    Nik & Rik

    Nik & Rik, acoustic duo is comprised of Nikki D. and Rick Clay. Nikki D. is going back to her roots of soft rock, folk, and standards, and Rick Clay is demonstrating his skill in the acoustic guitar, and revisiting his ‘softer’ side as well.

    Their song selection is varied. They have redone some of the 80’s KantiRocks cover songs so that fans can appreciate some of those same songs acoustically, but have also integrated a wider style including alternative, folk, standards, 70’s, southern rock and current pop songs from artists such as Katy Perry and Pink. There is something for everyone with this duo.

    And as always, Nik & Rik offer animated performances and humorous interaction. Come relax, laugh, take a trip down memory lane or be moved to tears with Nik & Rik, acoustic duo. We offer something more.

    Lojo Russo

    Whether playing festivals or front steps, coffee houses or concert halls Lojo Russo connects with her audience in a way few performers can. Her enormous stage energy, powerful voice and percussive playing style belie her small frame. This little woman puts on one heckuva big show.

    Making music along the muddy waters from Minneapolis to Davenport for over 15 years Russo's played in jam bands, Celtic groups, freestyle funk folk and currently as a solo touring artist. And like the river she moves the music from one genre to the next - powerfully ... effortlessly.

    Russo’s style of music has always been a little bit of everything because she’s always played a little bit of everything - bass in a psychedelic rock , mandolin in a Celtic group and guitar in every kind of funk, folk, jazz and jam combination you can imagine - usually taking the lead. This variety of music and performance styles allows Russo to tailor her shows to her audience without compromising her music. Russo’s not-so-traditional blend of roots, blues and Americana gives her music an old-timey feel with a contemporary perspective.

    Lojo Russo is the kind of artist who is also an entertainer. She doesn’t just play at her audience - she plays with her audience. Her boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm for her music is apparent to anyone listening and everyone watching!

    Brook Hoover's Rockabilly Throwdown

    Hi this is Brook, I've been performing, recording, practicing and teaching about every darn day since 1974 and I love it! I play in The Flamin Camaros, The Surf Zombies, IMPACT and sit in with a few bands now and then. I also run a studio and teach guitar. I put together a one man act in 2012 and have been really busy playing a ton of shows ever since. I use some great drummers to lay down basic tracks with me in the studio then add bass, acoustic guitar and few electrics, baritone, slide etc. Then I add some back up vocals and mix it down and use this as my band when I perform! It's kinda cheating, but who cares? Actually I care a lot! About every song, every note, every guitar part and I work hard to bring a fun show to the people.
