Heading up the bill is the well-loved Bay Area band, Mother Hips, ready to jam out on our main stages both nights. Before "Hamilton" there was the Q Brothers swapping iambic pentameter for 90's infused hip-hop and their unique take on The Bard (coming from sold out shows at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre). The Main Squeeze promises to keep you moving late into the night with their infectious, feel-good musical gumbo, and the "Best of the Bay" Bayonics serve up an afternoon of reggae latin fusion at our poolside stage. Caleb Hawley's soulful grooves will be flying in from NYC and joining the up-and-coming Eugene Marie for their debut record release. The Lair's own Radio Nowhere, the missing link between Lyle Lovett and Led Zeppelin, serenades us about Spanish conquistadors and hostage crises while Kevin So, Risa Binder, and Menna arrive from Nashville to deliver us some classic (and not so classic) southern sounds. If that's not variety enough, be sure to rock your night with Eric Stuart Band and folk your morn with Middlesleep. And of course, add in the incredible cello theatrics of Tornado Rider, and Bear Music Fest is going to be a weekend of dancing and mountain air that you won't forget!
