They get around! On Friday, July 20 at 7 p.m., the charming Sail On: The Beach Boys Tribute Band will perform songs that give us all good vibrations! We think it's the most authentic Beach Boys concert experience you can get without John Stamos.
Then, on Thursday, July 26 at 7 p.m., we welcome the young and talented Mo Pitney. Mo is bringing back that traditional country sound. His new single, "Country," will remind you why you fell in love with country music. Pitney brings with him as a special guest the local country artist Jake Penrod.
August is all about Bluegrass! On Friday, August 3 at 7 p.m., the duo Dailey and Vincent bring bluegrass, traditional country and gospel music to our stage. Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent, backed by one of the best bands on tour today, are some of the most reputable and elite entertainers in American music. Collectively they have so many Grammys, Dove Awards and IBMA Awards that we cannot fit them in this description.
Next, on Saturday, August 11 at 8 p.m., we give you the Beatles with a twist. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Bluegrass Band is back! Just as the Beatles broke the mold of all things rock and roll, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Bluegrass Band follows closely with that same spirit of innovation, interpreting songs already loved by millions. The beloved songs are presented with instruments you normally wouldn't expect to hear and played in a way they are not normally played. The result is a lively sound with fun surprises.
Then, on Thursday, August 16 at 7 p.m., we welcome The Bellamy Brothers. Best-known for the easy rolling, '70s Southern soft rock classic "Let Your Love Flow," the Bellamy Brothers are the most successful duo in country music history, consistently climbing into the upper reaches of the Billboard country charts during the '80s, including "Redneck Girl," "If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me" and "Dancin' Cowboys.
Next, on Thursday, August 23 at 7 p.m., we have a tribute show like no other. Liberty Hall is proud to welcome Cash and Cline… Country Royalty. A concert that brings together the songs of two of the most influential and legendary artists of all time, Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline! Benny Wheels, with his easy going nature, deep bass-baritone vocals and commanding stage presence, brings back the image and spirit of The Man in Black in his Folsom Prison prime.
On Friday, August 24 at 7:30 p.m., we have a benefit concert on behalf of the Children's Miracle Network, Amy Holden and Friends with Special Guest Milo Deering.
