developing her songwriting skills for over 10 years with bands such as Second Street Revival and Kevin and Bek. Her honest songs about life, love, and heartache come from the real life experiences of a wife and mother who's faith is as strong as her swagger. Teamed with the Starlight Revue, Bek delivers a reverb drenched night of rock n roll you don't want to miss!
Ben Knight and The Welldiggers
Ben Knight and The Welldiggers
Ben Knight plays American music. Kentucky Country music. A noble homage to generations of toil and progress. He and his band the Welldiggers bring new and original tunes that catch your attention with equal parts nostalgia and intrigue.

“To me, it’s all about the live show. I think that’s what drew me to music in the first place — the electricity in the room at a really good live show,” Knight says. “While a live show is a place to showcase musicianship and performing, I think an album is the place to showcase songwriting — being able to appreciate the lyrical content, how the words are arranged, the cadence. The biggest thing for me, after it’s done, after I’ve written it, is whether or not I give a shit about the people I’m talking about in the song — whether they’re characters or whether they’re myself.”

These are the songs of blue-collar workers, hard-luck cases and folks for whom being called a ne'er-do-well would be a step up the social ladder. Everything that's neat and tidy here gets scuffed up; every sentimental note meets a conflicted lyric or dissonant chord; every soothsayer gets a busted lip.
