The Justin Myles ExperienceSATURDAY

12:00 ~ 3:00 MUSIC: The Justin Myles Experience

A native of Mechanicsville, MD, Myles spent his childhood surrounded by music, dance and most importantly rhythm. Tapping since the age of 3, taught by his mom & dance instructor Gracie, he graduated from Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA, with a BA degree in Dance, majoring in Ballet and Jazz. He recently spent 5 years touring with the International percussion sensation STOMP traveling the US, Canada and Brazil. Justin now continues to write and produce his own music some describe as Acoustical Rock with an R&B Funk style. His album entitled, " This Genre," has sold many copies across the US and is available now on Itunes. Currently he teaches dance classes locally in Hollywood, Maryland at his mother’s dance studio Gracie's Guys & Gals, travels internationally to conduct dance and body percussion workshops as well as setting choreography across the nation with an up and coming dance/composition company, The JAM project!

The John Luskey Band3:00 ~ 6:00 MUSIC: The John Luskey Band

John Luskey, a Southern Maryland native, grew up listening to his family’s extensive record collection. By the age of 13, he had learned enough guitar to join his first band and write his first song. His first show was in front of just a handful of people. By the time he was 18, he had made a name for himself in Southern Maryland and the surrounding areas. After playing music for over 20 years, John finally found two guys that shared his passion for performing live music; Jack Bannister (Bass) and Dwayne Taylor (Drums). Their straight-ahead, good-time music has become a staple in the DC, MD, and VA music scene and the trio has performed with Kenny Chesney, Brooks-n-Dunn, Rascal Flatts, and Toby Keith, just to name a few. John and his band were the first unsigned band to ever play WMZQ Fest. He has received awards from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for "Honky Tonk Rhythm" and from Billboard Magazine for "When She Cries" and "King Of The World".
