The Soda Crackers: With a goal to bring back the “classics,” The Soda Crackers – a six-piece band whose average age barely cracks the 30-something barrier – are in full swing. Make that – full Bakersfield Sound with a nice helping of Western Swing thrown in as a side dish of sorts. The Soda Crackers celebrate the unsung heroes of the Bakersfield Sound, the B-side hits that never get played, and the showmanship plus the instrumentation that all the greats brought to the smoky ol’ beer joints & dance halls from years gone by.

Coming in from Nashville, The Cowpokes are an authentic 5-piece Country & Western two-step dance band that primarily performs songs from the 1940s-1960s, and they are the house band of the ever-vibrant Honky Tonk Tuesday Nights at the American Legion Post 82 in Nashville, TN. The boys’ reverence for the music of the golden era of Country music is paramount, and it is visibly evident in their classic Western performance outfits which are as electrifying as their live shows themselves. Audiences young and old respond to The Cowpokes’ throwback playing style and their fans enjoy hearing them play timeless hits as well as original songs written by members of the band.

Kyle Eldridge: Kyle Eldridge is a Country & Western singer songwriter from Louisville, Kentucky and known as one of the most prominent guitar players in the traditional scene for his Maphis/ Travis picking and Western Jazz styling. He got his start playing in the south where he met Upright Bassist Dakota Collins who brought him to Nashville, Tennessee. They began playing Honky Tonks on the famous Broadway strip and soon after, he recorded his debut EP in Los Angeles, California at Deke Dickerson’s studio.

He has played next to such artists as Jim Heath of Reverend Horton Heat, Shaun Young of High Noon, Jody & Rose Lee Maphis, The Lucky Stars, Dale Watson and many more.

VIP is available as a add on and will include a hour early entry (5pm), signed poster, & complimentary popcorn.
