Colin O’Brien with Travis Burch at 4pm, Patrick Uptain at 5pm, and NICK KANE at 8pm
Colin O’Brien’s music is informed by the past and speaks to the present. A playful performer, Colin delights his audiences with fiery melodies, groovy rhythms, soulful lyrics, fancy footwork and old time hat tricks. His banjo, fiddle and guitar playing, percussive dancing, and lyrics all express an earnest regard for the traditional, natural and true.O’Brien is a nationally touring independent performer based in Nashville. He has shared bills with artists such as The Infamous String Dusters, Great American Taxi, Trampled By Turtles, Tim O’Brien, Del McCoury, Steve Martin, Sam Bush, Darol Anger and Peter Rowan.
Patrick Uptain is from Montgomery, AL, where growing up in church, he was exposed to music at an early age. He continued singing and performing in musicals at church and school through junior high and high school. After being accepted to American Music and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in New York, NY he moved to the big city and studied musical theater for two years. Over the next fourteen years, Patrick found himself primarily focused in being a part of the music scene in The Big Apple. For four years, he played keyboards, percussion, and sang back up for The Twelve (a well-established Rolling Stones-ish, blues-driven band based in Park Slope, Brooklyn). After leaving the popular Brooklyn band, Patrick found himself in the theater again writing, playing keyboards, and singing in a successful original rock musical called “Project: Ground Control”. Thus, Yellow Dog was born… the band was hand-selected to perform the music for this rock opera, based on David Bowie’s character Major Tom. Yellow Dog earned a dedicated following, and toured the tri-state area, hitting clubs all over New York and opening for bands such as Mountain. Patrick was drawn to the Music City because of his strong songwriting sensibilities, and a hunger to surround himself with talent. Currently, he works round the clock, sharpening his skills, and honing his craft, and hopes to bring his music to the ears and hearts of many.
The longtime guitarist for the Mavericks, Nick Kane was born August 21, 1954 in Jerusalem, GA; the son of an opera singer, by age 17 he was performing professionally in USO and service clubs throughout Germany. Various stints in a London glam-rock band, a German punk group and a Miami rockabilly outfit followed before Kane made his recorded debut as a member of the little-known Iko-Iko; spending the better part of the 1980s on tour across the U.S. and Europe, he eventually returned to Miami to form his own group, Nick Kane and the Cannonball Flyers, frequently crossing paths with local country phenoms the Mavericks. After a stint in Los Angeles, Kane joined the Mavericks in 1993, making his debut with the group a year later on the album What a Crying Shame; in 1999, he released his first solo effort, Songs in the Key of E.
