River Jam Artist Preview: Josh Weathers

Josh Weathers returns to our event as a bonafide headliner and a career picking up momentum at a rapid clip. Weathers refers to his music as “Texas soul music” and it’s definitely that.  Influenced as much by George Strait as by Prince or equal parts Delbert McClinton and Otis Redding, Weathers’ music showcases threads of country, rock, soul, funk and R&B.  Weathers is a showstopping guitar slinger and singer whose signature calling card is a rabble rousing live show that gets the party started no matter what setting he’s in.  This is an act that has both sold out Billy Bob’s and performed at the Trump inauguration.  Rowdy or formal…equally adept at both. Weathers went viral with his outstanding cover of Whitney Houston/Dolly Parton and decided to take a step back to focus on his family and mission.  But, he’s back on all cylinders now…using his music to further his causes and keep people grooving. They’ll be grooving on the mainstage to close out the Saturday of River Jam and if you don’t dance during a Josh Weathers set, you may not have a pulse.

josh_grider_outdoors_final

Josh Grider has long been a Galleywinter favorite dating back to his earliest performing days in Waco.  Hand in hand with that, Grider has performed at Greenfest in various forms.  Acoustic, full band, trio, special guest…you name it.  Each time he has killed it. Each time he has brought something special.  Each time he’s left the crowd wanting more.  Grider returns to River Jam this year as part of the Lone Star Floathouse acoustic songswap jam.  The past few years have found Grider on a continual career upswing;, and scoring several hits on Texas Radio. We’re proud to have been on the bandwagon since the beginning and even more proud to have him play our event once more.
