Saturday Nov. 9th @ 7:00pm Live Music by Redneck Rodeo
Calling themselves the “America's country band,” Redneck Rodeo brings the heart of country music alive onstage with energetic performances. Wearing custom cuts each member owns his own flavor of renegade; “Bristles” charging on drums leading the pack, "Rocky Bottoms" snarky as he plucks away at the bass and lead vocals, “Richie Rich” picking guitar and singing, and “the prospect” playing guitar with back up vocals rounding out the band.
