Reverend Doctor is an uplifting and defiantly positive soul pop act which aims to connect people and build community through music that moves your mind and your feet.
Rooted in the likes of Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, Beatles, Gin Blossoms – Reverend Doctor’s relentlessly optimistic music tells inspirational stories and creates safe spaces for those to gather.
As a singer and guitarist, Reverend Doctor’s songwriting aims to preach and to heal through positive messages of hope and love. His music reflects his passion to build a community and engage audiences. The blending of funk, R&B, pop, and rock results in an upbeat sound that will make you dance or simply bring a smile to your face.
Filled with the restless energy of a dedicated songwriter, rich with melodic hooks, and supported by the gut level intuitive prowess of a jazz-ensemble-by-way-of-a-street-corner-folk-band, Ben Schrag & The Cautionaries are a free wheeling acoustic throwdown, channeling inquisitive indie-folk with plenty of musical punch.
Kelli Rae Powell
Kelli Rae Powell is an old-timey albeit timely cabaret-style bad girl. Regarding her wry and original tunes, she has been described as a tiny uke-toting red-headed would-be step-child of Billie Holiday and Johnny Cash. Tommy Ramone once called her a “poet” to her face. She invented the Drinkaby: a song that is part lullaby and part drinking song. Born in Nebraska and raised in Iowa, she moved to New York City after she graduated from college. Kelli Rae will play the ukulele until the end.
