Jesse Rhodes
Jesse Rhodes
Jesse is a former Warner Brothers recording artist, a singer/songwriter with a wide variety of musical styles, from rock to blues to pop to reggae and deep acoustic songs. The music comes straight from the heart and is aimed directly at the heart. A rare performance with a full band, this promises to be a special night!
Jamey Geston
Jamey Geston
An independent musician from Santa Barbara, CA, Jamey Geston is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, (vocals, guitar, bass, piano, ukulele) and visual artist. At ten she started playing guitar, then self-taught piano, ukulele, and bass; at eleven she begin songwriting. Jamey sees her music coinciding with art, using her designs to create merchandise as well as album art.

The renowned area creator, one of our region’s most promising young performers, with her dark twist of earnest lyrics, haunting melodies and harmonies; Jamey represents a new generation of songwriters. Unlike many of today’s most interesting recording artists, her music can’t be easily categorized, she delivers her own blend of acoustic & electric sounds that create a dreamy, vintage feel with smart nods of current folk-pop that can easily throw you back to the sixties.

Compared to artists like Angel Olsen and a "young” Joni Mitchell, she likes writing songs and making music that paints a picture which can send a message in unconventional ways. No stranger to the stage, she has opened for some amazing artists such as; Judy Collins, Peter Frampton, Albert Lee, Jeff Bridges, Melanie Safka, Crystal Bowersox, Will Champlin, Y La Bamba, and HAIM.

Jamey performs regularly as a solo artist, touring widely regionally playing from coffee houses & restaurants to top music venues and festivals. She has made stops in Colorado at The Walnut Room, D’Notes, and Jives; in Louisiana at Bears on Fairfield, The Red River Revel, and Rhino Coffee; in Minnesota at The Garage and The Acadia Cafe; in North Dakota at Proof Artisan Distillers; and in California at Noise Pop Festival (as a guest bassist for the band Dante Elephante), California Avocado Festival, Old Spanish Days, Santa Barbara Earth Day, The NAMM Show (’13-’16), Cold Spring Tavern, The Deer Lodge, SOhO Music Venue, The Lobero Theater, The Canyon Club, The Roxy, Whiskey A Go-Go, and The Mint and more.

In January 2017 she released her first single, "Malibu" and received favorable reviews. Enthusiastic about her first release, she has moved on and currently recording her first studio EP. She plans to release her second single in May 2018, before finishing her EP later this year.
Joe B. Dewitt
Joe (Lumpy) DeWitt has been performing as vocalist and playing Wide Mouth Bass for Captain Cardiac and the Coronaries since 1976. In the early 1980’s, he was a member of The Loyal Defense Workers: four engineers working in the Aerospace Industry, where they wrote songs about the military industrial complex, spies, engineers, nuclear missiles, high technology, the nature of man, and in Joe’s case, alien abductions! When not with Cardiac, he plays 12 string guitars and writes songs in the folk-rock and protest tradition of the 1960’s. His current passion is getting out the vote in 2018. To that end, the proceeds he personally receives at the Singer-Songwriter Showcase night will be sent to VOTE.ORG for increasing voter turnout in November 2018.
