At the 2014 BBB Dickson Street Stage… Free live music is gonna take you away!
For the 15th, we’ve brought back some of our historically most well-received bands and coupled that with 8 bands brand new to the rally, as well as 13 who weren’t with us on the main stage last year. Want blues? We’ve got 9 blues/r and b bands, not to mention that on Friday, we’ll be hosting the first annual BBB Battle of the Blues Bands on the main Stage. Want a variety of music? We’ve got Blues, R and B, Classic Rock, Party/Dance/80’s Hair Band, Country, and Bluegrass. And after the rally is over, the iconic Dr. John will be doing a concert at the Walton Art Center on Sunday night. Check below for ticket details.
Now then, for starters, sponsored by Pace Industries, the fabulous Chubby Carrier will be back after an absence. Of course, we’ve brought back Mountain Sprout and their show, the likes of which you’ve never seen. The consummate showman Andy Frasco will be here as well as the incredible Kansas City Blues Diva, Samantha Fish. More blues? Sure – Brody Buster, Jr. Markham, Leah and the Mojo Doctors, Steve Hester and Dejavoodoo, Steve Pryor, and more. Hot Country? Both Backroad Anthem and Steve Brack will deliver a show that’ll leave you yelling for more. But it gets even better – America’s pre-eminent 80’s Tribute Hairband, Members Only, will be setting the stage afire on Saturday night. And finally, you really don’t want to miss the “Guitar Palooza” to close the show on Friday night. The legendary Earl Cate, Tulsa blues master Steve Pryor, guitar monster Gary Hutchison, and the Pride of Kansas City, Jimmy Nace. Of course, we’ll be having free live music at the Washington County Fairgrounds Campground every night, and on Saturday at the Arvest Ball Park in Srpingdale as well.

Sunday, Sept. 28 – Walton Arts Center – 495 W. Dickson Street, Fayetteville
As the perfect end to your weekend of biking, eating & exploring NWA, let legendary six-time Grammy® winner Dr. John take you on a musical journey like no other! This New Orleans musical legend began his career in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar with some of the greatest musicians ever to come out of the Crescent City, including Professor Longhair, Art Neville and Frankie Ford. Launching a solo career as the charismatic Dr. John (a.k.a. the Nite Tripper) in 1968, his breakthrough album Gris-Gris introduced to the world a unique blend of voodoo mysticism, funk and psychedelic rock with Creole roots. Today, he continues to write, arrange and produce with a passion that has yet to wane – case in point, his 2012 album Locked Down with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album. Local band The Cate Brothers will also perform in this special Sunday night concert. For tickets call 479.443.5600 or visit www.waltonartscenter.org
