About the Artists

Samantha Fish is a dynamic force in modern blues music, captivating crowds with her explosive but elegant guitar work. Jesse Dayton, meanwhile, has recorded with the likes of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Rob Zombie. Their newest effort, “Death Wish Blues,” is out now.

Quiet Riot asked fans to “Cum on Feel The Noize” four decades ago and the band continues to rock crowds around the world. Their 1983 smash metal album “Metal Health” made Quiet Riot the first metal band to top the pop chart at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200.

Three Dog Night is a legendary pop-rock band that dominated the charts between 1969 and 1974, with no other group having more Top 10 hits. Marking nearly 50 years on the road, Three Dog Night continues to entertain audiences with a mix of classic hits and newer releases.

Latino Fest feat. Noel Torres offers fans the chance to enjoy the work of Noel Torres, a regional Mexican singer-songwriter and accordionist from Sinaloa. Torres started singing professionally at age 15 and has made a name for himself with a mix of romantic ballads and powerful corridos.
