9 p.m. - Midnight: Orchard Fire Band

Orchard Fire is one of the hardest working independent bands in the music business playing 270 shows in 20 states since June of 2017. Their highly anticipated sophomore Ep "The Temperance Sessions", recorded by Jared Conrad at CTM Studios on music row in Nashville Tennessee.

The heart of this band are the songs. Songs that when stripped down to just Melissa Odom's expressive alto, her acoustic guitar, the fiddle, and the mandolin, are patently country, almost bluegrass at times. Songs that tell stories of love and life in full color. The ringing, crunchy guitar work of Justin Odom and the big pocket drumming of his brother Jared Odom transport the tunes from campfire to pumping rock club. It's a fresh and inspiring sound.

"Orchard Fire has swagger and grace, and onstage they shine with charisma. I've seen them take the stage for a cold audience who didn't know them or their music to a man, and win them over handily by the end of the set. Their music stays with you, and you find yourself singing the chorus of "Now or Never" or "Lullaby" weeks later. There is so much going on in those songs musically and the blend of styles make it so much more interesting than much of what you hear from typical country radio." -Byron Neighbors, Byron Amplification
