About the Bands:

Jawknee Lawhorne and the Outhouse Gang- “Jawknee Lawhorn was born in 1987 to a family wanted by the FBI. He spent his first year living on the run through the midwest to the southeast, ending up in Alabama. In and out of jail cells since he was 10, Jawknee has always said, “fuck em all”.

In 2016, he found some guys on the side of the road and started a band. In 2018 they changed some members and became Jawknee Lawhorn and the Outhouse Gang.

Since January 2018, they have put out two full length albums on SpitShit Records and have one more set for release in December 2018. The band has also toured pretty frequently with 2 west coast tours and one national ‘Armadilla’ tour. And two more tours happening before the year is gone.”

Molly Healey Trio: “Molly Healey is violinist, cellist, and singer-songwriter from Jefferson City, MO, currently residing in Springfield, MO. After several years on the road touring with acts such as Big Smith, Cornmeal, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and countless other Missouri-based bands, she began a solo project with just her violin, cello, voice, and a looping-effects pedal that allows her to record herself, and play multiple lines at one time. Her first solo album, Nightbirds, recorded with bassist Kyle Day at Centro-Cellar Studios in Columbia, MO, was released in the fall of 2015. Since recording Nightbirds, she and Kyle have joined forces with Zach Harrison on electric guitar, and now the group travels as a trio. Her sophomore album, Human, which also includes drums by Danny Carroll and backing vocals by Dallas Jones, was released in December of 2017.”

Carrie nation and the Speakeasy:”Carrie Nation & the Speakeasy is a high-energy “Brass ‘n’ Grass” sextet from Wichita, KS. The band, whose sound has been described as “…a stagecoach in overdrive”, has brought their eclectic blend of punk, bluegrass, and dixieland to packed bars, basements, and festivals across the US since their inception in the spring of 2007.

With a lineup of great musicians, the band’s live show is never the same twice. Brothers Jarrod and Zachary Starling provide acoustic guitar and drums/washboard; along with Dallin Bulkley on standup bass to round out the rhythm section. Garrett Briggeman adds to the energy with 5-string banjo, while Josue Estrada’s trumpet provides layers of jazz and Western to the sound. Tyler Grubb holds down double solo duties, playing both mandolin and trombone. This blend of influences and instrumentation ensures a unique and interesting show each night.

CNS plays hundreds of dates a year hitting 47 states and 5 countries. The band has built a dedicated following with their energetic live show and ability to fit on the bill with acts ranging from bluegrass to rockabilly; punk to ska. Breakneck mandolin solos melt into blaring trombone and trumpet lines, while the standup bass and feed-bucket-trap-set churn out driving rhythms that carry the force of a Kansas freight train.

Thoughtful songwriting that explores deeper, more interesting themes is what sets this band apart from the multitudes of acts content with singing about Whiskey and Women. From social satire to labor union songs to Civil War Ballads to existential journeys that explore life, death, despair, and indulgence, CNS’s songs will provoke thought, incite riots, and lure your children into a life of travel and debauchery.

With 2 original LP’s (2010 Self-Titled, 2013 Hatchetations) and 1 split EP ( 2012 Liberty, Solidarity, Responsibility w/ Cletus Got Shot), CNS has built a repertoire of original songs that continue morph with the progression of the band. Another 2017 full-length is on the horizon that will prove to highlight the band’s musical growth, and maturity of writing.

The band’s DIY mentality is shown through their self-recorded albums, self-published music, self-booked tours, and a community of local and regional visual artists that show the band’s distinctly grassroots approach. CNS has been pounding the highways and byways of this great country for 8 years now, bringing their songs and stories to thousands. Always providing a high energy, drink’em down atmosphere to any place they play, CNS has proven a dedication to their live shows with a solid understanding of what entertainment really means.”
