    Indie Alternative Band
    Founded in the summer of 2012, longtime friends Michael Callahan and John Parente decided to start collaborating in a new band. They were joined on drums by Tommy Hammer, a heavy-hitter with an uncanny ability of standing out without stepping on the other elements of the music. Michael and John supply the tunes as songwriters and Tommy supplies the heartbeat in what can be described as hook-filled, honest rock and roll that will leave you singing along long after last call.

    Scott & John of Hello SwindonAMC Fountain, 7-9pm

    Guitar & Percussion Duo
    The musical direction of Hello Swindon can only be described as eclectic.

    They are just as likely to come with a country–rock ditty as they are to rip into a ska or reggae song. Rock and roll is at the heart of things, but Hello Swindon does it in an acoustic-electric style that retains the energy and fun, but hints at the folksy blues beginnings of America’s greatest gift to the world.

    Think HorsesDistrict Stage, 7-10pm

    Original Alternative Band
    In ancient Greece, young medical students were exhorted to think horses, not zebras, when they heard the sound of hoofbeats outside; they were encouraged to resist the temptation to second-guess the obvious. A literal endorsement of simplicity. Summer flowers. The sound of a far-off train. One, two, three, just like that, simplicity in music is elusive…in the end it's best to just listen.

    Think Horses are: León - voice & guitar, Theo Belledin - keys and saxes, Adam Clark - batterie, Emilio Caruso - drums, John Chapman - contrabass

I have had the honor of singing the national anthem on several occasions for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox, and Phoenix Coyotes.

    Whitney did a few cartwheels when she found out she would be singing a duet with Robin Wilson of the Gin Blossoms, which is featured on her album “Any Thoughts on That?” It was a thrill for whitney when she was nominated for best pop single of the year for the Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards in 2007. Whitney pretty much mastered her back handspring when she won music video of the year and singer/songwriter of the year for the Phoenix Music Awards in 2008! Since then she has toured across the country and looks forward to her long awaited return in Phoenix.

    Whitney says, “While this journey has been filled with ups and downs, twists and turns, and many lessons learned, my deepest passion is living a life of purpose that will make God smile. It fills me with pure joy to announce that I am currently in the process of recording my first Christian album—“Beyond These Four Walls” has been stirring up in my heart for a very long time! The 12-song album will include original songs that I have poured my heart into, like “Be Silent, Be Still” and “Beyond These Four Walls,” as well as my own version of one of my favorite cover songs of all time...that would be “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen.&rdquo

They weave with ease universally heartfelt lyrics through catchy and beautiful melodies, reminding us that “the song” is alive and well. “We’re songwriters,” says the duo. “We work really hard on our craft, and we love to challenge ourselves. We’re constantly trying to improve.” Their first EP, Amelia’s Living Room Volume 1 spent a week in the top 10 of NoiseTrade’s “Top Downloads” list in September 2012, and Adam & I quickly gained a reputation around Music City as “the best band you’ve never heard of.”

    Adam & I’s debut record is out now, featuring “We Have Love”, “If I’m Taken”, and “Honey I’ll Take the Fall for Loving You”. The tunes are spirited and liberating while maintaining a simple, strait-up quality, as their “We make music . You might like it” slogan suggests. Adam explains, “Make no mistake. We want people to dig our music. We want people to love it! Still, the courage to be yourself, to be honest… that’s what we’ve poured into our music. It feels like a huge risk sometimes, but it’s worth it.” “I’m not sure I can tell you what to expect,” says Andrea. “Who do we sound like? We sound like us.”

While his initial training was in classical piano, he developed a passion for jazz in high school thanks to a fateful encounter with a Horace Silver record which prompted him to reorient his musical direction. Ben went on to study at Arizona State University with the head of ASU’s jazz program, Michael Kocour, where he performed, composed, and arranged with ASU’s Concert Jazz Band, Latin Jazz Band, Hip-Hop Ensemble, Hammond B-3 organ group, and jazz combos.
