Bad Assets is creative and tons of fun, something we all need a bit more of in our lives. Enjoy their music on myspace. 

Sweet Home continues the fun and music on Saturday, May 31st. They deliver a combination of  Rock-Folk-Pop and Americana Saturday night beginning at 9 pm.

Original songs offer vocal harmonies that weave stories of love, heartbreak, and the ups and downs of life. With guitar riffs and mandolin accents, Sweet Home creates a unique sound.

“The process of creating and performing together helps us define who we are. Our mission is to create a common dream through music that reflects the world we want to live in,” says Sweet Home.
