Get ready to move and groove to these two amazing bands take the stage.

Penny and the Flamethrowers Featuring the only band in north Texas fronted by a published 50s/60s style pinup model ... Penny Ruffles- trust us when we say she's a little naughty and a whole lot of nice!

Call it a marriage of the Stray Cats fed-rockabilly and Drive By Truckers inspired Alt-Country, but mostly it’s songs everyone knows, with a swingin’ beat and a bit of a modern edge. If you listen close, you might even hear an original tune sprinkled in from time to time

The Texas Bluesmen– A Tribute to Jake and Elwood Blues

In the spring of 2018, Paul Andrews (Jake) went on "A Mission" to form his vision of a tribute to The Blues Brothers for North Texas. As the proud owner of a Bluesmobile and a performer himself, it was the natural "next step."   He found "his brother Elwood" Justin Clark (a multi decade Elwood performer from the Legends show in Branson) who happened to have moved to North Texas.

It’s a sound, a look, and a vibe that’s guaranteed to keep you dancing in the aisles from the first song to the last, all while keeping the dream and legacy created by the late John Belushi & Dan Aykroyd alive and well.

Gates open at 5:45 p.m. with opening bands starting at 6:15 p.m., and headliners at 8:30 p.m. Each concert includes food trucks, beer and wine for purchase, and free activities such as Corn-Hole, Jenga, and other family games. The 2024 concert series will be located at the Farmers Branch Historical Park, with parking at 12300 Ford Rd. Bring a blanket, lawn chairs and picnic if you'd like, but no outside alcohol is permitted.

And of course, admission is free!
