QUICK SERVICE GARAGE 6-7pm | MINOR MISHAP MARCHING BAND
Minor Mishap Marching Band
Brassy, Sassy, and Gloriously Cacophonous! Fun, loud and in the street! Minor Mishap Marching Band is a 25-piece renegade circus-punk brass band: Bourbon Street meets Budapest. They are inspired by a love of street music, brass bands, and spectacle, as well as a desire to create community and reinvent public spaces.
STUBBLEFIELD VISITORS CENTER 6-8pm | OATMEAL SOUND COMPANY
Oatmeal Sound Company
Oatmeal Sound Company is a songwriting duo comprised of Edward Billock and James Hodges. Although somewhat new to the central Texas area, the beginning was really 30 years ago when the two met in West Texas. The musical connection was immediate, and the songwriting began! Time and life happened, and their families were separated by miles and states—but never in heart. They finally made it back to the same zip code around Oatmeal Texas, and now, it’s original music being expressed in a classic Americana style. Our expression is always with gratitude, always from the heart, and decorated with a few tributes to classics of the past.
QUICK SERVICE GARAGE 7-9pm | JOSH DYER
Josh Dyer is a local singer, songwriter and guitarist. He has been playing professionally since 2001 and has played all over the country with some well-known artists like Blue October, Breaking Benjamin and Volbeat. Josh enjoys playing a wide range of music covering many eras and generations. On a typical weekend night, you might find Josh at the Liberty Hill Beer Market playing songs like Foy Vance’s “Bangor Town.”
VETERANS MEMORIAL PARK 6-8pm | FIFTH OF A FIFTH
Fifth of a Fifth
Fun. Bluesy. Jazz. Fifth of a Fifth brings together musicians with significant experience playing jazz, classical, and rock music. They also feature original jazz charts of pop tunes arranged by pianist Robert, including “Still Crazy After All These Years”; “Sweet Things (Are Made of This)”; and “Old Town Road.” Look for local Liberty Hillian, Rick Balderrama on the drums.
MAIN STREET STAGE 6-8pm | BOOT ROCK BOYS
Boot Rock Boys
If a group with a name like ”The Boot Rock Boys” sounds as if it promises the best in music variety, you’re right! Whether it’s a country classic swing song, some hybrid country rock tune that is hooting and hollering its way up the charts, or just some good down home classic rock and roll, The Boot Rock Boys are undeniably hot. This rugged six-member band of musicians have a good time turning out music that is honest, and upfront, with a unique style and sound that’s all their own. Their trademark is a variety of harmony vocals, with a sax and mandolin twist. Top that with hot harmonica and guitar leads, split-second timing, and overall superb musicianship blending these outstanding talents and you have a unique single musical unit that creates music from the soil and the soul.
CITY HALL 6-8pm | SARAH HALL
A classically trained harpist from the age of 6, Sarah has performed as a soloist and an accompanist, as well as with small and large ensembles, choirs, concert bands, ballets, and operas all across Texas. She also works as a studio musician and can be heard on several soon-to-be-released songs by local Austin musicians, as well she is a member of the L.A.-based SSSHeartStrings. Sarah also teaches beginner harp in Central Texas.
Believing the harp has a place outside concert halls and should be accessible to everyone, Sarah enjoys playing in more intimate settings, covering everything from Billboard 100, Broadway, Pop, Classical, Celtic, and Jazz.
MAIN STREET STAGE 8-10pm | DALE WATSON
Dale Watson is a honky tonk hero and country music maverick, a true outlaw carrying on where Waylon Jennings left off. A member of the Austin Music Hall of Fame, he stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State.
Dale signed with Red House Records in 2011 to release his 20th album called The Sun Sessions. Hailed as “one of the best country albums of the year” (Atlanta Journal Constitution), it was recorded at Memphis’ legendary Sun Studios with The Texas Two (bassist Chris Crepps and drummer Mike Bernal) in the stripped-down style of Johnny Cash’s earliest recordings. He followed this with El Rancho Azul, 14 fresh honky tonk originals about marriage, heartbreak and honkytonkin, which propelled Dale into the national spotlight with multiple appearances on late-night television and NPR.
