Turkeys - Drums and Percussion
Combining a surprising blend of truly original music and a uniquely
eclectic selection of covers, the Fried Turkeys will have you
dripping in greasy, hippy, roots-country music. Soulful pedal
steel, soaring vocal harmonies, a thumping rhythm section, dixieland
piano lines, and a wooden Americana sound will have you tapping
your feet and singing along. The grease is ready. Drop the bird.

cdh and The Porch Lizards - craig daniel hardin and the porch lizards - original
swampy americana music: craig daniel hardin lives on and cares for the farm
that has been in his family for generations. Delivering songs of his north
central Florida heritage, cdh adds a current yet rooted sound and conscience
with his singing and songwriting. He sings stories of the people who have
and still do live in the area like the cracker cowhunters in Sand and Swamp
and the trapper in Back Woods Man. His themes also reveal his love for the
earth and help to bring awareness to the importance of its protection in songs
like: Home of Sand, Paradise and California Creek. His original music could
be classified as an Americana mix of country, rock and blues. His sound has
been coined “Swamp Groove”.
While most of the original songs that craig performs come to him while working
on the restoration of the native flora and fauna of Florida, he also collaborates
with other songwriters to stretch his writing muscles.

June and The Mayhaws - Drums and Percussion
Mayhaws MySpace - Music
Sharla June & The Mayhaws play an eclectic mix of blues, folk, bluegrass
and rock and roll that makes Bessie Smith sound like Iggy Pop, and the Ramones
sound like Hank Williams. They innovate, but with a respect for tradition,
walking a line between the sunny sounds of old-time folk and bluegrass and
the gritty darkness of old blues and hardcore gospel and country songs.
The band has featured a number of journeyman players over time, constantly
evolving and exploring new musical terrain. Smoky-voiced lead singer Sharla
June has been a mainstay on the Tallahassee music scene since the punk-rock
1980’s, writing and performing in a dizzying number of genre-spanning
projects. Mandolinist Dave Leporati came to The Mayhaws via a traditional
bluegrass background and a nontraditional affection for rockabilly, honky-tonk,
and the edgier arts and literatures. Drummer Deb Berlinger has been banging
on things and syncopating the blues since childhood, and bassist Chelsea
Chason studied jazz performance and music therapy is now giving vent to
her long-standing desire to rock out.
Together they create soul-feeding music: smart, dynamic, sassy and telling
of the truth.
It’s the sound that wafts out of green-lit dashboards in big old
50s cars as they rocket through the soft, black summer night. It’s
an after-hours jam session in the kitchen of that juke joint off the highway,
the one your mama told you to stay out of.
But of course you don’t stay out. How could you? Not when the Mayhaws
are in town.
Cheap and Easy - Drums and Percussion
and Easy - FaceBook
and Easy is the natural collaborative outcome of guitar slinger/songwriter
Bodega Bob Homme and vocalist/bassist Sugar Harris. Homme & Harris are
both life long performers - most recently fronting the successful regional
acoustic trio, Trigger Happy.
The pair formed Cheap and Easy in 2009 to recapture the closeness of roots-level
variety entertainment that places the performers among the audience rather than
in front of them, that embraces the audience as participants in the performance
and not merely observers of it. The pair's renowned rhythmic sensitivity and
stage intimacy gives party and close performance venue attendees a treat seldom
encountered in the world of acoustic stage performance.
Cheap and Easy's repertoire of well-crafted original Rockabilly, Americana,
Blues, & Country music, blended with their love of performance, and the
nascent ability to observe and report the humorous foibles of the human condition
forms the foundation of the duet's original blue-collar entertainment.
Sugar's steamy alto voice, Jazz roots, and long term love affair with the
rumble and articulation of the lower register, coupled with Bodega's barroom-bass
vocals and raw, street level energy acquired in the rough and tumble watering
holes of seaport towns around the world are the ingredients that combine to
make Cheap and Easy one of the area's best bets for good-time entertainment!
