Randy Rogers Band & Stoney LaRue

July 20th, 2018 | Doors at 7PM Show at 8PM
Authenticity isn’t something that can be manufactured in a studio. It’s not a craft that can be learned or artfully practiced. It comes from living life. It’s the byproduct of blood, sweat and tears and as the foundation for music, it elevates mere entertainment to compelling art. Every note, every word from the Randy Rogers Band’s rings with authenticity that makes each song linger with the listener long after the music fades. More info here!
