Enjoy a free outdoor show on the patio with Goat Getter, Laney Jones, and Half Catholic. The patio is first come, first served. Bring a lawn chair if you come late!

Goat Getter is a local band led by our own bar manager Jack Barnett. Laney Jones is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist that performs on banjo, ukulele, guitar, and harmonica. Half Catholic is Rockford's favorite pop-rock band; they'll be closing out the night.

Welcome back our dear friends, Kelly Steward & The Restless Kind. Kelly writes, plays, and sings a style of music that blends rock, folk, country, and soul. Her band is incredible, and we're so excited for this show. If the weather holds, the performance will be outside. If not, the band will be inside on our stage. This show is FREE. Reservations can be made on the homepage of our website through Tock.
