Garrett "G.Love" Dutton, Jeffrey "The Houseman" Clemens and Jimmy "Jazz" Prescott are celebrating their 25th year as touring and recording artists. With over 15 records released, this pioneering band has been an influence to artists such as Jack White, Jack Johnson, The Avett Brothers, Slightly Stoopid and many more. With their signature blend of Delta Blues, Hip Hop, Funk, Rock and Roll and Jazz, The Special Sauce have literally created their own funky stew of American music. Expect a high energy mashup of funky beats and songs written from the front porch to get the world smiling and dancing to the positive message of Love and the Blues.

John Fullbright
Three years ago John Fullbright burst upon the Southwest music scene with a stellar live album recorded at the famous Blue Door in Oklahoma City. From his home in Okemah, Oklahoma, also the home of Woody Guthrie, John honed his songwriting and playing skills to such a degree that before he was out of high school he was a favorite at festival campgrounds. The past three years have seen John share the stage with Jimmy Webb, Michael Fracasso, Joe Ely, Steve Poltz and many others from Oklahoma to Europe and back.

With the release of "From The Ground Up", Oklahoma singer/songwriter John Fullbright is certain to join any conversation about the best new artists in music today. Firmly rooted in a variety of musical styles, John draws on what has come before but without imitation. Forget labels when you listen to John Fullbright. He is not folk, not Americana and not pop, but possibly the best definition of them all. Fullbright's earliest songwriting heroes, Townes Van Zandt and Mickey Newbury certainly infuse this record, but so do Jimmy Webb and Randy Newman and many of Fullbright's lesser-known songwriting friends from Oklahoma and Texas.
