$10 COVER CHARGE IS BUILT INTO DINNER BILL


Josh Murtha writes simple, honest, lyric-forward songs full of heartache, humor, and hope.


Josh Lava is a musical chameleon who has amassed an impressive and eclectic body of work as a multi-instrumentalist, producer/engineer, composer, and songwriter across the genre spectrum. Whether he's composing for full orchestra, performing live with a jazz trio, or producing an electronic dance track, Josh is musically at home pretty much anywhere.


Singer/songwriter/guitarist Cameron Foreman synthesizes American Folk traditions with a soul-laden, genre-bending amalgamation of original, modern Americana music. His soulful voice and winding fingerstyle guitar provide the ideal vehicle for his gut-punching and, often, hopelessly optimistic words. After working as one of several songwriters within a band, Foreman found himself artistically under-fulfilled and over encumbered with songs in need of an outlet. In early 2016, Foreman and Co. set into motion sessions that would become his debut EP. On 2016’s debut EP, Killing Spree, Foreman and his cohorts employed a neo-traditional Country/ Folk sound and refined lyrical sensibility to soulfully conjure the raw-nerve pain of love, loss, and loneliness. A full length LP is in the works and will see light in early 2019
