Scott Marek Band
October 29th, 2016
Raised in Downers Grove, Illinois, Scott is the third of eight children in the six girls/two boys Marek clan. Scott likes spending time with family and friends and especially enjoys bringing people together for outdoor BBQ's, sporting events, and to work on anybody's ailing car. Coming from a large, close family, he always knew whatever his dream was his family would be there to support him!

Scott started teaching himself how to play his dad's guitar in first grade and has been parading around the house playing a guitar and singing ever since. Although he can play and sing many music genres, it became apparent early on that he loved the greats of country music.

Scott's first public performance was at the church his family attended. In high school he participated in local talent shows and school contests. He has recently appeared as a finalist in two major country competitions: the Colgate Country Showdown and American Country Showcase. Currently Scott is one of the house band's for The World Famous Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville and playing venues throughout the midwest.

He has already had the privilege of opening for major country artists including Tim McGraw, Dierks Bently, Rodney Atkins, Diamond Rio, Bucky Covington, Keith Anderson, Colt Ford, Chely Wright, Jaron and the Long Road to Love, and many more. He has also had the honor of playing for many benefit celebrations that have supported St. Jude, American Cancer Society, team Layne, the Humane Society, Wounded Warriors, First Book of Mclean County, Jammin for Hammit and Save-a-Vet.

Until now, Scott has fine-tuned his skills and gained experience on-stage alone. He has searched long and hard for a handful of talented, dedicated, exciting musicians to complete his country music vision. Finally, one of the best male country voices in Illinois has teamed up with three fantastic musicians (Cody Gaesser, Kevin Yarger and Marty Kudla) to form one of the most talented Top 40 Country bands in Illinois.

Joe Stamm Band
November 4th, 2016
Stamm began performing in dive bars, for free, with nothing but his acoustic guitar in 2007. These days, venues don’t mind sending him, and the 5-piece band he formed, a few bucks to play. The Joe Stamm Band – consisting of Dan Greuter on lead guitar, Jon Byler Dann on bass and background vocals, Cory Petty on guitar and Michael “Iggy” Dickson on drums - continues to extend their reach and fan-base, having released a music video to national TV and anticipating an album release sometime in 2015. Has the Joe Stamm Band “made it”? – “No,” Stamm answers, “and what does even mean? I’m not concerned with ‘making it’ or topping any charts or moving to Nashville. We just want to make the best music we possibly can, inspiring and entertaining the people around us right now. If we keep doing it right, the people who identify with us and our music will continue to grow in number and enthusiasm. That’s our goal. That’s what we want. We started this thing in the grassroots of central Illinois. And we plan to stay firmly rooted. Roots and growth are dependent on one another. We trust our fans will keep us centered on both.”

Adairs Run
November 5th, 2016, 2016
Adairs Run is a country group with a fiery edge based in Nashville, TN. Their sound encompasses the roots from rock and roll all the way to melodies that tie into the heartfelt storytelling in today’s country music. The band is made up of four members; Todd Hanchock, Pat Pollifrone, Ian Daugherty, and Chad Yarger.

Front man Todd Hanchock, from Princeton, WV, began playing guitar and taking lessons when he was just 10 years old. His passion grew throughout the years as he took on learning more and more songs from his favorite artists ranging from the 80’s through early 2000’s rock and country worlds. He took to songwriting in his early college years after performing at a few open mic nights, and began to realize his passion stood with composing songs about the stories that he experienced throughout his life.

While in college, he met lead guitarist Pat Pollifrone, from Salem, VA, and the two began to work venues around Huntington, WV as an acoustic duo. Pollifrone, who had been in and out of several other groups growing up, began to focus on techniques with songwriting and stronger lead melodies to tie into their material. In 2012 the duo headed to Nashville, where they picked up bassist Ian Daugherty and drummer Chad Yarger. The group has been touring for the last few years regionally through the East Coast and upper Mid-West packing out many country music venues and gaining a wide range of fans along the way. Adairs Run has even picked up opening slots at many festivals and fairs and shared the stage with national acts such as Jason Aldean, Tyler Farr, Cole Swindell, Florida Georgia Line, Josh Thompson and many more.

In May 2016, the band released their first EP titled “Turn Back the Miles.” The new music features 6 new compositions including one song featuring hit rock artist Chris Daughtry. The first single will be released to radio by the end of June of this year. The band will continue to tour in support of the new release into early 2017 before going back into the studio to work on a full length album.
