A lil' history ...
With over two thousand shows under their belts, Ami Jane & Travis have performed nationally as well as in and around the tri-state area to enthusiastic audiences of all ages.
Meeting for the first time at an impromptu country music event performance in the summer of 2010, they immediately realized that the blending of their unique musical styles and soaring harmonies would produce a riveting new sound... so they began preforming as a duo, singing vintage and modern hits as well as reinventing the classics.
Soon after being called upon to play larger venues, the Roadshow was born - Adding live Pedal Steel, Pianos, Guitar, Bass and Drums to the mix - for the "Full Country Experience".
