ABOUT WHISKEY JAM NASHVILLE
In January 2011, Whiskey Jam started a Monday night event in the burgeoning Midtown Nashville area. Built on the idea of "Good music, good friends, good party," what began as an underground writer's night, quickly became a musical & social mainstay of the local music scene. The first few months saw guest artists like OneRepublic, Kip Moore, Brett Eldredge, David Nail, Chris Young, Dustin Lynch and The Fray. The laid-back atmosphere was cool enough for locals, yet accessible enough for visitors. Music Row A-Listers enjoying beers and music alongside the aspiring stars of tomorrow. In that regard, it was a rare combination and an instant hit. Over the past 8 years, Whiskey Jam has grown to have a huge following of artists, friends and fans, all drawn in by their honest attachment to the freshness and spark of the event. From Music Row publishing companies hosting "takeover" nights to showcase their team of talent, to Music Row record labels testing their latest artist's mettle on the seasoned crowd, you're always in for a great time.

Fletcher Rockwell, @fletcherrockwell, 2:30 - 4:30 PM
With classic Americana-tinged rock & roll steeped in the blue-collar charm of their hometown, Chicago’s Fletcher Rockwell has been building a loyal fanbase throughout the Midwest since 2009. While widely known for their original songs, the group is also revered for clever versions of the most popular cover music, spanning everything from vintage Tom Petty, Paul Simon and Talking Heads to contemporary roots revivalists Chris Stapleton, Dawes and Mumford & Sons. From humble beginnings at dive bars and late-night house parties, the band has since been featured on many of the most revered stages in Chicagoland, including House of Blues, Metro, Bub City, Fitzgerald’s, Cubby Bear and Joe’s on Weed. The band has also become a fixture at summer fests throughout the region, with appearances at Taste of Randolph, Taste of Lincoln Avenue, Retro on Roscoe, Oktoberfest Chicago, Lakeview Taco Fest, and many more.

Their EP, Taking Off, received regional mainstream country and rock radio airplay, and the band’s debut single and 360° music video, Hey ;) Is For Horses, garnered praise on Huffington Post.

Chris Ferrara and The Common Good, @cftcgband, 9:00 PM – 12:00 AM
Chris Ferrara hails from a small suburb outside of Boston, MA, and he is currently touring in support of the upcoming release of his EP, Something To Prove. Chris draws from an eclectic mix of influences – from Muscle Shoals to Motown and every stop in between – to provide a style of music that is as familiar as it is new. Backed by his seven piece band, The Common Good, his unique sound and high energy performances recently landed him a spot on Topgolf’s Who Will Rock You competition, judged by Bobby Bones and Maggie Rose, where they were the runners-up in the season finale (links below). Chris and his band have also been holding a Thursday night residency at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row on Nashville’s famed Broadway strip since January of this year. They have quickly made Whiskey Row the place to be on a Thursday night. All without label support, his single, “Social,” has accumulated over 225k streams on Spotify with 3,500+ monthly listeners. The song was also selected by theChive.com as their summer anthem, and the resulting music video has over 183,000 views on YouTube.
