Country music hitmaker Phil Vassar is a piano-pounding powerhouse on stage who taps into his audiences via social media for song requests throughout his more than 135 shows a year. Phil’s reign of signature songs include 10 No. 1 singles and 26 Top 40 hits, including Carlene, Just Another Day in Paradise, Six-Pack Summer, When I Love You; and many more. Vassar was racking up hits on the radio long before he even began his own recording career that has seen the release of six albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, ACM’s Top New Male Vocalist and sold-out shows across the country. Vassar’s songwriting career blossomed in the mid- ’90s when he landed a publishing contract with EMI and penned hits for Collin Raye (Little Red Rodeo), Alan Jackson (Right on the Money), Tim McGraw (For a Little While), Jo Dee Messina (Bye Bye, Alright), and Blackhawk (Postmarked Birmingham). He signed a record deal of his own with Arista in 1998 and was named ASCAP’s Country Songwriter of the Year in 1999. Vassar continues to churn out incisive, soulful lyrics and infectious melodies that capture the heart and soul in the unique and special way that only he can.


Martin and Kelly

The incredibly talented duo consisting of Jilly Martin and Ryan Brooks Kelly have become the next must-see act from New England to Nashville. Over the years, they’ve been featured as support acts for Brad Paisley, The Band Perry, Keith Urban, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Justin Moore, Jana Kramer and Sara Evans.

Standouts in today’s crossover country music scene, Jilly & Ryan’s songs bridge the boundary between traditional and new country.Martin has the ability to deliver a story with complete honesty, whether it’s a gentle vocal or soaring. Kelly’s guitar skills are skillful, and their harmonies blend seamlessly. All of this, and charm… makes Martin and Kelly a must-see duo!

Some Highlight Performances in the past two years:

•   2017: Performed main stage at the SOLD OUT Country 102.5 Street Party with Kip Moore, Chris Janson, and A Thousand Horses

•   Opened Main stage for Dwight Yoakam and Alabama at the Bank of NH Pavilion

•   2018: Opened for Phil Vassar, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Montgomery Gentry       

•   Invited to join the Oak Ridge Boys on Stage to perform “Bobby Sue”

Jilly and Ryan’s decision to join their musical talents and musical influences was the right one, no doubt. They compliment each other on stage, and in person. There’s just the right amount of humble and swagger, of know-how and a desire to know more… in their music and performances. This partnership has resulted in Martin and Kelly being one of the country’s most sought-after country acts.
