Main Stage - Main Street, Clendenin WV

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM | Mikele Buck Band

The Voice 2018 contestant Mikele Buck was born in the Hills of West Virginia, where his family was steeped in the traditional music of the Appalachians. Playing drums in rock bands for most of his high school days, after graduation Mikele bought his first guitar. He started writing songs and playing local taverns, bars, and bonfire parties, testing his own songs out on friends and family.

His original songs are a blend of all his musical influences, including Steve Earle, Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt and Red-Dirt artists like Randy Rodgers Band and Reckless Kelly. After returning from the Iraq war in 2005, Mikele went to Nashville to record his first CD and established his first band near Greenville NC. This band’s popularity grew and soon they were opening up for major acts such as Jason Aldean and Joe Nichols. From NC night clubs and fairs, the Mikele Buck Band began drawing record crowds of their own. His latest iTunes release has been pouring through car speakers all over the east coast, with the crowd favorite ‘Sweet Carolina’ at the helm.

In addition to Mikele, the MBB is comprised of Brandon Ross (lead guitar, vocals), Caleb Keen (bass, vocals), Ray Stephenson Jr (drums), and Sarah Anderson (fiddle, keyboard, vocals). Over the past 2 years, they have opened up for numerous national country acts including Jon Pardi, Brett Eldredge, Jason Micheal Carol, David Nail, The Cadillac Three, and Jerrod Niemann. They also opened up the Carolina Country Music Festival in Myrtle Beach in front of Hunter Hayes and Lady Antebellum.

9:10 PM - 11:00 PM | The Band Steele

The Band Steele released its debut studio-recording, MOON IN A MASON JAR (2017), three singles to country radio (“Tan Lines,“ “195”and most recently, “Sit Awhile”), a single to Christian radio (“Victory In Jesus”) and filmed five music videos. Their most recent music video, “195,” premiered on the “Country Fix” on Heartland-TV (August 2018) and digitally via Taste of Country (Sept. 2018) while the newly released single, “Sit Awhile” (August 2018) and corresponding music video have quickly enjoyed exponential engagement by millions across the globe from both country music enthusiasts and military supporters. With nearly 800,000 YouTube views alone, the “Sit Awhile” music video serves as a patriotic tribute to our men and women of military service and their families.

Passionate to recognize those who serve and sacrifice to risk their lives to lend aid to others—our military service men and women, veterans, first responders, as well as our country’s linemen—and inspired by the brave linemen and their families, the proficient song crafters co-wrote and released “The Lineman” as a dedication to a service nearly forgotten. The pair’s original track (“Good Times”) was featured in the John Travolta/Sharon Stone film “Life On The Line” (Lionsgate/2016). Bo also makes a cameo appearance performing the song in the movie.

The what-you-see is what-you-get, no-nonsense country duo doesn’t believe in music genre barriers and their music is 100% proof. They write about summer love, love loss, recognize fallen comrades, unsung heroes and share good-hearted spirit in rockin’ and rowdy, good-timin’ tunes that move the listeners to tears or raise a bottle of beer. From behind chicken wire or before a wide-open field of thousands. The Band Steele is a modern, ferocious force to be reckoned with… hopeful to etch its name as a long-time iconic symbol of the South.
