Performances by:


Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms punk and classic rock thrown at them. But more than anything, Cracker are survivors. Co-founders David Lowery and Johnny Hickman have been at it for more than a quarter of a century, amassing ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances and hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe (“Low”, “Teen Angst”, “Euro-Trash Girl” and “Get Off This,” to name just a few).

Nine DaysNine Days

Nine Days, formed by singer-songwriter friends John Hampson and Brian Desveaux in 1994, struck a chord with fans and critics with the relentlessly catchy “Absolutely (Story of a Girl).” The memorable single, which takes Gen Xers back to another time and place, hit the top of the charts in 2000 and propelled the band’s major label debut, The Madding Crowd, to go gold. After a decade-long break, the band re-emerged on the scene in 2015 and has been re-engaging old fans and gaining new ones ever since.
