At the 2015 BBB Dickson Street Stage… Free live music is gonna take you away!
For the 15th, we 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. Did you want blues? We had 9 blues/r and b bands, not to mention that on Friday, we hosted the first annual BBB Battle of the Blues Bands on the main Stage, won by the Ocie Fisher band of Fayettevilled. Or did you want a variety of music? Besides blues, we had R and B, Classic Rock, Party/Dance/80’s Hair Band, Country, and Bluegrass. And after the rally was over, the iconic Dr. John did a concert at the Walton Art Center on Sunday night.
Now then, for starters, sponsored by Pace Industries, Grammy winner Chubby Carrier returned after an absence. Of course, we brought back Mountain Sprout and their show, the likes of which you’ve never seen. The consummate showman Andy Frasco was 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? Steve Brack will delivered a show that left the crowd yelling for more. But it gets even better – America’s pre-eminent 80’s Tribute Hairband, Members Only, absolutely set the stage afire on Saturday night. And finally, you surely didn’t 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. Want to know more about this year’s bands? Just check this space regularly and when the schedule is done, it’ll be posted here.
And by the way, our good friends Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys sponsored all the music for both Friday and Saturday nights. Remember, if you go down, call Russ brown!
So, it’s non-stop entertainment on the Bikes Blues and BBQ Mainstage and it’s always free!
