Kerry Kearney BandKerry Kearney (pronounced "Car-Nee"), a slide guitar master, plays and works his instrument to limits that amaze even the most seasoned musician or cultured music fan. The sounds Kerry creates from his vintage, stock and custom-made guitars are as unique as his song writing and original melodies. Kerry was voted "Best Guitarist of 1999" by the LI Voice and “Bluesman of the Year 2004” by the LI Blues Society. He is also the recipient of the prestigious Long Island Sound Award (L.I.S.A.) from the LI Music Hall of Fame and most recently, in 2013, he and his band mates were each inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame. He has toured nationally and internationally with the Allman Brothers Band and Dickey Betts, and has performed with such contemporaries as Sonny Landreth and Robert Randolf. Kerry and his band have shared the stage with the great BB King at the NYCB Westbury Theater and at the Paramount Theater in Huntington, NY, as well as Robert Cray with the Blind Boys of Alabama and The Blues Brothers starring Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi.

Dave Diamond BandWith a style all their own, the Dave Diamond Band isn’t a derivative of any single genre. Rather, the songs reveal a wide range of influences — from indie rock to late 60s/early 70s Laurel Canyon inflections, from funk to doses of Latin and afro pop. And it’s all delivered in a natural mix of comfortable jams set in complex musical terrains. So, whether you’re a seasoned music aficionado or a frequent festival goer, there’s something for everyone in the Dave Diamond Band!
