Barndance Bands

The music lineup on July 15th is unbelievable. Barndance kicks off with strong, steadfast and country to his core DEREK JONES AND THE 50 SOUTH Band at 5:00 pm. Next we start rocking it with the nation’s premier 80’s pop experience SIXTEEN CANDLES right after the conclusion of the live auction. And finally we close with Loverboyz featuring our own GCCF board member Hans Mast and his famous leather pants.
