Nick Dittmeier & The Sawdusters
Showcasing great local talent Nick Dittmeier and The Sawdusters will be joining us to kick-start the evening! A four piece Americana band from Louisville. They’ve released two popular singles Extra Better in 2013, and then Light of Day in 2014 and have been featured at Waterfront Wednesday.
“Through relentless touring, they’ve become mainstays of the Midwest Americana scene. In September of 2015, they set ten highway-tested, fine-tuned songs loose in the confines of LA LA Land Studios. The result is Midwest Heart/Southern Blues. The new album is a gritty, upbeat collection of songs, full of characters who were developed while staring over the dash of a beat up Ford van cruising through towns in the South and Midwest, whose better days are behind them. For fans of The Band, Little Feat, and the Turnpike Troubadours.”
Headliner John King
In a short time, King has been making a name for himself in Country Music. John’s debut radio single, Tonight Tonight, earned him his first Top 40 hit and was heard by millions of NFL fans and used to highlight CBS network’s Thursday night football throughout the 2014 season.
In addition to his rising success as an artist, King is also earning national recognition as a songwriter. In early 2016, King experienced his first #1 with a song called We Went recorded by artist Randy Houser. King co wrote the song with friends, Matt Rogers and Justin Wilson and received a 2016 ASCAP Songwriter Award for the song’s success. King also had a hand in writing Craig Morgan’s current single, I’ll Be Home Soon.
