The T Sisters are a vocally-driven contemporary folk band hailing from Oakland, California. The three sisters’ inventive songwriting is supported by their own acoustic instrumentation as well as by upright bassist Steve Height and mandolinist/guitar player Andrew Allen Fahlander. When performing their lively set of originals and covers—occasionally in arresting a cappella–they captivate audiences with close harmonies, creative arrangements, and sassy performance style. Touching on elements of folk, Americana, gospel, R&B, bluegrass and soul, the T Sisters weave evocative stories with a sound that is at once modern and timeless. As an opening act during their first Big Room visit, Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen more than earned this headlining return by bringing the crowd immediately to the dance floor and keeping them there.

The Southeastern Climbers Coalition's mission is to preserve wilderness climbing areas for generations to come. Boat Rock was the first area the SCC ever protected in 2000 and was the stepping stone that brought the organization to where it is today; owning 8 climbing areas and managing over 30. Float the Boat is one of the oldest climbing competitions in the United States and all proceeds from the competition go to preserving and maintaining Boat Rock, located near Atlanta GA.

Long acclaimed for their deft musicianship, potent songwriting and on-stage interaction, the members of ALO have played together for more than two decades. A live show is best described as a “little bit of fun, a little bit of pop, a lot of energy and a big dollop of dance-worthy music,” wrote San Diego Magazine. ALO features Steve Adams on bass, Lebo on guitar and pedal steel, Zach Gill on keys and ukulele, and Dave Brogan on drums.
“They can improvise and jam as good as anyone I’ve ever seen,” said Jack Johnson, who produced their 2010 album “Man of the World.” “But they got these songs that really stick in your head, as well.”
Since ALO sold out its last appearance, we suggest you get your tickets early.
