Scott Joss / Chris Gentry

Bandhoppers presents country legends Scott Joss and Chris Gentry along with local country artist Jennifer Belle (Castro Valley, CA)


Scott Joss was recently inducted into the National Fiddlers Hall of Fame.  His impressive career includes 15 years with Dwight Yoakam.  In 2003 he joined forces with Merle Haggard as one of the legendary “Strangers”, and toured with Merle until his passing in 2016.  During the same year, Kris Kristofferson hired Merle’s band the “Strangers”, and Scott has been busy touring North America, Europe, and Australia playing to sold out shows with Kris Kristofferson ever since.  Scott was still able to find time to release his 3rd solo album in 2018, with Kristofferson joining him on two of the songs.  It won’t be long before Joss hits the road again with Kristofferson, but in the meantime and for the first time, we are able to allow Scott Joss to headline his own music, and become the main attraction.


Chris Gantry wrote the #1 standard “Dreams of the Everyday Housewife”. Originally from Queens, NY, Chris made the move to Nashville in 1963, and played a big part in the “Outlaw” movement.  His closest running mates at the time included Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, and Shel Silverstein.  Gantry’s songs have been recorded by over 100 artists including Reba McEntire, Johnny Cash, Robert Goulet, KD Lang, Wayne Newton, and Roy Clark. In addition to songwriting, Gantry has written seven books including his latest, Gypsy Dreamers in the Alley” Cool Vibe Publishing, about his time in Nashville during the outlaw days.  The foreword of the book is written by close friend Kris Kristofferson.  Gantry's works and legacy are on display in Nashville, Tn at the Country Music Hall of Fame through February of 2021.  This year will be just as busy for Chris Gantry, with a new book and album slated for release in 2020, called "The Outlaw Bible".


Jennifer Belle is an American singer-songwriter. She was born and raised in Castro Valley, California, where she found her passion for performing at a young age. Her major influences include Patsy Cline, Shania Twain, Martina McBride, Judy Garland and Fred Astaire. She feels so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to perform not just with her vocal abilities but in her dance and acting in many professional shows from the West Coast to the East Coast including cruise ships and Steve Silver’s Beach Blanket Babylon.


Jennifer is a diverse performer in all genres, but she took the leap and started writing her own country music to make a name for herself. Growing up with country music in a small country town, it was only natural for her to do just that. Jennifer loves the aspect of storytelling in country music. She set out to find the right producer to help her achieve the goal of touching music fans with heart and soul through her voice and through the music. That is when she connected with J Gary Smith of J Gary Smith Productions. With J Gary and his son, John Smith, Jennifer is excited to release her upcoming debut album, "Jennifer Belle."
