1:30 - 3:00 PM SIRSY
It’s hard to imagine a sound this big coming from just two people. The Boston Globe calls SIRSY the “little band with the big sound.” Fans call them the little band with big heart. Hailing from Upstate NY, Sirsy is a sassy pop-rock duo with folk intimacy. Sirsy is known for their passionate, honest, heartfelt live performances that have a charming intensity, loads of stories from the road, and even some nerdy jokes.

Playing more than 200 shows per year all over the US, Sirsy is fronted by charismatic singer-songwriter & drummer Melanie Krahmer (who also plays bass on a keyboard with her drumstick). Mel’s incredible voice is one of the most powerful and flexible voices you’ll ever hear. She also plays piano, melodica, and the occasional badass flute solo too. Mel's bandmate, husband, co-writer, & bestie is Rich Libutti. Rich masterfully plays a well-loved and road worn Rickenbacker through a pedal board full of vintage effects. Rich also plays bass (and at live shows often does it on a pedal board with his feet). These 2 multi-instrumentalists manage to sound like a full band and somehow do it all with big smiles on their faces. Their clever smart songs have more hooks than a tackle box, with lyrics that center around empowerment and resilience. Fans have supported the duo through the pandemic, their 11 records, and Mel's 2 bouts with cancer. Every show is like a celebration for this couple and their fans. Come celebrate life with them!

Sirsy has warmed stages for: Brandi Carlile, Grace Potter, Maroon 5, Train, Collective Soul, Cheap Trick, Lifehouse, Spindoctors, Shovels & Rope, Blues Traveler, Patty Smyth and many more. Their songs have been featured on HBO, PBS, MTV, and on Showtime's hit TV show "Shameless". Their last several records were produced by Grammy-Winner Paul Q Kolderie. The SXSW Music Blog says "Sirsy's not just a 2 piece but a head scratching WOW!" And the Houston Music Blog says “Sirsy makes edgy feel-good music that’s fun to watch. You must see them live!

3:30 - 5:00 PM

Retro comprised of Tom Murphy lead guitar and vocals, Mark Schott lead guitar and vocals, Mark (Taco) Rodriguez drums and vocals and Greg Brockway bass guitar. Playing classic rock a little country and a lot of one hit wonders to keep you dancing.
