Levee Town

Levee Town is a radiantly hot rockin' Americana foursome out of Kansas City. Their music ranges from covers of Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, Bob Dylan, and Big Joe Turner, to originals like Go to Heaven, The Winter song, and Forgive the Intrusion. The sound is a searing mix of traditional rock'n'roll, blues, and rockabilly.

The beat is supplied by Jan "Big Show" Faircloth. He is originally from central Kansas, and builds the rock solid foundation of Levee Town's rhythm. He can mesmerize you with a constant count, bang'em like Bonham, or tickle your ears with the brushes. Jan even sings chorus.

Jacque Garoutte multi-instrumentalist arranger and producer fills in the bass with years of musical experience. From Miami Oklahoma, Jacque lays down a deep strong bass line, supplies quite bit of energy onstage, and sings with a smooth single malt voice.

From Chicago, Jimmie Meade plays the harmonica like a man possessed by…angels and demons alike. He will make you smile as he jumps and jives during his intense harp and vocal renditions of Dylan and Waters.

While growing up in central Oklahoma, Brandon Hudspeth saw Johnny Cash on Sesame Street and had to start pickin' on guitars. As he sings, he rings the neck of his wide body Gibson like its a Flying Vee dipped in gasoline.

These guys are blazing hot! They will cause you to stomp your feet, clap your hands, and maybe dance on the tables. Levee Town generates a lot of excitement and a smokin' good time. For your own protection, you better wear a fire suit!

Brandon Miller Band

The Brandon Miller Band is an exploration into the blues spectrum. They are in the midst of creating and writing their own music and tailoring select blues gems for substantial 2010 shows. We invite you to experience a truly explosive celebration of music.

Brandon Miller has been very popular in the Kansas City area now for several years. This young guitarist plays with the finesse and skill of a player twice his age. While being influenced by many other great blues musicians, his interpretation and style of blues will hit you with a sense of emotion . . . and he will mean every note of it. Let the tones soak into your heart as you listen and enjoy his heavy blues-influenced style.

Josh Vowell & The Rumble

Josh Vowell & The Rumble is a four-piece progressive blues band that stormed onto the Topeka music scene in November, 2007. The band, comprised of Josh Vowell, who electrifies on lead guitar and vocals, Myrl “Biggs” Brown on bass, Justin “J” Shelton on the blues harp, and Dave Spritzer keeping the beat on drums, showcases a powerful combination of extensive musical experience and exceptional raw talent. With a string of individual successes with other bands paving their way, the group found their true calling through the sound and soul of the blues, setting out to leave their own mark and legacy on an iconic American art form.


Financial assistance for this project has been provided by the Missouri Association of Community Arts Agencies and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, with Challenge America funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, who believes that a great nation deserves great art.
