Friday, June 28 | Emme Ryan | 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Emme Ryan is an indie singer/songwriter who hopes to bring people joy and connection with her songs. Her music is not able to be confined to one category; its purpose is simply to connect with peoples’ life experiences and become more personal and relational through each individual interpretation. Influenced by past eras of music but also including fresh, new perspectives, she is forming a sound that is truly her own.

Friday, July 5 | Swing That Cat | 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Born out of a simple idea and a love of good music, Swing That Cat is on a mission with a message: dance your tail off! What more could you ask for from a band that sounds like jump blues swizzled in swing with a dash of cabaret jazz and a splash of Bourbon Street. Formed in 2013, Swing That Cat has carved out a niche with a seductive sound and live shows that encourage their audiences to shimmy and shake.

Friday, Aug. 2 | Pure Jerry | 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Fronted by veteran jam guitarist Michael Sanfosso, the band explores the vast songbook, showcasing versatile and fierce musicianship with renowned signature vocals, uncanny and haunting.
