|SATURDAY, MAY 25|
|Decadence, Atara, The Izm, Stillview|
"We are exactly what our music portrays. Real guys, that write real songs. The music is a Hard Rock sound, with a hint of grunge, and laced with a metal edge. We don't claim to be a part of any specific genre, just a Rock n Roll band with a mission. That mission is to write solid tunes that we love first, and that will be liked in return by the friends and fans that choose to listen."

Through the years the band has seen a couple members come and go, but are finally set to hit the ground stompin' with what they say is the final lineup. When Moore, Weekley, Manigo, Woolley, and Sellers leave the stage, you will find yourself singing their infectious songs to yourself days later."|

|SATURDAY, JUNE 1|
|Chris Compton & Ruby Brunettes, Tom Hall & The Plowboys, Black Iron Gathering, Dr Roundhouse|
|Chris Compton & The Ruby Brunettes|
"Local musician Chris Compton definitely ventures into far more enigmatic territory than your standard singer-songwriter act. The catch-all term for what he does is probably acoustic alt-rock, but bundling sounds and influences as diverse as Harry Nilsson, Stephen Malkmus and The Flaming Lips into that rather staid description is more than a little unfair. His writing is smart and elusive; as a multi-instrumentalist, Compton seems to constantly challenge and reinvent himself; and he has one of those truly unique voices that really doesn't quite sound like anyone else's." K. Petersen - Free Times

|Tom Hall & The Plowboys|
"The Plowboys like to cook, and stand, and pick. Hopped up moonshiners chasing wild pigs down a mountain."
"If William Shakespeare had been raised in a hillbilly trailer park and wrote operas, he might have dipped his quill-pen into the pastoral funk of the Carolinas and come up with: The Sharecropper's Daughter. The latest opus is Plowboys and Indians: Visions of Black Elk, a country rock opera inspired by Lakota medicine man Black Elk. Call us outlaw indian country."

|"The Black Iron Gathering is a "Party Grass" band. The unit consists of guitarist, kazoo player, and Mandolin player Billy Ray, guitarist Charles Funk, banjo player Charlie McClinden, upright bassist and vocalist Bill Stevens, and drum and percussionist Justin Sims. The Black Iron Gathering writes high energy blue grass style power anthems, catchy ballads, and thick instrumental grooves that pulse for live show dancing and contagious sing-along. TBIG is set to release and album in Spring/Summer 2011 and begin festival and venue dates to support the recordings."|

|"Dr. Roundhouse started as an acoustic duo, DNR, that rocked the Columbia music scene. They rocked it hard. Frontmen, Jon and Russell, perfected their original compositions in this early carnation of the band. The duo added Nate Poston to the mix, bringing what is sometimes referred to as the heat. The bass guitar addition led the group to Nick McGill. Despite lacking in the height department, the band felt that he may be the drummer for them. While barely visible to the eye, his presence is more than audible. The group now cobbles shoes and makes custard pies. Also they rock. They rock hard."|
