About Clarence Tilton
Out on the left edge of what most of us call the Midwest, Clarence Tilton is chasing a sound that lives somewhere down a long exit ramp. It’s undoubtedly near the intersection of country and heartland rock & roll, but you won’t catch this band patronizing the same old cliché-filled barrooms lining that blacktop. The band formed in Omaha in 2014, and released their second full length album, Start Already Lost in August 2019. Their energetic live performances demonstrate a respect for the classics and a taste for authentic songwriting, earning them the right to share stages with the likes of Marty Stuart, Cracker, TV on the Radio, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Greg Brown, Big Head Todd and the Monsters and an opening slot at the MAHA festival in 2018.

About Pony Creek
Pony Creek, a musical collaboration between Ryan Osbahr and Billie Frost, was formed in the spring of 2016. Hailing from the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro, the name “Pony Creek” is derived from a small creek by the same name that runs between the duo’s homes.
In May of 2016, along with a full band consisting of Eric Nelson (guitar), Travis Goddard (guitar, banjo, mandolin), George Cooper (bass), and Tim Blair (drums), Pony Creek released their debut album Easy Way Out to critical acclaim in the Midwest. The album was nominated for “Album of the Year” by the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards and Pony Creek was nominated for “Best Country” artist by the same institution in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. For the past two summers, Pony Creek have become regulars in the Okoboji, Iowa music scene, consistently performing in front of sold out crowds.
Playing a variety of folk, blues, Americana, country and rock, Pony Creek has quickly made a name for themselves as one of the region’s hottest new acts. Whether playing Spencer, Iowa’s Wheels Up festival for RAGBRAI 2017, Manning Main Street RAGBRAI 2018 festival, or rocking the crowd for southwest Iowa’s Tri City BBQ Fest in Denison, Pony Creek delivers family friendly entertainment that connects with all ages. Opening for national artists such as Porter Union (Springfield, MO), Jeremy McComb (Nashville), “The Voice” alumni Curtis Grimes (Texas), Jason Eady (Jackson, MS), Jon Langston (Nashville), and Tucker Beathard (Nashville), the band continues to gain popularity in the Midwest region.
In September of 2018, Pony Creek released its follow up album entitled Pott County, a 15 track country/rock album that draws influences from Dwight Yoakam to Kacey Musgraves. Pott County is a mash-up of storytelling that includes small town life, heartbreak, happiness, love, family, addiction, revenge, and more. It was recorded in Omaha, Nebraska at ARC Studios and mastered by Lurssen Mastering, a world-renowned multi-Grammy Award winning mastering studio.
On the same day as their sophomore album release, Pony Creek earned their third nomination for "Best Country" by the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards. Pony Creek’s music can be found on AMI Jukeboxes nationwide.
