Charo brings her charm to the Wolf Den stage on Friday, January 15th, R&B favorites The Family Stone will perform live on Saturday, January 23rd and Country sensation Chuck Wicks will be gracing the Wolf Den stage on Friday, January 29th.  Wednesday and Thursday Wolf Den shows are at 8:00pm.  Friday and Saturday Wolf Den shows begin at 9:00pm and Sunday shows are at 7:00pm unless otherwise noted.   Admission is free, but all patrons must be 21 or over.
Little Anthony & The Imperials is an R&B Doo-Wop group from New York. Throughout the years, the group has released hit singles such as “Tears On My Pillow” and “So Much.” The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April of 2009.
LoCash Cowboys have invaded the music scene with their hot, hybrid, musical style that is one part Country and one part Rock-n-Roll with a dash of Hip-Hop.  Singing two-part harmony to musically-educated audiences, LoCash electrifies fans with their upbeat brand of music. A Country music fan has not experienced LoCash Cowboys, however, until they have seen the complete show, one that has left established artists and industry executives searching for their dropped jaws and popped eardrums.
The Lost Trailers made their debut at a Fourth of July concert hosted by Country superstar Willie Nelson. Their fifth album, Holler Back, was released in August 2008 and produced a Top Ten Country hit in its title track and a Top 20 in “How ‘Bout You Don’t.”
Little Feat is very possibly the last-man-standing example of what used to be the norm in American music, a fusion of a broad span of styles and genres into something utterly distinctive. Feat took California Rock, Funk, Folk, Jazz, Country, Rockabilly and New Orleans Swamp Boogie and more, stirred it into a rich gumbo, and has been leading people in joyful dance ever since.
Charo is a household name. Instantly recognizable for her witty humor, loveable accent and her mastery of the flamenco guitar, it is Charo’s trademark expression: “Cuchi-Cuchi,” which has endeared her to the world and made the name Charo synonymous with fun and excitement.
The Family Stone original founding members Jerry Martini and Cynthia Robinson are Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees and R&B Pioneer Award winners.  Jerry Martini is the original founder of Sly & the Family Stone; calling upon Sly Stone to become the leader of the first inter-racial, multi-gender major American band. He has also performed with countless luminaries including Mike Bloomfield, Carlos Santana, Rolling Stone Bill Wymann, Robert Cray, Willie Lomax, Prince, Graham Central Station and Van Morrison.  More recently, he has been seen on the 2006 Grammy Awards with a cast of all stars in their tribute to Sly & The Family Stone.  Cynthia Robinson, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, is back on the throne! Cynthia, along with Sly, was part of Sly and The Stoners in 1966. Through her years with Sly & The Family Stone, she was notable for being an early, black, female trumpet player in a major American band. In recent years, you would have found her on many stages throughout the U.S. and Europe, playing with P-Funk maestro George Clinton, Larry Graham and Prince, to name a few.
Chuck Wicks has taken the Country format by storm with his Top 5 debut single, “Stealing Cinderella,” and his Top 15 follow-up hit, “All I Ever Wanted.” He recently earned a whole new audience of fans as a celebrity contestant on the ABC mega-hit Dancing with the Stars.
