This will be a special all seated "in the round" format show featuring music from David G. Smith, Alicia Michilli, and Shannon LaBrie. This will be a more intimate setting where artists will take turns sharing songs and stories.

David G Smith
Singer/Writer David G Smith brings a solo show that features ‘vocals-with-soul’ and guitar playing styles to include some blues-y slide on a resonator (ala Robert Johnson, Little Walter), up-tempo open-tuning instrumentals on acoustic (ala Duane Allman and Tommy Emmanuel) and 'dirt funk' to intimate material on a composite acoustic guitar. Given his 20+ year Nashville history, there is a strong songwriter component with an emphasis on story songs and meaningful lyric. He has released several albums that feature appearances by celebrated bluesman Keb Mo, recent Grammy nom, Mary Gauthier (go-shay) and America's Got Talent semifinalist and Taj/Mo Tour super vocalist, Alicia Michilli. David's recent album First Love was accepted for Grammy consideration for “Best Folk Album”. First Love also landed a #1 position on both the Roots Music Iowa Album and Alternative Folk charts and also made RMR's "Best Of 2018" list. His songs have been featured on Fox TV, Lifetime Network and the Travel Channel. David performed for 5000 Eagle Scouts in an arena event at MSU/MI and his song “Made For You” was First Place winner for the 2008 International Song Competition/Country Category. He donates time and money to local causes across the US to include his two favorites, St. Jude Children's Hospital and Boys Town. The late Blue Miller (Bob Seger/India Arie) has produced his last 2 studio releases as well as David’s upcoming 2019 7th release Who Cares. It features a duet with Gauthier.
“David G Smith is a major find....[and] 'First Love' is a minor masterpiece” --Robert Oermann/Music Row Mag
Alicia Michilli
Alicia Michilli is an R&B/Soul artist from Detroit, Michigan. Most widely recognized as a semi finalist on the national television show, AMERICA’S GOT TALENT, this Nashville transplant was raised on the sounds of Motown. Detroit’s influence on her soulful, powerful vocals have gained Alicia the support, and admiration of many fellow musicians and songwriters. Their support has lead her to performing alongside artists Nelly and Kehlani at Nick Cannon Rocks Times Square benefitting St. Mary's Children's Hospital, and opening for Andra Day on her Cheers to the Fall, tour. Alicia most recently had the honor of opening and singing background vocals for, TajMo, the GRAMMY award winning duo Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’.  Her latest single "Crazy" can be found on iTunes, Spotify, and CD Baby - along with her self-titled EP. Her sophomore EP “Letters from the Edge” Is now available on all music streaming platforms. 
Shannon LaBrie
The Lincoln, NE native instantly became a favorite among music fans and critics alike with her powerful 2016 album War & Peace. With lead singles, "Alcohol," and "It's Political" the independent release reached inside the Top Ten on iTunes, Spotify's US viral chart and Triple A Radio charts.
Tracked live at Nashville’s House of Blues Studio, War & Peace is an emotionally-charged collection of deep Americana soul that gives voice to the love and loss LaBrie experienced throughout her life. 
"She's part Tom Petty, part folk goddess, with Dylanesque lyrics.” 
“Her songs unfold with style and subtlety, coasting over the albums lush arrangements via LaBrie's gorgeous voice. It's as if Jeff Buckley and Norah Jones started a band that went a tiny bit country.” 
-Rolling Stone 
LaBrie, has toured with ZZ Ward, Valerie June, Billy Bob Thornton, Rayland Baxter, Robert Randlolph, Gabe Dixon, Sam Lewis and Shakey Graves. Add to her resume over 12 million streams and several album cuts along with “She’s Got Soul,” on Robert Randolphs Grammy nominated album “Got Soul.” She is currently recording her upcoming album in Nashville, TN set to release Fall of 2019.
