Duane Betts

As a teen, Duane Betts cut his teeth sitting-in regularly with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Allman Brothers Band. A consummate musician, Betts led Malibu rock-n-roll outfits such as Backbone69 and Whitestarr, then ascended to a near-decade stint playing guitar alongside his father, Dickey Betts, in his group, Great Southern. Whether as a touring guitarist for folk-rockers Dawes or sharing the stage with luminaries from Kid Rock and Jack Johnson to Gov't Mule and Phil Lesh, Betts’ six-string stories and impassioned songs portray a life, and a history, steeped in blues, rock-n-roll, and country music tradition. 2017 saw Duane record and tour with the band JAMTOWN, featuring G.Love, Donavon Frankenreiter, and Cisco Adler. Currently Betts is getting ready to perform music from his highly anticipated EP: Sketches of American Music.

Billy Rice Band

Born in Ohio, Billy moved to Florida at age 7. He bought his first guitar from Sear's & Roebuck by mowing lawns and saving money. For some reason, he just had this burning desire to play. Forming a band with some guys from school, he played his first professional performance at 14 years old. From there, it didn't lake long for Billy to get a reputation as a great act.

Soon, Billy started getting bookings opening up for some national acts. He toured extensively throughout Florida and graced the stage with acts such as: Tommy James, The James Gang, Marshall Tucker, The Box Tops, The Turtles, Mama's & Papa's, Moody Blues and even Eric Clapton. At one point he did a weekly stint with the Outlaws every Friday night.

At his peak point Billy's family life pulled him away from the road and he elected to stay home and take care of his two children. He felt being there as a Dad for baseball, football and everything else was every bit as rewarding and more important then anything else he could have done. Billy still played locally though, and never lost that gift he has with people.

Now, better than ever, Billy's playing a very busy schedule and has played with Toby Keith, John Michael Montgomery, Lonestar, Danny & Frankie Toler from the Allman Brothers, Ricky Lynn Greg from the band Head East, and Mark Chestnut.
Billy has been involved with many charity events. By using his name they were able to raise tens of thousands of dollars. Some of these events include the Boy's Club, Girl's Club, Youth Centers, different Municipal organizations, Woman's Resource Center, Manatee Children's Services, Thunder By The Bay and the list goes on and on. Billy has been nominated and chosen many times for the Entertainer of the Year Award. In his hometown Billy has received several awards for The Children Advocate of the Year for helping so many kids.

John Whiteleather Trio

John Whiteleather hails from the south western part of Pennsylvania. At seventeen, he was LA bound and jumped into the music scene there. Eventually, the love for 60’s Rock and Roll, Classic Rock, Rockabilly, Vintage Country, Bluegrass and Folk became a genre of its own, “Americana”. Mixing many old classics with catchy originals and an energetic stage performance was the key ingredient. Finally John ended up in Sarasota, Florida to escape Swedish winters, and moved back to the USA. With local favorite, Zack Yoder on guitar and Ex-Boneshakers stand up bassist, Gary Cliff, this trio is one of the areas top acts. They are known for their broad repertoire of songs and organic sound. Many B-sides instead of the “typical” beachy repertoire. Their eclectic song mix consists of originals and covers by the likes of Gordon Lightfoot, Springsteen, Mellencamp, Eagles, Tim Buckley, Steve Earle, Eagles, Rolling Stones, Merle Haggard, Bluegrass classics and more.
