Guests have included, NRBQ’s Big Al Anderson, Fountains of Wayne’s singer Chris Collingwood, Freedy Johnston, Pat Dinizio of The Smithereens, country star Gary Burr, Jon Pousette Dart, Mark Erelli, Rani Arbo, Roy Sludge with Duke Levine, and a host of others.

Special Monday Show!

Freedy Johnston

Monday, July 14th,

A gifted songwriter whose lyrics paint sometimes witty, often poignant portraits of characters often unaware of how their lives have gone wrong, Freedy Johnston seemingly appeared out of nowhere in the early '90s and quickly established himself as one of the most acclaimed new singer/songwriters of the day.

Where has Freedy Johnston been wandering? Some folks lost track of him after his 1994 hit “Bad Reputation” and his last Elektra album, 2001’s Right Between the Promises. He has moved around, living in NYC, Austin, Kansas, Madison and Nashville.


In the meantime it will be Freedy working his way, wandering the USA, promoting a little Rain on the City in a city near you.

Amy Lynn & The Gunshow

Saturday, July 19th,

Amy Lynn & The Gunshow is a seven-piece machine that blows glitter all over the traditional memphis-motown soul/rock style. At the controls is Amy Lynn, a vocal powerhouse whose unique flair of quirky, down-to-earth humor countervails against the serious musicianship of The Gunshow’s team of bari sax, tenor sax, trumpet, keys, bass, and drums. The Gunshow joined forces with multi-platinum-selling record producer, Steve Greenwell (of Joss Stone, Diane Birch,) to record their first full length album. For four days they recorded at The Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY run by Paul Antonell (Dr. John, Natalie Merchant, Joe Lovano). Just recently released, the album is already receiving glowing reviews from crictics and fans.

Consider The Source

Saturday, July 26th,

NYC trio Consider the Source defy easy description. Drawing from progressive rock, fusion and jazz, with alien sounds soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate parts into a striking, utterly original whole. Dubbed “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion”, the band’s music strikes a rare balance between cerebral and emotional, intellectual and primal. A relentless touring schedule has won the band a fervent following from California to Israel, with fans ranging from jam-band hippies and jazz cats to corpse-painted headbangers and prog geeks.

Consider the Source features Gabriel Marin on fretless double-neck guitar, bassist John Ferrara, and drummer/percussionist Jeff Mann.

Even when not improvising, Consider’s music is always a conversation, a roiling stew of dynamic interplay. Each member of Consider the Source alternately leads and follows, spars and assists; in any single song, alliances are made and broken, bargains struck and divorces finalized.

Friday, August 15th,

Joey Batts isn’t just a talented wordsmith and MC, he’s also one of the most interactive and funniest stage presences around.

Taking the live hip hop scene by storm, Joey Batts never takes “no” for an answer -you either love his sound right away, or his voice kidnaps you until you change your mind. A lyrical genius, and an amazing front man with impeccable crowd control, rolled into one – Joey Batts has proven to be an asset to CT’s growing underground hip-hop culture.

Charlie Allen

Friday, August 22nd,

Charlie Allen, an East Tennessee native, has taken the road less traveled on his way to the top. Allen's love of country music has inspired him to stage great concerts that excite crowds.

who has forged his own path into the world of country music.

A connection to listeners is Allen's trademark. His one of-a-kind voice communicates his distinctive view of the world, one that celebrates family, Christianity, blue collar pride, a strong belief in America and its
military, and a rocking sense of fun. It's the power of his talent and personality that leads to hosting shows like American Farmer. Hollywood stars and media figures have become his most vocal supporters, landing him
in the world's biggest festivals, from Bonnarro to the CMA Festival, to a variety of European showcases.
