Main Ballroom

A 9-piece (often more) band from Louisville, Kentucky, the Zach Longoria Project has soul in its veins and southern harmony in its heart. Weaving together elements of jazz and old-school R&B, the band creates a distinctive sound they like to call Kentucky Fried Soul.

ZLP came together in 2013 as a collaboration of passionate, driven musicians with a commitment to making good music and being good to each other. The result is an incredibly close-knit group of kindred spirits—and it shines through in their music.

In July 2014, ZLP released their self-titled EP and were featured on a “Live Lunch” series sponsored by WFPK, Louisville’s alternative radio station. A highland of 2015 was in June; ZLP played the Bunbury Music Festival in Cincinnati, sharing the same stage as the Avett Brothers, Lindsey Stirling & the Black Keys.

ZLP had the privledge in July 2017 to play Louisville’s own Waterfront Wednesday, sharing the stage with Strand of Oaks and Low Cut Connie- what a terrific show.
The band’s most recent release is Up Up & Away, released in June of 2016. They’re not wasting any time though- The next album is well in the works and ZLP is looking forward to sharing it with the world in the not-so-distant future.

Nine young men and a girl—The Broomestix are an R&B/Soul/Funk Jam Band out of the Nashville area; an exceptional group of musicians with an irresistibly funky rhythm section, stand-out vocalist, and tight, in-your-face, 5 piece horn section whose sound engages their audiences with irresistible rhythms and provides a unique introduction to emerging, right-now talent. Audiences all over the country rave about the explosive talent and creativity of their live shows. Broomestix members all live within the creative aura of Music City, but their music is their own, taking inspiration from funk, soul and jazz icons way before their time. You might find them at various music festivals and venues around the country, playing new original music all the time. Their recent accomplishments include, their newest recording, “Running From the Law,” two appearances on PBS Nashville’s show, “Music City Roots,” and the well earned love of many fans around the country. None of the members are over 21, and many are childhood friends. Young, yes they are. But skillful, exuberant talent has no limits. Enjoy the Broomestix, for an unforgettable musical experience.
