Formed in 2015, the main sound of Vandoliers Americana is Americana/Country with touches of Rock and Punk.  From the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the band's unique sound is described as mixing raw, rough-edged roots with focused fiery storytelling.  Writes Rolling Stone Magazine, "Vandoliers sound like rediscovering your parents' country record collection and realizing they’d make good punk songs."

#Smashtag is a modern pop rock cover band based out of Jacksonville and Springfield.  Their mission is simply to create a fun, energetic atmosphere that keeps the audience engaged from beginning to end.

All of the concerts in this series are free and open to the public.  So bring a lawn chair or blanket and join us Friday, June 2 at the Downtown Square for an evening of great music and great fun!
