Rosie Flores and the Rhythm Rockers 10:15p
Award-winning Girl of the Century, Working Girl with Guitar Rosie Flores has gone surfing, knifing her turquoise axe through some new uncharted musical waters.
These past few years have found her nabbing two fan voted Ameripolitan Awards in 2014 – taking one for Best Female Honky Tonk and the other for Best Female Rockabilly; a Peabody Award that she accepted onstage at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City for her narration of the documentary “Whole Lotta Shakin”; producing Janis Martin’s 2012 CD “The Blanco Sessions” which tied at number one with Rosie’s “Working Girls Guitar” on the FAR chart; and a multimedia Janis Martin Tribute that she created and performed at the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012.
All these accolades propelled her into performing at the Chuck Berry Tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with other great musicians including Vernon Reid and David Johansen, which led Rolling Stone Magazine to proclaim that she was “one of the most impressive acts of the evening…and the only performer brave enough to playfully attempt a duck walk.”

The Merles 9p
The Merles are a classic country/western swing band based out of Austin, TX featuring Todd Deatherage, Derek Tarnow, Loren Tarnow, Phil Spencer and Matt Winegardner. They play a mix of originals and covers by their favorite artists, such as Bob Wills, Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell, Ernest Tubb, and of course, Merle Haggard. The band strives to create a classic stripped down honky-tonk sound with dueling twangy guitars, upright bass, tight harmonies and light drums played with brushes keeping the dance beat.
