Lick Creek

Lick Creek brings a unique sound to today’s pop country dominated world. They add some classic 70’s rock/southern rock and mesh it with a swampy blues and country sound.  They are paying homage to the greats who pioneered outlaw country, and new artists like Eric Church and Blackberry Smoke. Add to that, powerful male and female vocals with fast paced stage energy and you get what folks call one of the best country bands they’ve seen.

Captain Geech

Captain Geech is a “Show Band” that will take you back in time by uniquely performing hit songs from an era that hasn’t really past yet.  The show is an energetic, non-stop musical ride that brings the audience to thier feet and never quits, Geech will wear a crowd Out!

The Collective

We are a collection of local musicians who LOVE to play good music. We have come together from all types of music styles with one common goal: to play good music that people can hear, feel and enjoy. We have disco, funk, rock and pop in our collection.
