Clint & The Cosmic Wake
C&TCW is a stellar Rock/Blues band with an eclectic influence spanning from gospel to metal. We pull our threads from all corners of the music world. Clint Echols (vocals, guitar) started playing professionally the day after high school graduation. He started with country, moved swiftly through rock/hard rock, metal, and even dabbled in top 40. Gregg McDonald (drums) started 40 years ago playing live in his father’s country band and in between sermons at Church. Dan Giddens (bass) was heavily influenced by his mother's passion for the Blues, and spent his time playing bass in metal bands for nearly a decade before joining the crew. Austin Echols (guitar/vocals) returned from Hawaii after completing his service in the Army and immediately began to fine tune his celestial licks and contribute to the project. Our blend of sound melds SRV with Pink Floyd and even taps into a little Pantera and Pearl Jam. ZZ Top, Marcus King, & Chris Stapleton are all undeniable influences as well.
Singer/Songwriter & Storyteller Sharon Blu Walker, better known as ‘Cadillac Blu’, comes onto the musical landscape showcasing her original American Roots sound born from influences in classic country and 70’s folk. Newly recorded work brings her to the East Texas stage with an eclectic blend of song and verse. Interludes with the audience and fellow musicians become part of her performance charm. Blu brings a history of music from the Midwest through the Rockies, and finally back into her family roots in East Texas.
Red Feather Tribe
Also known as sludgegrass, Red Feather Tribe is a folk blend of psychadelic, funkabilly, bluegrass and soul born out of the backwoods of Texas. Having toured most of the country playing music after having served in the US Marines, front man Caleb Boles leads the charge at the mic with his thunderous bone chilling, and hair raising voice. The combination of him, and John Creighton is an expolsive mix of in your face funky soul, nitty grity, and sometimes downright dirty bluegrass.

Performing original music at venues from festivals to private parties, The Kirbys are happy to perform at most any kind of event, and enjoy performing at their home venue in what used to be a historic church building - the Big Sandy Music Hall, in Big Sandy, TX.

Hi… my name is Nathan Vazquez. I am 23 and grew up in Tyler, Texas. I have been playing guitar for about 10 years. I was first inspired by my parents who sang and performed in weddings and at church. I quickly fell in love with music and taught myself to play guitar and write my own songs. I started playing shows about 2 years ago because of a last minute cancel and have been performing ever since! You can find me @nathanvazquezmusic on pretty much all social media, or right here at Rooster Fest!!
Music is my passion, and with God I look forward to working hard, dreaming big, and shining all the way there!
