Music Lineup

Robbin Kapsalis and Vintage #18 | 3-5 PM

Hard-driving blues rhythms and soul grooves fuel the blistering performance of D.C.-based soul blues band Robbin Kapsalis and Vintage#18.

Performing together since 2013, the band sharpened their sound and performance chops in clubs throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia.  The band’s live performances generated quite the buzz throughout the Southeast and into their first recording sessions in 2016.

In 2017, Vintage #18 released their debut album Grit.  The album reflects the band’s love of classic 60’s Soul and Blues, featuring a mix of originals as well as two covers (ZZ Top and Bob Dylan).

Unknown Artist Band | 5-7 PM

Unknown Artist Band is a unique and energetic rock/pop band that performs amazing covers of your favorite hits from the 70’s, 80’s and today.

Unknown Artist came together in May of 2018 by way of Karl Gunther Studios in Huntersville, NC. Immediately, things clicked like they’ve since been playing together for years. Savannah Mae Trautman (lead vocals, guitar, keys, bass), Matthew Coleman (lead guitar, vocals, keys), Kylie Johnson (lead bass, vocals, keys), and Cady Gardiner-Parks (drums) are the original members. In May 2019, Josh Fadok joined the band on drums.

All the members are multi-talented artists and occasionally interchange vocals and instruments throughout their sets. Their passion for music and diverse set list is refreshing to all ages.  Whether you want to hear Led Zeppelin or Greta Van Fleet, Journey or Paramore, Bon Jovi or Pink, Unknown Artist Band will deliver.

Jennifer Hartswick and Nick Cassarino | 7-9 PM

Jennifer Hartswick is best know for her work as trumpet player and vocalist with the Trey Anastasio Band (TAB) but her duo project with Nth Power founder, guitarist, and singer Nick Cassarino is equally as impressive.

Back at Heist for the third time in as many years, the Hartswick & Cassarino duo will run through original songs by each artist along with a bevy of classic covers.

Jen and Nick have been playing, writing, laughing, and storytelling for almost two decades. Born and raised in Vermont, their bond is ever present in this intimate acoustic duo. Hartswick and Cassarino have each made names for themselves, touring tirelessly. Their passion, dedication and sophistication are evident in their joyous, soulful performances, providing audiences with a truly special musical experience.

Heather Gillis Band | 9 PM – 12

Heather Gillis is the total package as a guitar player, lap steel player, singer, songwriter, and arranger.

She and her band have the stage presence and confidence that appeal to a variety of musical tastes be it rock, blues, soul, jazz, roots or gospel. At 22 years old, Heather has not only formed a strong southeastern following but has played alongside and befriended the likes of The Allman Brothers Band, Col Bruce Hampton, North Mississippi All-Stars and Damon Fowler just to name a few.

After her work with the Butch Trucks and the Freight Train Band in 2017, Heather relocated from the Tampa area to Atlanta, put together an all new band and hasn’t looked back since.
