You might've seen Heather Gillis front the late Butch Trucks Freight Train on StageOne in 2016. The 23 year old returns complete with a full band to perform original rock n roll, soul, roots, and blues. Gillis is the complete package as a guitar player, lap steel player, songwriter, singer, and arranger. She and her band have the stage presence and confidence to appeal to a variety of musical tastes be it rock, soul, jazz, roots or gospel.

Vanessa Collier is a multi-talented blues performer who brings charm and passion to her fiery, soulful performances. At 2, she's toured 11 countries with her 5-piece band. Collier is a Berklee College of Music graduate and is backed by multiple Blues Music Award nominations.

“There’s a young lady [Vanessa Collier] came onstage with me, I forget where I was, but she’s playing an alto saxophone, and man, she was amazing.” – Buddy Guy
