WMNF Birthday Bash Pearl Sponsor
PAUL THORN - There are some artists who are simply undeniable; they are a force of nature. Enter Paul Thorn,a favorite WMNF artist with great soulful roots rock and tales of southern working class life and loves. Thorn has animated characters, slowed us down to contemplate life, and stopped our hearts with beautiful ballads. He has assembled a deep and rich, if sometimes zany, catalog of music, all written from an unmistakeably personal perspective celebrating life. And then add The Paul Thorn Band, hot damn are they all players! Tight and hot, they will rock the Birthday Bash.
SAMANTHA CRAIN AND THE MIDNIGHT SHIVERS -the 22 year old Choctaw Indian with spell- binding folk rock is one of the most acclaimed new artists in music.
LEGENDARY JC'S - The energy of James Brown, the soul of Otis Redding, the chops of Little Richard: sweaty, horn-fueled, old-school R&B.
BARELY PINK - the REUNION of Tampa's great power pop band of 1995-2003
NERVOUS TURKEY raucous blues rock by one of Tampa Bay's favorite live bands
AMANDA SHIRES - talented Texas fiddler and singer-songwriter
TRIBAL STYLE - the finest roots reggae
KNOCK DOWN DRAG OUT - the new band fronted by Rocket 88's Michael Bales plays turbocharged rockabilly.
SUITE CAROLINE This twelve year old is bursting out of Tampa on her way to becoming a major star. See her now so you can say you saw her when....
HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL One of the most played bands on WMNF in the last year, they play infectious, lyrical folk-rock with great hooks.
RAY OLAN AND THE JAZZ OLE BAND Salsa pop reggae
SARASOTA SLIM Longtime blues hero and guitar virtouso.
