July 24 - Billy Lurken, Singer/Songwriter and Multi-Instrumentalist from Mitchell, SD. Billy has spent time in both Nashville and Europe performing music and working in radio and currently writes and performs solo across the region.

July 31 - The Gentleman’s Anti-Temperance League, Old-Time Hot Jazz & Swing. A swing quintet from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The GATL came together in the winter of 2014 to breathe new life into old music. A melting pot of hot jazz, swing, and Latin rhythms, brought to a boil by soaring vocals and endless energy. GATL’s second full-length album is a masterful mix of old-time hot jazz and Latin rhythms, held together by modern songwriting and layered stories.

August 7 - Hank Harris, Musically Diverse Singer-Songwriter. When it comes to musical diversity, Hank Harris has cornered the market. In a market that has so many competing for the same thing, so few are successfully able to offer something new and different. This man accepts the challenge and overcomes the obstacles, side stepping the stereotypes that prevail in his chosen endeavor to construct a musical landscape of his very own. Many artists are content to sound like someone else instead of who they are, not Harris. You can hear who Hank is in his music.

August 14 - Sioux Falls Chamber Collective, Classical. Sioux Falls Chamber Music Collective is a platform to promote all types of chamber/small ensemble music in Sioux Falls! We will surprise you with different types of fun pieces introduced by an eclectic group of fun musicians as well. We support and promote all types of small ensemble concert projects with a variety of musical styles, classical, early music, Jazz, contemporary, pop…etc.

August 21 - Patchouli, Blend of Folk, Pop, Flamenco, and Jazz. Nationally touring, award winning songwriter Julie Patchouli and master guitarist Bruce Hecksel light up the air with sparkling acoustic sounds and their powerful contagious chemistry. Famous for that smiling voice that instantly turns a bad day into a good one, Patchouli’s down-to-earth, hopeful songwriting is “New American Folk” blending elements of folk, pop, flamenco and jazz with world beat rhythms. Patchouli’s sound has been described as “the harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel meet the guitar brilliance of the Gipsy Kings.

August 28 - JAS Quintet Jazz. One of South Dakota’s premier jazz ensembles. Formed in 2012 and based in Sioux Falls the ensemble continues to perform concert and festival dates throughout the region. JAS features the classic jazz quintet instrumentation of trumpet, saxophone, piano, bass and drums. Their repertoire is a diverse mix of old and new, featuring many original arrangements by members of the band. Concerts include favorites from Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Clifford Brown, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, and contemporary artists. You are sure to hear many familiar tunes during a JAS concert along with a few new jazz classics. The members of the JAS Quintet are recognized as some of the finest jazz musicians and educators in the region. Touring extensively throughout South Dakota, JAS Quintet has established a reputation as one of the top jazz ensembles in the region.
JAS Quintet features Jimmy Speirs (trumpet), Joel Shotwell (saxophone), Jeff Paul (piano), Andrew Reinartz (bass), and Daniel Heier (drums).
