Missouri has long boasted of being the home of two of America’s great artists, Mark Twain and Chuck Berry.

It wasn’t until The Rainmakers thundered into the national music spotlight in 1986, that anyone combined the guitar power of Berry with the social wit of Twain, bringing their Missouri-born version of roots rock ‘n’ roll to fans far and wide. Songs were sung, memories were made, and they lived to tell about it, thirty-two years and counting.

The Rainmakers legendary live performances have the strength and professionalism that come from years on the road and on stage, but maintain the joy and spontaneity of true believers who discover something new every time they play.


Outlaw Jim and the Whiskey Benders are a hard-hittin’ Outlaw Country band with roots in the sounds of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, as well as influences from New Orleans Fund and Southern Rock. They have traveled extensively in the Midwest and South, playing festivals, concerts, private events, as well as the beloved honky-tonks along the way. They have played The Grand Ole’ Opry Plaza Parties and famous venues on Lower Broadway in Nashville, numerous bars and festivals in New Orleans, and mountain towns in the Rocky Mountains. In their home town of Kansas City, MO, they have opened for David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, Sammy Kershaw, Aaron Tippin, John Michael Montgomery, Jason Boland and Stragglers and also play Y’allapalooza.
