American Scarecrows

Saturday, August 2- 8:00pm

The first single, "Cheshire" off their new album, Yesteryear (June 2014), best embodies the band's current direction. The song is an unabashedly honest love story about a girl from Northern Minnesota; the piece is a narrative masquerading as a pop song laced with fragile emotion and the buoyancy of young love.

Collective Soul

2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Collective Soul. The band released Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid in 1994 as their first studio album. The long awaited 9th studio album See What You Started By Continuing fully embodies the journey that Collective Soul has taken musically and personally throughout the last two decades.


Sunday, August 3- 8:00pm

Hairball is the world's ultimate "80's Rock" impersonation act, recreating the good-time party atmosphere of the decadent decade with unmatched authenticity. They copy the personas of the era's legendary front men while rapidly changing elaborate costumes, then complete their transformations with dead-on visual and vocal performances.

American Young

Monday, August 4- 8:00pm

From the easy, almost hushed jangly plea of “Love Is War,” to the driving, fiddle-laden anger of “Wasn’t Gonna Drink Tonight,” American Young isn’t content with their audience being passive listeners to their music. They want them to feel it in their soul.

His impressive evolution is immediately evident on his second studio album, See You Tonight, which artfully captures who he is now, both as an artist and as a man.
