Custom Made Bluegrass – 1:00pm on the Main Stage – A bluegrass band based in central Kentucky we travel across the country playing traditional bluegrass with a twist. This custom made style of bluegrass has generated the comment “I did not think I liked bluegrass until I heard you guys” on many occasions. Custom Made Bluegrass website.

The Mojos – 3:00pm on the Main Stage – After trying several names, we decided it would be simple and perhaps effective to use part of the Mojo Filter Kings name. After all, three of us used to be in that band, and we thought some people who used to go see us then might want to come and see this new band. The Mojos on ReverbNation.
