April 9 – Michael Franti & Spearhead
Michael Franti combines his love of R&B, hip-hop, reggae and poetry into a unique blend of music that inspires both the soul and mind. Franti is a charismatic performer and lead vocalist who connects seamlessly with his audience during his live performances. His recent album, All People, Franti exudes a sun-drenched and upbeat vibe, especially in his new song, “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)” which sets the scene for his other whistle-along hits.

April 16 – Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real
The son of star crooner Wille Nelson first picked up a guitar at the age of 11 and practiced his craft by playing along to classic Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix songs. Now, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real electrify fans year-round with performances across the country. Their cowboy, beach-hippy vibe meshes with a gritty rock and roll feel that creates a high-energy and infectious live set. At the heart of Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real is their undying passion of Rock n Roll that speaks from the heart.

April 17 – Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
New Orleans native Trombone Shorty is the bandleader and frontman in the hard-edged funk band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. He began playing professionally at the age of five, and now Trombone Shorty and his band tour internationally with their unique style that employs rock dynamics, a hip-hop beat and improvisation in a jazz tradition.
