Michael Allman - Michael Allman is the eldest son of Southern Rock Legend Gregg Allman. That doesn't mean that his musical path has been paved with gold. Born in Daytona Beach, Florida, he led the “Michael Allman Band” throughout most of the 1990's before he traded it in for the serenity of domestic life. It was during this period that he faced his greatest obstacle, testicular cancer in 2002. After a full recovery, Michael decided to give music another attempt and in mid 2007 began singing and writing again. In 2008 he started recording his debut CD. During that year he kept busy while working on his CD, by making over 100 guest appearances with many different bands and musicians from coast to coast. In the Fall of 2009, he completed and released “Michael Allman’s Hard Labor Creek” on his own All-Skinn Music Group label.
In late 2012 Michael met Mark Shane and formed The Michael Allman Band.
With his world-weary voice, the sheer power of the music, and songs like “Circus Full of Clowns”, “If Dreams Were Money” and the unique “Mule Named Whiskey”, Hard Labor Creek makes everyone young and old want to get up and dance.
======================================Kelly Richey - The Kelly Richey Band features heavy, riff-soaked blues guitar driven head first into monster funk bass lines and rock/hip hop infused backbeats. Freekbass and Big Bamn join master blues guitarist Kelly Richey for a powerful blues- rock/funk power trio that aims to rock the house. Kelly Richey’s distinctive, burn-up-the-fretboard guitar work and husky vocals meet up with the legendary Freekbass, one of the best funk bassists in the music world today, and drummer Big Bamn, a powerhouse drummer who lays down solid, in-the-pocket grooves that forge the backbone for Freekbass and Richey to fly on. These masterful players bring unparalleled energy and brilliant musicianship to the stage, deftly melding blues, rock, and funk for a dizzyingly potent wall of sound
The Porchdogs -The Porchdogs formed in order to perform the kind of music they loved but rarely heard in Central Florida--the accordion driven music of Louisiana Cajun/Zydeco and also Irish and German for special events. As a trio, the group plays acoustically (strolling or stationary) or amplified (with pre-recorded bass and drums for backup). As a full band (the best way to hear the group), Porchdogs adds bass and one of several fine drummers we normally use. For German Music we bill ourselves at the “Polka-Dogs”, and for Irish as "Contradance".
The Porchdogs band is well-known throughout the state, regularly performing at Orlando's theme parks, at festivals and fairs, at nightclubs, and at numerous corporate and private events. The group is ideal for theme parties, Octoberfest, St. Patricks day, Swamp Theme, Gator, Mardi Gras, New Orleans, 'Fish Camp,' Fais do-do, Rural, and Holiday and Christmas; great for family reunions, house parties, wedding receptions, barbecues, picnics and casual get-togethers.
The Porchdogs is the only group (national, Louisiana, or Florida) to have performed every year (all 15) of the Ft. Lauderdale Cajun Zydeco Crawfish Festival--now defunct, but at the time the largest event of its type in the country. The band has also been a featured act daily for over 15 years at the World Famous Iron Horse Saloon during Bike Week and Biketoberfest, Universal Studios Mardi Gras, Walt Disney World Port Orleans, and Cypress Gardens. They have appeared at House of Blues, and Skippers Smokehouse, and Johnny Longboats, as well as numerous clubs and dance halls throughout the country.
Some New Orleans dishes you can look for at the Festival are Crawfish Etoufee, Po Boys, Jambalaya, Muffulettas, Beignets, Red Beans & Rice, Gumbo and much much more!
