9:00 PM Breaking Tradition - A young, up and coming, brother /sister, country band from north east Indiana, inspired by country and southern rock music. The band has a strong emphasis on vocals with two and three part harmonies. They rock everything from classic tunes to the latest hits with a few surprises in between.
