By visiting Sundance Square establishments, these events will continue to be offered to guests for free.

Grady Spencer and the Work meld together the grit of the old-time blues with the blood-red soil of classic country to forge a well-worn hammer of modern music. This Fort Worth band promises a high energy shows that keep people thirsty, rowdy, and always ready for more.

On any given evening with Ricki Derek you can expect to hear a heavy dose of Sinatra as well as other songs from the Great American Song Book. Derek loves to showcase his seven-piece band or fifteen-piece big band at each performance.

The pop/folk trio Castro is a breath of fresh air. Self-aware but never self-conscious, fun but never trivial, Jason, Michael, and Jackie Castro’s free-range pop soars thanks to a funny little twist for a trio of siblings.

Griffin House is a rare musician who writes lyrics so vulnerable and authentic that an audience is irrevocably captured by the powerful experience of sharing his journey in life. Recording and performing for over a decade, House has toured with Ron Sexsmith, Patti Scialfa, Josh Ritter, John Mellencamp, Mat Kearney, and The Cranberries.

Jared Deck sings with the power of someone who has seen life through peril and promise. Deck’s songs illustrate life in the rural heartland and because this is the life he knows only too well, these songs ring true the honest voice of midland America.

Mainstays of the Austin, Texas music scene for nearly a decade, anthemic indie rock band The Rocketboys entertain with a feast of lush, layered sound and soaring harmonies. Their dynamic, expansive songs often have a similar sound like Coldplay.

Fort Worth’s best kept secret Latin Express bring Tejano, Salsa and Funk to the stage. This seven-piece band will get everyone up dancing.

Closing out the Bands on the Bricks fall series will be Leigh Nash, an American singer and songwriter who is the former lead vocalist for the pop band Sixpence None the Richer.
