“The BanjerDan Show” with Special Guests: Tim Jackson and Dulcie Taylor!
"Acoustic Artist Tim Jackson, born and raised on the Central Coast of California opens new doors into the realm of the new millennium style of folk music. A sound from the street, with feeling and depth, his music has enlightened the spirit of modern Americana.
"Raised on the sounds of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, The Beatles, and the Who, Tim has blended his favorite styles into a decidedly assertive brand of rock that evokes the finest musical emotions of the 60's while unmistakably charting the course the genre is pursuing into the 21st Century. Tim's style is undeniably timeless and genuine.
"His raw emotional presence coupled with his boundless enthusiasm and energy of his acoustic solo performances have won him legions of fans who are the backbone of his now considerable following. On his eight critically acclaimed releases, you can find his own style of songwriting from Americana to rock and soul."

"Makes a mesmerizing impression" is how Barnes & Noble describes Dulcie Taylor's music. She calls her music American roots - a mix of rock, folk, pop, country, blues, R&B. MesaBluemoon Recordings have released 5 CDs of her original music, all of them garnering much radio airplay and great critical response, such as The Washington Post - "She writes from the heart for the heart." Dulcie has reached No. 1 at Amazon for Top-Rated Americana and she currently has two original song videos at her YouTube Channel with 825,000 views - www.youtube.com/user/DulcieTaylorMusic She has performed at venues as diverse as The Kennedy Center (DC), Mainstage Kerrville Folk Festival (Texas), and the Bluebird (Tennessee). She is very much looking forward to performing at the Toro Creek Event Center.

“The BanjerDan Show” with Special Guest: Pete Hicks!
I'm very excited to welcome a good friend as my Special Guest this Thursday: Mr. Peter Hicks! I met Pete at the Brookdale Bluegrass Festival back in 2000. He invited me to join him and some other new friends (Frank Solivan II and Jim Lewin) at a recording session the next day. That session was released as "Upstairs Jam," and it's still one of my favorite projects of any I've done.
Pete says: "I have been a bluegrass and country and western performer since the seventies. Born in Germany, a military brat and raised hearing the Grand Old Pry on the base radio. Currently playing with three bluegrass groups, Courthouse Ramblers, Bean Creek, and Central Valley Boys and the California Rodeo Trail Ride Band.
Instruments- fiddle, guitar, mandolin, ukulele and banjo.
This show will present a variety of styles of music, including Bluegrass, Country, swing , maybe a song or two in Spanish or German, and requests from the audience will be accepted."

“The BanjerDan Show” with Special Guest: Archie Logsdon!
"Archie Logsdon (formerly known as "Lost Hills") is a poet and songwriter from California's Kern River Valley. His songs of love, death and wandering in the wilderness are evocative of the Southern Sierra region where he grew up and now resides. Clean country guitar picking and plaintive harmonica provide the background for his poetic imagery and gritty stories of faith, betrayal and redemption. 'I find my stories out on the backroads of California where the ghosts of cowboys, miners, outlaws and drifters sit around campfires trading lies and baring their souls.""
