In 1986, Castle Farms in Charlevoix, Michigan rocked to the sounds of ZZ Top and I was fortunate to be there celebrating the music. And, then again in 2019 at the Bourbon and Beyond Music Festival in Louisville. The band has so much energy and they still have IT, spinning their guitars to ignite the crowd. I'd see them again in a heartbeat, and I'm glad that they'll be so close to home. Although, I'm sure that tickets will sell out fast!

Tickets for ZZ Top go on sale this Friday, May 14th, 2021 at 10 AM. The concert event will happen at the Great Lawn At Waterfront Park in Louisville on Sunday, July 18th, 2021 at 7:00 PM.

I've seen Styx play multiple times throughout the years. Most recently in 2019 at the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City, Michigan. They play the best pop-rock and soft rock in the business. Their iconic songs are fun to sing along with. It takes you back to those early days when you were first introduced to their music! I would pay to see them again.

Tickets for Styx are already on sale. They'll take the stage on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2021 at 7:00 PM. Tickets are going fast so be sure to get yours today.

Billy Strings is set to perform three shows this month and all are SOLD OUT. Greensky Bluegrass has two days on the schedule over the 4th of July weekend. Tickets go on sale on Friday morning. Nelly is coming in August with tickets on sale now. One of my favorites is Shinedown. They'll perform on August 7th to a sold-out crowd.

More acts will be added in the upcoming days, weeks, and months. We'll keep you updated, and you can make plans to attend any of the shows HERE.
