Free Stage Post #1

165119_origThe Podunk Poets

The Podunk Poets are a rowdy, duet-fronted band with a unique sound inspired by honkytonk and classic country.  They have been on the bill with the likes of Sturgill Simpson, Merle Haggard, and Tim McGraw at Stagecoach, Ink-N-Iron, and LA and San Diego Pride Festivals and have performed around the southwest at legendary venues such as Hotel Café, House of Blues, Grand Ole Echo, and Pappy & Harriet's.  Their new album, Studio Sessions, has just been released on iTunes and Amazon.

 

 

 

 

DiamondbackDiamondBack

Central Minnesota has been home to DiamondBack since it’s inception in 1998. The band plays a great mix of the newest country heard on country radio, and of course a few classics and a little bit of rock.

They are always learning new songs to keep their show fresh.
 

 

 

The Red Letter Band

The Red Letter Band is a chart-topping group of artists that enjoy entertaining audiences in an up-close, personal way.  They cover a variety of classic country hits and have prize giveaways for crowd participation.  In 2014, The Red Letter Band had a full summer of fairs, festivals and private events, along with being discovered on the Inspirational Country Music (ICM) charts out of Nashville.  Their debut single, “Bring Me” climbed to #2 in November 2014 after spending 3 month in the top 5 (link to video is on our site).  The Band’s second release, “All Abandoned” is at #2 in January 2015.  ICM has given rave reviews to The Red Letter Band and believes they are one of the top up and coming artists in the nation.
