Adam Hood returns to Galleywinter River Jam and will be making his 9th festival appearance in 2022.   Way back in 2005, we booked Adam into an acoustic songswap as part of Greenfest when very few people were familiar with him.  Adam came down with laryngitis the day of the show but fought his way through 3 songs.  Two years later, he joined us at the Antone’s Greenfest in 2007.  Followed by the Momo’s Greenfest in 2009.  Then of course, he headlined three years in a row with his full band set-up.  In 2014, he even helped us take it

River Jam Artist Preview: Nate Rodriguez

Nate Rodriguez is one of the most talented individuals we’ve ever showcased.  His voice is rich in soul, power and range.  The original songs he writes are slices of the Victoria, TX upbringing he endured.  Playing sideman as a lead guitarist and drummer has helped Rodriguez hone his skills and sharpen his artistic focus.  He’s the glue of this event and left as the talk of the festival a few times.  He epitomizes our Galleywinter focus of bringing new music to your ears.  Rodriguez is too good to be as underappreciated as he is.
