“Ellis unleashed a torrent of dazzling musicianship pitched somewhere between the exhilarating volatility of rock and roll and the melancholic passion of urban blues.” — Los Angeles Times

“Raw and righteous, funky and strong.” — Village Voice

I’m so grateful to be a full-time, touring musician, and student for life. I never take it for granted. It’s not an easy life, but it sure is gratifying to connect with thousands of people a year through my songs and a shared passion for music. I’m proud to have released 5 original blues rock CDs to date, all with great reviews. I love what I do, and I wouldn’t trade one minute of it.

Jason Elmore & the Hoodoo Witch

5:00 pm to 6:30 pm

Based out of Dallas, TX, “Jason Elmore & Hoodoo Witch” is an original high-energy trio that blends hard-hitting rock, jump/swing blues, vintage soul/r&b, and traces of 60’s country into a unique-but-familiar sound that maintains the essence of American roots music while simultaneously offering a fresh take on its various genres and sounds. Jason Elmore is uncommonly seamless in his ability to tailor his performance to suit the venue and demographic, without compromising the integrity of the band’s mission, which is to give 110% with every single performance, whether performing for a crowd of 2 or 2,000.

Having grown up with an obsession for all genres of western music, Elmore is remarkable in his ability to appeal to fans of any type of music with his virtuoso-level guitar playing, soulful and powerful old-school vocals, and keen sense of songwriting. It is common to see an artist excel at one of those three things, but Jason is uncanny in his ability to express himself with an original and unique voice as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter. All one needs to do is watch him play live one time in order to have a good understanding of how all of these different genres of music have a common thread when it comes to eliciting an emotional response from the listener and taking them to that special place where only the music exists and the troubles of the world are temporarily put on hold.
