Sue Palmer
Music - Jazz, Blues, Rythm and Blues, Swing, Boogie Woogie
San Diego' s Queen of Boogie Woogie, Sue Palmer has amazed audiences all over the world with her unique style and phenomenal left hand. She delights in creating an atmosphere reminiscent of the small clubs and cafés of 1932 Paris, Harlem and West Texas. Mme Palmer is no stranger to the spotlight. For five years, Sue was the musical partner of blues diva and recording artist Candye Kane. They toured France and most of Europe, including Scandinavia, Greece, and Turkey. Their travels also took them to Reunion Island, Canada, Australia, and all over the U.S. Under the moniker Sue "Beehive" Palmer with Candye Kane and the Swingin' Armadillos, she appeared on the Penn & Teller Show and the Roseanne show, where Sue acted as the talk show band leader (1999). Sue's instrumental composition Beehive was featured on Kane's Diva La Grande CD, and Sue and Candye co-wrote the title tune on Kane's most recent CD Swango. Sue is a featured artist on all four of Kane's CDs, under the Antone's and Sire labels. Equally at home with 12 bar blues, boogie woogie, swing, jazz or country, Sue is a successful band leader in her own right. She fronted her own swing band Tobacco Road for twelve years and produced and played on four independently released CD's. The recordings featured bassist, vocalist and arranger Preston Coleman who was an indispensable player in the Chicago and New York jazz scenes of the '30s and '40s. This wildly popular vintage swing band was the recipient of the prestigious San Diego Music Awards seven times between 1986-1994. In addition, Sue has appeared onstage, and/or recorded with Lou Ann Barton, Sue Foley, Teddy Morgan, Lavelle White, Kim Wilson, Marcia Ball, Toni Price, The Paladins, Roy Gaines, Rosie Flores, Big Sandy and the FlyRite Boys, Dave Alvin, Cesar Rosas (Los Lobos), Earl Thomas, Lea Delaria, and Pussy Tourette.

Kristie Stremel
Music - Rock
Kristie grew up in Hays, Kansas, a small town in Kansas's western flatlands, just off I-70 at Exit 159. As a child, she played and sang along with her guitar-playing father.  At 12, she got her first electric guitar and began playing songs off of the radio and from her families' record collections.  At 21, she joined the Warrensburg, Missouri band Frogpond, playing rhythm guitar and singing backing vocals. In the spring of 1997, she left Frogpond and formed her own band, Exit 159, releasing a remarkable 7-song EP before the end of the year. With an outlet for her prolific songwriting, Stremel worked fast, in early 1998, releasing a 12-song LP.  The band won the Kansas City/Lawrence area regional music award, the Klammie, two years in a row. Exit 159 continuously built on a strong following, packing the toughest Kansas City houses and touring the West Coast twice. In the fall of '99, the now-4-piece band, featuring three songwriters with individual ambitions, folded, and Kristie went straight back into the studio to record as a solo artist.  Stremel chose to emphasize an understated approach to this music, because she wants listeners to "hear the songs as they were written: acoustically."  The control exhibited in this new music is a sign of the maturity of an exceptionally-talented artist, and it offers listeners a glimpse of the versatility and subtlety of Stremel's voice, which draws on both her country roots and her  rock background to offer an unusually soulful, personal sound. Kristie Stremel's new work is the most intimate offering yet from a rocker with something to say, the ability to speak to and for her audience and the talent to make that experience transcendent.
