8pm – April Anne has been writing music and poetry since she could put a pen to paper. Her lyrics always come from a place that she knows, her life. She has lived major ups and downs and all are reflected in her music. When she is in love she writes songs that could melt any man's heart, but when she's been hurt she writes lyrics that touch many deeply. She admits she has made many mistakes, but if given the opportunity wouldn't change a thing from her past, for they all made her who she is today.
9:20pm – Karmann and Kompany is an award winning band led by singer/songwriter Karmann Powell. Members include Joe Brokaw, 5-string bass, Joe Stolpa on electric and acoustic lead guitar. Their sound is clean and clear, featuring powerful vocals and a warm, personable stage presence. Drummer/percussionist Darrell Stackhouse plays with the band on special occasions. Song selections range from folk, country, gospel, bluegrass, contemporary, blues and originals - or what ever strikes the band's fancy.
Based in central Arizona, Karmann Powell has performed solo throughout the state for many years. In the past, the composition of Karmann and Kompany has been fluid. John "Whiteboy" Walden, harmonica player extraordinaire, is a Karmann and Kompany member at large. A world traveler, he always has a place in the band when he makes it back to the states. Drummer, Jeff Wright, played with us on several occasions. Don Hootman played lead guitar for about a year and a half. Former member Mike Weatherford, lead guitar also appears in some of their videos.
