Live Music

The Hood Family Band

Rooted in years of experience, The Hood Family Band brings together thoughtful instrumentation and emphasized vocal harmonies for a unique yet familiar sound. They look to folk, Americana, and bluegrass as inspiration for their original songs as well as their renditions of the classics. The Hood Family Band is just that, a family--comprised of Jennifer, Jim, Penny, and Jerrica Hood.


Jake and Jackson

Jake is the former lead singer of the Boat Drunks, and now plays shows with his son Jackson. Jake and Jackson are hugely influenced by the Beatles and will be incorporating them into the show. Jake grew up in the 80s, so they play some really cool tunes for Gen X. 70s, 90s, current pop, country... "anything that we think sounds good and people like makes our list."
