Live Music By

King Benny-  from their website :     King Benny is a Blues/Rock based band out of a small river town by the Mississippi River called Louisiana, Missouri.
The band mixes several genres to make their sound. The band has been called a Bluesier version of The Band by Woodstock co-creator Artie Kornfeld and have been been influenced by many artists such as The Allman Brothers Band, Freddie King, Son House, Muddy Waters and even singer-songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and John Hiatt. "We grew up on so many different styles of music, so it's natural that all of those styles are blended in to our sound.  We want everyone who comes to a show to hear something they like."

​College Football

Are you a football fan and worried about missing out on a big game? If MU is playing the afternoon of the festival we will be showing it on a big screen under the tent so everyone can see how they are doing.   If MU is not playing we will have another SEC game on to watch.
