TONIGHT’S CONCERT FEATURES THE O’S

“Since forming in 2008, Taylor Young & John Pedigo, aka The O’s, have done just about everything an up-and-coming act can do. They’ve toured throughout the United States, they took off for Europe, played every festival that would have them and had their music pop up on various TV shows. Odds are that if you saw any large indie-Americana act in the last few years, you saw The O’s stealing the show as openers” – Dallas Observer, 2013

The O’s combine Americana and indie pop with alternative country sounds to create a large indie-Americana act – making good music for good people. Similar artists/sounds like: Gram Parsons, The Avett Brothers, The Ramones, The Who.
