John Eddie and His Dirty Ol’ Band
Virginia born, New Jersey raised, Nashville based John Eddie is a singer/songwriter/semi-professional drinker who fronts The Dirty Ol’ Band. Ask John to describe the band’s music and he’ll tell you it’s their own brand of deep fried, gas guzzling, heart breaking, liver killing rock n’ roll smothered in twang. This music will give you a great reason to raise your glasses, cups or bottles. Catch live performances from 5:30PM to 8PM. Between sets, Tropicana keeps the energy high with a talented DJ.
The undisputed star of the event is the amazing array of spirits being poured. But the unfortunate truth is that man (and woman) cannot live by beer and whiskey alone. Be sure to visit the festival food carts to have your fill before you go sampling, or take a break to soak up all that liquid goodness.
Arts, Crafts and Souvenirs
In addition to the festival’s broad selection of quality beverages to taste and purchase, attendees will enjoy shopping opportunities from local, regional and national vendors.
