MORE INFORMATION

Shoot Low Sheriff - facebook @shootlowsheriff

Shoot Low Sheriff is an authentic Western Swing band based in Dallas, Texas. Inspired by the classic Western Swing bands, our music recaptures the sounds that swept Southern dancehalls in the thirties and forties. Shoot Low Sheriff makes the music fresh and exciting with an energy usually not associated with older musical styles.

Mr. CJ’s - facebook @mistercjs

Mr CJ’s is an eclectic musical group with roots in New Orleans music, but also includes strong Clapton, Funk,  Greatful Dead and Classic rock influences.  Their set for 508 will primarily honor Clapton's influence on the awareness of the 508 Park building and Robert Johnson's influence on the music that followed.  Josh Rockwell, CJ guitarist, is a dedicated student of all things Clapton.

The Matrix featuring Tony Pizzino

Tony Pizzino will be traveling in from South Carolina to play the 508 amphitheater stage. He personally played and jammed many times with Robert Lockwood, Robert Johnson's stepson. Lockwood's mentoring of Tony had a huge effect on his approach to the material he plays. He stays true to his old school blues roots and then incorporates his other influences including Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Zeppelin and several jazz guitar artists including Larry Carlton. His current project is with Parallel Lines Band in Spartenberg, South Carolina.    - facebook @parlinmusic

Three remarkably accomplished young musicians come together in T’Monde, the Acadian phenomenon that Offbeat Magazine has called “a creative fusion of classic country and out-of-the-way Cajun.” With a combined 10 GRAMMY nominations between members Drew Simon, Megan Brown, and Kelli Jones, T’Monde brings influences ranging from early Country music to ancient French and Creole ballads to present day Cajun music. Born out of friendship and a shared love for the music, T’Monde has developed a unique sound that is unmatched in Cajun music today. With their latest album, “ Yesterday’s Gone”, the band showcases their influences and musicianship which makes their sound so special.

The concert will take place in the Amphitheater of the historic 508 Park Ave (Brunswick Field Recording Studio/Warehouse) building in Downtown Dallas. T’Monde at Encore Park is coproduced by with Gold Teeth Music and the Museum of Street Culture
