LANCO, Saturday Night


Country-rock band LANCO — which stands for Lancaster & Company — were formed in 2013 by namesake and frontman Brandon Lancaster. Hailing from Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky, the quintet members included drummer Tripp Howell, guitarist Eric Steedly, keyboardist Jared Hampton, and bassist Chandler Baldwin. Crafting feel-good country anthems tinged with classic rock and blues edges, LANCO got their start after a chance meeting between Lancaster and producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town) at a Keith Urban concert. Joyce signed LANCO to his publishing company and produced their eponymous debut EP. The band signed with Sony Music Nashville imprint Arista Nashville in late 2015. Their second EP, Extended Play, was released in early 2016. It contained three of the same songs as their debut, exchanging “High” for newer track and lead single “Long Live Tonight,” a pop-fused country song with a Kings of Leon undercurrent. In 2017, their song “Greatest Love Story” was also featured as the theme for the Netflix series The Ranch and this placement helped break the band, with the single reaching Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Top Ten.

Still Rock Bottom 1:00 - 2:00 PM

Still Rock Bottom - Mike Lynch and Bonze Justice

Opposites attract, so it’s said, and in the world of the country/rock duo, no truer words have been spoken about the personalities behind the name, “Still Rock Bottom.”

Performing songs from Cash to the Stones, this duo takes there unique and distinctly different personalities into a titan musical mash that works so well that their sound is unmistakable.

Mike Lynch, a seasoned Singer/Songwriter for over thirty years, is a true-blue admirer of traditional country music. As a fan of the greatest country artists that have come before, Mike puts his honest spin on the classics. His vocals are reminiscent of Merle and Hank and he will easily transport you back to the Grand Ole Opry with his musical renditions.

Bonze Justice is a poet at heart with a deep Dylan-esque voice that grabs hard. An avid songwriter for most of his life, Bonze has focused on live performance for the past 10 years. Steeped in the influences of The Rolling Stones and Faces, his diligent guitar work on both electric and acoustic guitars stand out on the leads accompanying Mike’s strong acoustic skills.

The duo’s different styles bring new meaning to the phrase “a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll.” Their original songs are well written with great hooks and melody lines that leave you wondering if you were listening to a classic hit when it’s a song of their own.
