Gary Joe Wade's musical career spans over four decades during which he has entertained thousands of fans with his talents as a singer, composer, and guitarist. His musician father taught him to sing and play almost from infancy. Wade formed the Wade Brothers Band with his younger siblings. The band became a fixture on the Reno music scene during the seventies and eighties, playing nightclubs, casino cabarets, as well as touring throughout the West. Later he joined The Lelands, one of the longest running and most popular groups on the Nevada entertainment circuit. Today, Wade shares his mastery of musical styles from blues to rock and folk to country with audiences everywhere. In the Rogue Valley, Wade can be heard performing with the country bands Southern Pride and Diamonds and Denim, as well as the jazz trio Lineage, which features Wade, his son and his grandson.

Wade opened for Credence Clearwater at Britt Festivals as the Wade Brothers Band. While in Reno, his band opened for: Charlie Musslewhite, Elvin Bishop, Norton Buffalo, Little Charlie and the Night Cats, Roy Rogers... to name a few...



Chuck Yates, a native of Texas, played as a solo act and in bands in the North Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico region during the late 60's and 70's. He moved to Southern Oregon in 1992 where he's played in a variety of musical genres, as well as studio work. Master on the guitar, bass, mandolin, and harmonica, his current favorite is the tenor guitar. A perennial performer at the Blues Festival since its second year, Chuck is often asked to sit in with local groups in the Valley's venues.


Mark & Cindy DeGroft have been playing music together for 30 plus years. An interesting journey of styles & influences has culminated in a recent recording project of original material. Their music has roots in rock, folk, blues, classical & Americana and is uniquely their own. Mark is one of the boys to talk Guitar with if you’re shopping Cripple Creek Music in Ashland; Cindy is a volunteer host for Jefferson Public Radio’s Folk Show on Sunday nights. They are two halves of the same tune.
