2018 Music

The TASTE Committee is currently in the process of selecting music for the 2018 TASTE of Montgomery County. We have signed contracts for two bands and will be making an announcement when our entire lineup is confirmed.

View details of our 2017 musical lineup below.

Flannel Jane

Flannel Jane fully immerses listeners in a nostalgic experience, with a song list comprised of some of the most fun and energetic rock songs from the early to late 90s. Whether you are the 30 something reliving college days or the now 20-year-old reminiscing childhood memories, Flannel Jane will provide you with the soundtrack of some of your favorite rock songs of the 90s. Flannel Jane brings together 5 local music veterans from the greater Indianapolis area, with an impressive collection of touring/ recording accolades that include: 6 UK tours, a 2014 Asian Tour opening for Chris Daughtry, a BBC Abbey Road Recording Session/Appearance, Record Deal, and the list goes on.

Jason Wells Band

Sound Edge Records artist, Jason Wells, has become one of the most sought after blues and rock guitarists in the Midwest. His unique sound and entertaining live performance is a show you won’t forget. Jason and his band are constantly touring and gaining fans everywhere they play.

Jason has shared the stage with Candlebox, Jimmie Van Zant, The Kentucky Headhunters, Jackyl, and Tantric. He has played the side stage at Klipsch Music Center in Indianapolis before the Keith Urban show and played on the same stage for Earth, Wind, and Fire/Chicago. Jason has national endorsements with InTune Guitar Picks, SIT Strings and Lucid Audio Project. You can hear Jason’s music on many FM commercial stations throughout the midwest and also college and internet radio. 

Steve Trent and Smalltown

Steve Trent and Small Town was one of the hottest midwest country acts that played many venues and events while promoting their CD The Long Road. They opened for such artists as Tracy Lawrence, Jake Owen, and Neal McCoy, and played Nashville’s hottest clubs. But most of all they enjoyed playing for the record-breaking hometown crowds at local festivals and fish fries.

Small Town members include Chris Livesay, Tony Hamm, Susan Anderson, Klint Brown, and new members Andy Vaughn, Jason Cox, and Gary Higgins.
