The Truth After Party
10 pm 

Band Members: Charles Walker, Porsche Carmon, Dan Kennedy, Emmanuel Folkes
Deliciously Stanky.  Dynamically  Funky.  Recklessly Hopeful.  Grounded
in soul, the Charles Walker Band has been compared to Prince, Bruno Mars, The Brand New Heavys, and James Brown.  The Milwaukee based band has refined their sound into Neo-Funk, a fusion of funk infused rhythms with pop melodies.  The four-piece band rehearses tirelessly in Charles’ basement, amidst couches and low ceilings, Charles having to stoop the entire time.  The questions he always poses to the band are: How can this be tighter? How can this song look different? How can we get fans involved?  Fans love the band’s positive energy music and attend shows because they feel better than when they arrived.  The Charles Walker Band is Deliciously Stanky.  Dynamically Funky.  Recklessly Hopeful.

Rick Burke’s Travelling Music Show and Review

Friday, Sep 1
The Originals
6PM

Self described “Honky Tonk Lounge Lizard” Rick brings the heart and soul of rural South-Central Iowa to his performances. Songs about winning and losing and just getting through life are his stock and trade and honesty and heart are his currency. Schooled in rock, blues and country bands, but always returning to his acoustic, singer-song writer roots, Rick started a one man show in 2008 and never looked back. Rick states, “I love playing with bands, but there is something special about connecting with an audience with just a guitar, a voice, and a great song. Rick is a winner of the Iowa Music Project song writers competition with his bluegrass inspired, Lazarus, which appears on the compilation album with 24 other Iowa bands and writers.
