The 2018 lineup includes more favorites and new bands that cover a range of musical styles and genres including;
 
July 24             Vinyl Shockley - The musical vehicle for Ed Shockley's songwriting, Vinyl Shockley is a six piece band that plays original music inspired by the rhythm and blues of the 50's, 60's and 70's that came out of Memphis, Muscle Shoals and New Orleans, Ed Shockley was headed in that direction out of the 80's, even before the genre had th name "Americana". He had been writing songs that didn't fit into anything else anyone was doing at the time.  Vinyl Shockley music is a retro balancing act, writing fresh new songs and adding crisp, live-in-the-studio production to revisit the 60's and 70's.
