Aris Paul Band
11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
You’d be hard-pressed to find another band that embodies Pittsburgh Rock and Southside Blues like APB…Aris, Aaron, and Matt refer to what they do as “red-eyed, road rock” – a culmination of fierce guitar, moving bass lines, and remarkably technical drumming that evoke bands of yesteryear while throwing in some jam-ish nuances. Spanning funk to country, hard rock to blues, APB puts on a rock show that has opened them up to the national spotlight and allowed them to tour the country and work alongside the likes of the Way-Down Wanderers, Joanna Shaw Taylor, Eric Sommers, Joshua Davis, Ally Venable, Raelyn Nelson (Willie Nelson’s granddaughter), and many more.
1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Born and raised in Texas, country crooner and multi-instrumentalist Craig Wayne Boyd moved to Nashville with big dreams and a bellowing voice. He spent ten years working those late-night honky-tonks until fate stepped in and dealt him one heck of a hand. America fell in love with CWB on their living room couches as they eagerly watched him win season 7 of The Voice. Some of his most memorable moments on the show include his soulful rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Walk the Line”, his star studded performance of “Boots On” alongside Blake Shelton and the forever touching “Old Rugged Cross”. With the trophy now sitting on his mantle, Boyd is determined to bring to his #YALLER fans his most real, most raw, most country music yet. We are “One Line Away” from the music everyone has been waiting for.
