SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 2019 MAIN STAGE:
HomeBrewed – 4:30 – 6:00 PM
This Iowa City-based band plays Rockabilly, Rock and Blues. Dancing and fun is the key as they play tunes from the likes of Johnny Cash, Elvis, Stray Cats, Keb Mo, Little Walter, Queen, George Thorogood, Eric Clapton, Sonny Boy Williamson and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats. The mix of blues, gospel and country infused with rock and rock and roll will entertain you. What makes this group special is that they use their music to also give back for all of the blessings they have had in life and play primarily for fundraisers for charitable organizations.
Georgia Clay – 8:00 PM
Georgia Clay draws inspiration from pop powerhouses such as Kelly Clarkson, Pink and Carrie Underwood while bringing the rawness of Gretchen Wilson! Their energy and enthusiasm is infectious and draws the crowd in at every turn. They are constantly creating the set list based on requests from the crowd. Georgia Clay is more than just a group of performers, they go the extra mile and truly entertain the audience with high-energy stage performances and it shows, in EVERY show. Georgia Clay is comprised of some of the Twin Cities finest musicians. They are great friends on and off the stage, and the comradery that oozes from the stage is infectious. Commonly we hear comments like, “they pull you into their world and keep you there all night long” or “it’s impossible not to have fun with this group on stage.” The lead vocalist, Tammy Jo has enjoyed radio-play on Bob FM (featured on the Homegrown show), Magic 105 and even 93X with her original album. This group has played on countless stages from fairs and festivals to nightclubs, casinos, weddings and corporate events, they will have you dancing and singing from the get go! Quite literally, Tammy recently said to us, “If they aren’t singing along on the dance floor during the first song, I’m wireless and will head out into the crowd!” FUN GROUP, FUN SONG LIST, FUN SHOW!
