SONS OF STERLING, 9-11pm
Authentic, Gritty, and Powerful are words used to describe this band. Even though the roots of this group are fairly young, having been established in 2017, the members of the band Matt Breit (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) Troy Yardley (vocals, drums), Chad Caylor (vocals, bass guitar), and Mike Newsome (vocals, lead guitar) all have decades of experience working in other bands while honing their crafts and sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in country music today. The paths of these musicians brought them together to form Sons of Sterling with one goal in mind… to spread the word about Red Dirt music. Red Dirt, a genre of music with it’s flag planted primarily in Oklahoma and Texas, is a blend of outlaw country, Americana, and southern rock, with an independent, almost anti-pop culture attitude. Sons of Sterling takes a “no holds barred” approach to deliver a fun, energetic, and powerful performance.
KYLE AUSTIN, 7-8:30pm
West Philadelphia, born and raised. On a playground is where I spent most of my days. Chilling out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool. Shootin’ some b-ball outside of the school.
Ok, but really.
Kyle is a Kansas born musician. He was raised on traditional country passed down from his grandfather. He moved to Lawrence, KS straight out of high school, and has been performing music since.
With a highly inclusive setlist, Kyle plays a variety of genres at his shows, while also performing his country originals.
