Springsteen-esque Singer/Songwriter

You Knew Me When

You Knew Me When

9:00 PM

Indie Rock/Folk Duo

You Knew Me When…a phrase we can all relate to, and one that speaks to the relationship of the husband and wife duo to their art, their history, and their continued musical progression. After uprooting from their Nashville home and full-time jobs in June of 2012, Cie and Karisa Hoover set plans to tour the nation for a full year…however, they never stopped. Since that time they have continued to tour full time, creating and serving up an array of craft brewed compositions coast to coast, as well as releasing their first studio album “You, Me, and the Rest of the World” in late 2012. Many miles and memories later, the duo have released their new album “We Found Roads”. The album is a culmination of mile-markers and moments derived from giving up everything and finding new paths together -- now available via www.youknewmewhen.com, iTunes, and other online retailers.

The foundations of You Knew Me When are rooted in Nashville, Tennessee, and while both Cie and Karisa originally came to Nashville to pursue various music endeavors, it took the husband and wife nearly a decade to create music together as a united pair. In their early years as a couple Cie could predominantly be found in within the hard-rock scene, while Karisa could be found more often in vocal seminars and music education workshops, and it wasn't until mid 2009 when the two began writing music together. It was from that point on that the two began melding their life partnership into the musical partnership known as You Knew Me When.

Cornell Heard

Cornell Heard

9:00 PM

Western Swing Band

The beginnings of this band go back to 1968, when Cornell Hurd (vocals, guitar) and Frank Roeber (vocals, bass), refugees from high school rock and surf bands put together The Milpitas Submarine Band, a "hillbilly" band formed to entertain students at Homestead High School in the town of Cupertino, California. Cornell and Frank were joined by Russell E. Bowen and John Shudlick, vocalists who played guitar and percussion. The Cornell Hurd Band serves up a delicious combination of Western Swing, classic country, and boogie-woogie, spiced with a dash of rock ‘n roll.
