Barndance Bands

The music lineup on July 20th is unbelievable. Barndance kicks off at 5 pm outside with the 7-piece EMBRY BROTHERS BAND all the way from Florida. Jamming some classic rock, southern rock and country until 7 pm. After the conclusion of the live auction…watch out…RETURNING BY POPULAR DEMAND — the SPAZMATICS —  Outstanding musicianship combined with creative flair and style makes for an evening of pure energy and entertainment. We will be partying like it’s 1999; only it’s not! It will be 3 hours of music that will keep the dance floor rocking right until the very end.
