With high acrobatics and excellent musical skill, Jason D. Williams performs ear-shakingly, dynamic and high energy performances night after night, and this night, he brought it to the Big Top stage.  Williams has the ability to perform songs on the piano with his body in several difficult, acrobatic-like positions, such as in a handstand, backwards, forwards, sideways, upside-down, on the ground, on his knees, with his limbs or feet, standing or lying on the piano, and standing on top of piano keys incorporating jazz, boogie woogie, country, blues, rock, rock & roll, gospel, and classical music into his performances.

Originally from Anchorage, Kentucky, an affluent suburb of Louisville, Osborne moved to New York City in the late 1980s, where she formed her own record label, Womanly Hips.  She signed with Mercury Records, and released her first full-length album, Soul Show: Live at Delta 88, in 1991. Her second (and first major label) album was Relish (1995), which became a hit on the strength of the single “One of Us” and has been performing and recording ever since!  Her album Bring It On Home was released on March 27, 2012. It is a collection of vintage blues and soul covers, and it received a 2013 Grammy Awards nomination for Best Blues Album.

Formed in Waukesha, Wisconsin in the “early Bodeans days” and following their critically acclaimed debut Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams, in January 1987, a Rolling Stone reader poll voted them Best New American Band.   10 records later and they are back performing for a second time on the Big Top stage, as tight, sharp and sing-a-long-able as ever, touring their recent 2012 release “American Made” in their one-of-a-kind, recognizable blues, country, rock and soulful way!
