About the Artists:
With her powerfully sultry voice and eclectic styling, Raina Wallace cultivates a listening experience like no other. Self described as if “Dolly Parton grew up listening to The Clash” her music is as unique and dynamic as she is. Finding her roots in Northern California, but eventually making her way to Montana, Wallace is truly a voice of the old-time west.
Having previously spent the last 10 years in the Montana mountains, the singer/songwriter now calls Texas home with her dog, Willie Nelson Mandela. In addition to her blossoming solo career, she actively tours with band, The Lowdown Drifters, as their bass player.
The Kid Brothers consist of five energetic, well mannered, outgoing young men. This upcoming local pop boy band is sure to make any event more fun! They have humble hearts, tons of passion, and a connection with their audience.

“It used to be called boogie-woogie. It used to be called rhythm & blues. Now, they call it rock & roll”
Chuck Berry’s words are at the very heart of Roots Rock & Roll 5-piece, THE 40 ACRE MULE! The self-described “Rhythm & Blues Outfit” are a powerhouse of vintage revival with a reputation for seamlessly blurring the lines between country, soul and rock audiences with songwriting that borders between blues drenched heartbreak and an old school riot in the streets!
Influenced by the pillars of Rhythm & Blues like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and Ray Charles and inspired by recent artists such as J.D. McPherson, Nathaniel Rateliff and Gary Clark Jr., They quickly built their own unique sound by blending vintage Rock & Roll, Rhythm & Blues, Soul and just a touch of Country. It was a sound that soon caught on with The James Hunter Six, The Reverend Horton Heat, Eleven Hundred Springs, Alejandro Escovedo, Rosie Flores and more.
Since forming in Dallas, Texas in 2015, THE 40 ACRE MULE has built a loyal following the old-fashioned way…they earned it! Playing countless bars and packed clubs, they watched crowds grow mainly by word of mouth. Playing to diverse crowds has made their fanbase explode. “We went from 10 or 15 friends in a dive bar on a Tuesday to playing full-on festivals without even having an album out yet. That says something. I think we’re making music that people from all walks of life…country fans, soul fans, rockabilly fans…find comfortable and familiar. It’s because all those genres can trace their roots to Rhythm & Blues, the very backbone of Rock & Roll “, says founder J. Isaiah Evans
After years of putting in the work and following a critically acclaimed debut album, GOODNIGHT & GOOD LUCK (State Fair Records, 2019), THE 40 ACRE MULE have appeared as Official Showcasing Artist at SXSW as well as AmericanFest in Nashville. Having toured with Charlie Crockett, Old 97s and The Delta Bombers, THE ACRE MULE continues to hit the road, deliver their brand of Third Coast Rock & Roll coast to coast!
