The Bootleggers play classic rock, country and original music, with influences including Van Morison, Skynyrd, Merle Haggard, Hand Williams, The Beatles, Georgia Satelites and many more. The band-with Mike Grimes playing bass guitar and singing vocals, Bob Smile on lead guitar, Jerry Mosley on drums and Billy Tucker on guitar and vocals-takes the stage at 6 p.m.

Leading off at 5 p.m. is Ten Dollar Pony, a group whose musical style varies, with a little bit of folk rock, country rock, blues, and Latin. Ten Dollar Pony is the duo of Larry Nair on vocals, guitar, dobro, banjitar, mandolin, and Liza Beth Oliveto on vocals, guitar, and mandolin. They were featured in last fall’s Hermitfest, and also at Smith Valley’s exclusive Burning Girl Festival. Over the past three years their music has begun reaching a wider audience, having performed in Colorado, Minnesota, North Carolina, California, Vermont, and all over Northern Nevada.

Smallwood Foundation, American Family Insurance Mark Smith Agency, Joyce’s Fine Jewelry, Bing Materials, Borges Carriage Rides, Dr. James the Dentist, Nevada State Bank and Pit Stop Pots.
