Live performances by:

Harlan Jefferson – Legendary, awardwinning soul saxophonist Harlan Jefferson has blessed many stages within the last decade. He wears multiple hats within the entertainment field, and he's the director of Live At Levings Talent Show and Concerts.

Sir Charles Jones – The self-titled first album by Southern blues artist Sir Charles Jones was released in 2000. A review in Living Blues magazine praised Jones' vocals and stated, "For a largely-programmed effort, this disk percolates with sensuality and emotional heat." Jones' next album, Love Machine, spent 57 weeks on the U.S. Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, where it peaked at number 28 in June 2002. Living Blues credited the ballad "Is There Anybody Lonely?" for increasing the attention on Jones by soul and blues radio. The magazine added, "His success bodes well for the future of soul/blues as viable contemporary music."
