Abby Mae and the Homeschool Boys
Hometown: Port Angeles, Washington
Genres: Folk, bluegrass, Americana
Abby Mae and the Homeschool Boys went from packed bars and auditoriums in Port Angeles to throngs at the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle and Wintergrass in Bellevue. Just like the lead singer’s voice, this band soared, high and fast and across the Northwest. They played their signature blend of frolicsome folk, bluegrass, traditionals and originals in parks, bars, theaters and festivals, little and large.
Hometown: Seattle, Washington
Genres: Blues, R&B, soul, funk, gospel
Voted Female Blues Performer of the Year (2020, 2021) by the Washington Blues Society (WBS)
Lady A has been a Pacific NW favorite for 20+ years in the business. Nationally and internationally celebrated, Lady A has a high energy show has been compared to the likes of "Tina Turner" and "Chaka Khan" and a smile that easily draws in the audience with her sultry-husky voice and contemporary blues-funk style. Like a good pot-a-gumbo, Lady A is best served HOT!
Snotty Nose Rez Kids (SNRK)
Hometown: Kitimaat Village, Haisla Nation
Genres: Hip hop, rap, trap
Warning: Explicit content, adult content
Hit: "Boujee Natives" music video has over three million views on YouTube
Yung Trybez and Young D naturally connected through their love of music, wrestling, and pop culture. Growing up on the ‘Rez’, close to a predominantly white town, both faced similar challenges, but ultimately found refuge in hip hop and inspiration in each other’s talent. SNRK was born in 2016, forged from a life-long friendship between the two emcees using music to create, connect with their culture and language, and as an outlet to express themselves. They have won several awards such as Best Rap Hip Hop Video at the Native American Music Awards (NAMMYs) and Best Hip Hop Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards (WCMAs). SNRK has gained notoriety for their energetic, inspiring, and thought-provoking performances.
The Daddies (AKA The Cherry Poppin Daddies)
Hometown: Eugene, Oregon
Genres: Swing, ska, ska punk, rock, jazz
Hit: "Zoot Suit Riot" released under their longer band name, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies
On top of being a show band nonpareil, The Daddies have an “oh by the way” double platinum ability to pen original material that, while influenced by a history of American popular music, is wholly modern lyrically, and itself stands up as classic. The 1997 release of "Zoot Suit Riot" set the bar for the neo-swing movement of the era in terms of originality, lyrical depth, and flat out musical sales.
