Drawing from diverse musical influences ranging from punk rock, to country, to folk, to blues, to good old fashioned hell raising barroom rock, Spitshiner is bare-knuckle acoustic rock and roll.

Secondly..

Dave Wells’ acoustic project has the energy of classic punk rock, carried out through catchy choruses, replacing gang vocals with the harmonies of an alt-country band. Accompanied by Matt Charette on Accordian, Mandolin, Harmonica, Guitar, and Vocals, the duo are not afraid to fill a room with sound and emotion.

Booths continue to sell fast, so artists and vendors, make sure you reserve yours ASAP.
