Music Festival on the Country 92.5 Stage

Moonshine Bandits, Saturday June 11th, 8pm

Coming at the hick-hop genre from an old-school angle, like Johnny Cash-meets-the Beastie Boys, Central California's Moonshine Bandits feature rappers Tex and Bird. Only Bubba Sparxxx, Haystak, and a handful of other artists were mixing country, rap, and rock when the group made its debut in 2003 with the album Soggy Crackerz. Sparxxx made a guest appearance on their 2006 effort Prohibition, as did Danny Boone from the group Rehab, while the Bay Area's slang king, E-40, lent his skills to 2009's Divebars and Truckstops. In 2011, they signed with the Suburban Noize label and released Whiskey and Women, while 2014 saw Calicountry land with guest shots from a returning Danny Boone along with new friend Colt Ford. The Bandits' success continued to grow with Calicountry reaching number 22 on Billboard's Country Albums chart and its follow-up, 2015's Blacked Out, reaching number 13. In March of 2017, the Moonshine Bandits returned with their seventh album, Baptized in Bourbon; Gold Rush arrived the following year.

Mattson June 11, 5:30 pm

Raised in Middlebury, CT, Greg Mattson first picked up a guitar in elementary school and was immediately hooked - a natural progression after growing up with a steady diet of old-school rock and roll from his dad’s record collection. After befriending fellow guitarist and songwriter Matt Rose in middle school, the two recruited several friends to fill out the band lineup and began performing in local venues. Eventually, they met New Haven-based drummer Sam Oliver in 2017, whose unmatched drumming prowess quickly elevated and diversified the band’s sound. Subsequently, C.J. Armstrong joined with his soulful take on the keys, and bassist Joey Whelan brought his command of the bass and extensive knowledge of music theory to complete the current Mattson lineup. The band has quickly earned a name for themselves in Connecticut’s music scene, and has branched out into venues throughout New England and beyond, showing an impressive stylistic range that transcends genre lines. Mattson has released several singles including the 2018 country rock jam “Life Ain’t Fair” and is currently working on a full-length album which is expected to be released in mid-2022. Their releases can be found on Spotify and other streaming platforms, and their latest updates can be found on the @officialmattson Instagram and Facebook page.

Jesse James and The Peacemakers, June 11, 2:30 pm

Jesse James is an American singer/songwriter who’s original tunes reflect outlaw country, folk, Americana, bluegrass, and rock. Bringing an edgy sound with titles like “See You In Hell” and “All The Drugs”, he flips it around with songs that pull on your heart strings, like “Gave It My Best” and “If Wishes Were Horses”. Jesse has been writing his own acoustic songs since 2009 and prides him self on living the songs he writes.

The Peacemakers are a group of musician friends that Jesse calls upon for original shows based on their availability. You’ll likely never see the same group of guys, if you attend multiple shows. You can also catch Jesse at your local brewery or bar playing a three hour, mixed set with originals and covers. Sometimes it’s a Guitar Pull style show with Jesse and one or two acoustic artists trading off songs on stage, other times it’s a duo or trio with any mix of lead guitar, drums, or bass. And yet still, there are other times where Jesse is playing solo. As a self proclaimed “Country Boy In A Metal Head’s Skin”, Jesse covers everything from Aaron Lewis, Jamey Johnson, Willie Nelson and Tyler Childers to Slipknot, Alice In Chains, and Marilyn Manson, while mixing in Bob Marley, Sublime, and Snoop Dogg as well.

Jesse James And The Peacemakers have opened up for The Moonshine Bandits (twice), The Steelwoods, Big Smo, and have played the VIP stage at the Xfinity Theater opening up for Brantley Gilbert.

Jesse is currently focused on recording all 23 of his original songs at Vacation Haus Studios. When finished, the songs will feature artists that have appeared as part of the Peacemakers, as well as a slew of other musician friends wanting to add their parts to Jesse’s songs.
