Joined by Chuck Long on percussion, Jake Carl Miller on keyboard and Jacob Randolph Snyder on tenor sax, Earl (bass/vocals) and Sanchez (guitar/vocals) are driven by, and agree on, the most basic premise — it’s never too late for rock.roll.rumble dot com …”

Join us for Sunday evening music on the lawn, courtesy of The Fury!
From their bio: “The Fury is a straight ahead, honest American rock and roll band from the heartland. Fueled by raw emotion and high energy riffs, they are often compared stylistically to the bluesy bands of the late 60s and 70s. The Fury blazes a new trail with a fresh, modern approach to a style reminiscent of bands like Free, Cream, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, Mountain and more recently Rival Sons.”
From their bio: “The Rough & Tumble are as easy to detect as a stray dog on your doorstep– and as difficult to send home. The dumpster-folk, thriftstore-Americana duo, consisting of Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler, have been hobbling around the country in their 16’ camper since 2015. They picked up a couple of actual strays along the way– two 100lb dogs, Puddle & Magpie Mae– and have been making themselves at home in living rooms, bars, theaters, and festivals across the country.
“Their Americana music is restorative, their performance highly entertaining, their orchestra of unusual instruments intriguing, and… jokes and stories are worthy of an HBO special.” (Linda Bolton, Cozy Cabin House Concerts).”
