Performance Schedule

August 10: Sandra Dean Band

The Sandra Dean Band brings the house down with fresh interpretations of Classic Rock, Blues, and Soul music. The audience will rock out to the combination of gutsy guitar solos, revved-up bass guitar, fervent drums, heartfelt keyboard, and Sandra Dean’s one-of-a-kind soulful, rock-n-roll voice.

August 17: Crawdaddies

The Crawdaddies infuse Cajun, Zydeco, Blues, Ska, Roots, Rock and Reggae into an incomparable, groove-laden sound that is unquestionably its own.

August 24: Ocho de Bastos

Ocho de Bastos (translation: Eight of Clubs) came to life when a group of young enthusiastic and passionate musicians formed a Latin Pop Band to bring together people of all ages and backgrounds. A unique guitar sound, blended with powerful drums, Latin percussion, and catchy brass riffs, complement Ocho de Bastos’ unique style.
