Freddy Jones Band - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Freddy Jones Band
The Freddy Jones Band are roots-rock specialists in the tradition of groups like the Eagles, The Band and The Allman Brothers. Their influences stretch across the archives of musical history. Their sound is a blend of blues, rock and folk music all-together.

Throughout the 90's, endless tours across the U.S. helped build a loyal fan base for The Freddy Jones Band. After playing a show with Widespread Panic at the Park West in Chicago, Illinois, Capricorn Records signed FJB their first recording deal. From 1993-1999, they had 5 major label releases including Waiting for the Night (1993), self-titled independent release The Freddy Jones Band (1993), North Avenue Wake Up Call (1995), Lucid (1997), and Mile High Live (1999). The band played nearly 200-250 shows annually for about 8 years.

FJB gained national notoriety with AAA Radio hits "In a Daydream" and "Take the Time". They shared the stage with great musicians like Widespread Panic, Phish, Sheryl Crow, Dave Matthews and Matchbox 20, to name a few. Their tour history reveals an extremely hard-working band who believed in their music and followed their dreams.

The group consists of Marty Lloyd (vocals and acoustic guitar), Jim Bonaccorsi (bass), Rob Bonaccorsi (guitar and vocals), Simon Horrocks (drums), and Wayne Healy (vocals and guitar).

After a 5-year hiatus, the original band reunited August 20, 2005 for the Riverview Music Festival in Chicago to a fantastic hometown crowd. The band is currently playing select dates throughout the country and enjoying every minute of being back in the limelight.
Chaz Mason - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Chaz Mason
Exposed to a plethora of musical experiences as a young child, Chaz made his singing debut at age two by singing duets with his mother (professional singer/songwriter Babbie Mason). Recording by age four, his career was off and running. And ever since then, the stage and the studio have been home for this dynamic young singer, songwriter, arranger, and producer.

At the age of six, Chaz began taking piano lessons which led to a deep appreciation for classical composers such as Beethoven and Chopin. This not only broadened his ability as a pianist, but also honed his skills in theory and eartraining. At the age of twelve, he started playing clarinet. Approaching high school he began arranging and composing for piano, chamber choir, and wind instruments. Now twenty-three, he has added the guitar the his list of musical accomplishments. If you ever see him perform, you will see a guitar strapped to his shoulder or his keyboard stretched out in front of him like a well-traveled road. "Really, my main goal is to play as many instruments as possible. I want to be left alone in the studio being able to produce live tracks with the least amount of instrumental help necessary." Above all, Chaz wants to bring music to the world that is totally clean. "I want to be the one artist that doesnt sing about sex or money or fame, and what not.

I want to be the artist that the whole family can listen to and enjoy. Whether you are ten years old or eighty years old, you will laugh, cry or just sit back and chill to my music." When it all comes down to it, Chaz is the total package: singer, songwriter, producer, and performer. To use one word, he is an artist. An artist that will make a difference. An artist that will leave a legacy. An artist that will take music to its next level. An artist that the world will embrace as one of their own.
