The Vines Bluegrass Festival Schedule of Entertainment
Feeding LeRoy (1:00-2:30 PM)
Feeding LeRoy came out of the collaboration of Sonja and Lee’s original songs, blending into a unique project, with their songwriting and vocal harmonies as the focus of this bands sound. It’s kind of a family affair now, with brother Luke stepping in on the harmonica and long time friend and bassist, Adam Staupe on the upright bass, both adding their vocal harmonies, creating somewhat of a gospel undertone that acts as it’s own instrument in the band.

No Man’s String Band (2:45-4:15 PM)
All is Fair in Love and Bluegrass” so says the No Man’s String Band with the release of their new album. The record is the result of three years of growth, lineup changes, and a band that celebrates tradition but is not constrained by it. “We wanted to record music that was undoubtedly bluegrass, entirely us, and completely approachable for lovers of traditional and original music” says mandolinist Nic Hentges. Formed in 2011 the No Man’s String band has been hitting the road hard to bring you the bluegrass tradition and it’s future. “No Man’s String Band truly ventures into places no string band has been before. The group is tight, in tune and original, and possesses a unique voice” says Phil Nusbaum of 88.5 FM Bluegrass Saturday Morning. Learn more >
Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank ft. Ryan Young of Trampled by Turtles (4:30-6:00 PM)
Brothers Teague and Ian Alexy wrote their first songs together as young kids in the South Jersey bay town Somers Point. They devised a plan and quickly went to work, each penning their own original song and presenting them to one another. Years later, the Alexy brothers, better known as Minnesota-based troubadours Hobo Nephews Of Uncle Frank, use that same approach on their new record American Shuffle (Chaperone Records 2015).

Pistol Whippin Party Penguins (6:00-8:00 PM)
Straight from the great Mill City comes the Pistol Whippin Party Penguins. Don’t let the name fool you! This is not a violent group of flightless aquatic birds looking for a party, but rather 5 self proclaimed gentlemen, 2 guitars, a mandolin, a bucket of fiddles, an upright bass, a banjo, and a 4 part vocal harmony that will make Donald Trump tweet about it. As they prepare to record their 4th album, this quintet from Minneapolis strives to maintain the original spirit of the “string band” while continuing to play new original music and creative cover songs. The combination of folk, rock, blues, bluegrass, and the occasional stage banter will create an experience that anyone can enjoy! Learn more >
