A California girl with a Nashville heart, Lynn has made it her mission to capture that transportive quality in her music, whether she’s in the recording studio or onstage. Since launching her career in April 2014 with her self-titled debut EP (which was arranged and produced by “Rascal Flatts’” Jay DeMarcus), Lynn has been out on the live circuit, opening for both Kenny Chesney and Kenny Rogers, performing during CMA Fest, on the KNE New Music Stage at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, and playing at local Nashville venues, including The Listening Room and Belcourt Taps. Most recently, Lynn has teamed up with hit songwriter/producer Ross Copperman (Dierks Bentley, Brett Eldredge) to delve into a new catalog of upbeat songs that celebrate the sheer fun of living and loving, including her new single Afterparty, which has been picked up by SiriusXM’s “The Highway”.

“Black Stone Cherry” with “Shamans Harvest” ~ Doors Open at 7 PM
“Black Stone Cherry” bridges the gap between the blue collar craftsmanship of dirty, bluesy, ballsy, pedal-to-the-metal Hard Rock steeped in the ancestral lineage of Southern Rock and the warm, broad embrace of the Rock-radio mainstream. There’s enough boot stomping, soulful meat-and-potatoes in the Kentucky Band’s stew to invigorate Middle America, with the melodic chops to conquer the worldwide stage. If “The Allman Brothers” and “Metallica” met up, got drunk, raised some hell and then crashed into a big brawl against one another, only to have Robert Johnson break it all up . . . that’s essentially the sound of “Black Stone Cherry”. The “Black Stone Cherry” sound is as timeless as a backyard BBQ, a rundown farmhouse or a worn-in pair of Levi’s, but as forward thinking as anything generated by the millennial crowd in the modern age. 2014’s Magic Mountain carries the torch for the brightest moments of Classic Rock history, but it’s no throwback. The energy, enthusiasm and skill of today’s best Rock n’ Rollers keeps one “Black Stone Cherry” boot planted in the future, even as they call upon the “musical Ghosts of the past”. The Band’s substantial catalog has given birth to a bevy of Rock-radio staples like White Trash Millionaire, In My Blood and Please Come In. It’s all driven by the vocal charisma and vibrant lead Guitar shred of Chris Robertson, the driving dynamic crunch of Guitarist Ben Wells, the rhythmic pulse of Bassist Jon Lawhon and the always-in-the-pocket groove of Drummer John Fred Young, all of whom add their voices to “Black Stone Cherry”’s soaring melodies and instantly accessible vibe.
“Modern Day Romeos” ~ 10 PM
The musical selection of MDR is about as wide as it gets. The spectrum includes Motown classics, Classic Rock treasures, Metal Anthems, ’80′s favorites, ’90′s gems, and the top hits of the 2000′s. Says “Modern Day Romeos” of themselves,”We alter most of the songs to our own style and add a lot of comedy and medleys to make your favorite songs new to you again. Our fan base ranges from 21 to 61 on a regular basis and we want to make sure we have something for everyone.”
Pauly Shore ~ 7 pm OR 9 pm (2 Shows; 2 Seatings)
Stand-up Comic, Actor, Writer and Director Pauly Shore tasted super-stardom in 1990 when his precedent-setting MTV show “Totally Pauly” hit the airwaves to major fan approval. The show ran for 6 years, leading him to television and film roles. In 1993, he wrote and starred in a one-hour HBO television special, Pauly Does Dallas, which drew in even more loyal fans. He had roles in films from 1988, providing supporting comedy relief, but it was the wildly popular Encino Man (1992), partnered with Sean Astin and Brendan Fraser, that put Pauly on the map. Many Films quickly followed, including Son in Law (1993), In the Army Now (1994), Jury Duty (1995), Bio-Dome (1996) and The Curse of Inferno (1997). He provided voices in animated features such as Casper: A Spirited Beginning (1997) and The Goofy Movie Franchise (1995/2000). His first Comedy Album, The Future of America, was named Best Comedy Album by the College Music Journalists in 1991, while the National Association of Record Merchandisers nominated his second Album, Scraps from the Future, for a Best Sellers Award. In 2003, Shore produced, wrote, directed and starred in Pauly Shore Is Dead, a semi-autobiographical Mockumentary, and in 2005 starred in the reality television series Minding the Store. His production company, Landing Patch Productions, has produced multiple Films and Specials including Natural Born Komics (2007), Adopted (2009), Vegas Is My Oyster (2011), and Pauly-tics (2012). Pauly has made several appearances in recent years as a recurring guest on Howard Stern’s Late-Night Show, as well as The David Letterman Show. He currently tours the Country with his stand-up Comedy Act.

Jana recently debuted a 4th Song on One Tree Hill that aired in mid-January. Jana is no stranger to the bright lights with her impressive string of Movie and Television roles, but she credits her recent break into the Music Industry as her most important accomplishment to date. “I love acting, but my heart and soul is in singing. I’ve been terrified to pursue this dream because it’s so personal to me. If someone tells me they don’t like my voice, it’s a lot harder of a hit to take,” said Jana. “This is what I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve wanted to do Music my entire life. Growing up in Michigan, Jana is no stranger to the rich history of Country Music, crediting one of her favorite memories to baking cookies with her grandmother while listening to Patsy Cline. These little moments are one of the many reasons why Jana hopes to share her music with others. And she’s doing just that as the Singer-Songwriter is lighting up Country Music with her emotionally moving Songs and sweet, Country vocals, selling over 150,000 Digital Singles in the first six months alone. All eyes are on Jana as she boldly graces Country Music with a fresh, new sound and powerful new Music. “Country Music is in my blood.
