More than 200 shows a year. Jubilant fans who follow him from Minnesota to Mexico. More than 70,000 albums sold. A new release “Get Up” and a state-of-the-art nightclub named after one of his songs -- all without the support of a major record label… 

GB Leighton, a band named after one of the regions’ most incendiary live performers and consistently solid songwriters, Brian Leighton.  Through more than a decade and eleven studio albums, Leighton and his six piece band have been tearing up rock clubs, festivals and even a few fan’s living rooms with a slew of songs that connect with the heart and couples singing along out on the dance floor.  “A man of the people” is a phrase usually reserved for statesmen and politicians, but for Leighton, it’s a fitting description when you see him in action working a crowd.

Wayne decided to pursue the one man band effort after playing at A-J Acres Campground with long time friend Jim Slate and an electric drum machine. Thanks to Mark Fournier who runs the campground he was able to start building a one man band system after Mark hired Wayne to play special events every summer at the campground.

 Wayne sings, plays guitar and harmonica. He plays bars, weddings, parties and Luau’s. At parties, weddings and Luaus, Wayne does his one-man band act plus he DJ’s during the evening so the music keeps flowing at all times.

Wayne encourages people to bring their favorite CD’s and he’ll play them at their request. For the bar and nightclub shows, Wayne will play and on his intermissions he will play appropriate CDs until he gets back on stage.

SATURDAY AUGUST 12th

  Hitchville has quickly solidified themselves among the upper echelon of regional talent.  Under the leadership of dynamic lead vocalists Heidi Owens and Matthew Kneefe, the group’s trademark harmonies, down home personalities, and kinetic stage energy leads to an unforgettable live show in which the band has worked tirelessly to produce.


The group’s brand new, highly anticipated sophomore album “Soundtrack to Life” is now available everywhere! It includes their first iHeartRadio #1 single “Even When It’s Bad It’s Good”, as well as their newly crowned 2nd iHeartRadio #1 single “Love is the Road” which climbed the iHeartMedia charts faster than ever.  This project has been 4 years in the making, with songs written by some of Nashville’s biggest hit-makers.  The band has also recently realized another big dream of theirs: to start their own country music and camping festival…and so it began!  The First Annual Hitchville Hootenanny took place in August, 2015 with some of the region’s most sought after talent and was a resounding success!  2016’s Hootenanny finished up again with an award winning lineup and as many memories and there were country music fans in attendance.


Over the past few years, fans have come to know to expect the unexpected at a Hitchville show.  There’s really only one place where the beer is always cold, the people are always friendly, the music is always world class, and the energy is always palpable…they’d like to welcome everybody home… to Hitchville.
