(1:00-1:45pm) JAMIE NOVA SKY
Following her 6 years dedicated to the All Female AC/DC tribute, Hell’s Belles (Seattle, WA), Jamie Nova set out to create the music that was manifesting itself within her soul. In 2010, she recorded and released her first album “The Softer Side” (produced by Jack Endino) following with a short tour in The Netherlands and Spain. 6 short years later she has formed an amazing band with the talents of JT Phillips on Guitar, Rick Friel on Bass and Christopher Kiger on Drums. They have just released their latest full-length album, “This is Life” which has been received with raving reviews. With over 15 years of touring under they constantly maintain a very serious level of professionalism and never disappoint with their high energy show and positive vibe. Bringing some happiness and inspiration along with some soul filled music, Jamie Nova Sky is a guaranteed good time for everyone. Jamie Nova’s vocals have been compared to the late Janis Jopling, Mellissa Ethridge, with a blend of Pink and Lady Gaga thrown in the mix. Powerful and Raw this band is a must see.

(3:30-4:15pm) THE IKE HARMON BAND
The Ike Harmon Band plays original Cordilleran Tribal rock'n'roll, blues, folk and ballads. The resulting music is passionate and exhilarating as only masterfully-crafted and powerfully played songs can be. Song topics are of the moment, touching on truth and rebellion, love and empowerment, disenchantment and uncertainty, joy and transcendence. Isaiah and Michael met while recording rhythm section tracks for Ike's new CD, These Mansions made of Sky. They play together whenever Isaiah returns home to Vashon from his studies in New York City.
