Last year’s addition of a sidestage that provided live music during set breaks/changes was one of the most positive feedback generating moves we’ve ever adpoted at GF.  When we began planning this year’s edition, we knew just the right band for the occasion.  Texas Renegade are scene veterans with a catalog of fantastic songs and a wealth of musicality to entertain in just such a setting.  These guys have been hitting the highways for well over a decade and have graced some of the best stages in the region.  We are ecstatic to have them in the Greenfest fold for 2016.  You’re going to dig their well-rounded styles as they play on the side stage.  Looking forward to seeing what they bring!

Erick Willis comes to us in the tradition of the soulful singer/songwriters that have resonated with fans across the state the past few years such as Sean McConnell and Josh Weathers.  Erick’s sound is drawing rave reviews and well-deserved attention from a growing legion of supporters, and with good reason.  His smooth style sets him apart from the crowded field of new artists trying to make their marks.  Erick has made his mark by being true to himself, writing songs that capture a particular emotion and then delivering them with unrivaled passion.  At GF16, you’ll see what the buzz is about.
