Madeline Smith, Country

On Stage from 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Madeline Smith, raised in New Jersey, has a southern family background and grew up on country music. At age 15, Madeline found her voice, put together a band, and started performing as a cover band. She also started picking up the guitar and soon immersed herself in songwriting. At age 16, she began working with Kent Wells in Nashville to produce her debut album. Madeline wrote or co-wrote all the songs and released the album in the summer of 2013. She immediately took off as an artist and soon opened for Lauren Alaina and Darius Rucker.

"Madeline was raised in New Jersey, but with family roots that run deep in the moist soil of Louisiana, her southern charm is undeniable the moment she walks in the room. A stunning vocalist, she also plays the piano and guitar, and is a prolific writer drawing poetic lyrics from the deep well of a tender and introspective heart. " Kent Wells from Kent Wells Productions, Nashville, TN.

Bob Lanza Blues Band, Blues

On Stage at 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

There is only one way to play the blues: From the heart with ferocity as if your life depends on it.

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Bob Lanza from the wilds of north New Jersey leaves no doubt as to motivation with a scorching second release following his debut Things Ain’t So Bad (2009). Years with Floyd Phillips and the Mudflaps and backing legends like James Cotton prepared his audition as a new blues guitar hero.
