PERFORMANCE UPDATE: Due to a scheduling conflict, SMITHFIELD will no longer be performing. We're excited to announce THE CHEYENNE ROSE BAND will be joining the lineup in their debut Chicago performance!
The Cheyenne Rose Band at 7 pm - Cheyenne Rose brings her midwestern upbringing into her soulful yet airy stage performance on a nightly basis. Having grown up listening to all genres of music yet heavily influenced by country music, Cheyenne has an uncanny knack for telling stories through song. At a young age she has already performed with artists like Shania Twain and The Jonas brothers. She was a candidate for NBC's The Voice and she is a degreed musician from Belmont University. The Cheyenne Rose band comprised of professional Chicago musicians brings an unbridled energy and pop sensibility to Cheyennes music. They will primarily present covers from artists such as Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, Claire Dunn, Gretchen Wilson, Taylor Swift and even some heavy hitting pop stars like Brittany, TLC etc. Be prepared to dance like a 6 year old and feel the beat of the music all night long. The Cheyenne Rose band is "Here For The Party" and wont dissappoint!
Whiskeyfist at 8:30 pm - A local band of six covering your Country & Southern Rock favorites, from classing to modern, while throwing a few surprises into the mix.
Clare Dunn at 10:30 pm - Born on a farm in southeast Colorado near the Oklahoma panhandle, Clare's roots run deep in the heart of Dust Bowl country. Working cattle, hauling water, driving combines, tractors and eighteen wheelers from a young age all were a part of everyday life. When your closest neighbor is six miles away, and many hours are spent behind the wheel of a John Deere Tractor on the family farm, a work ethic becomes ingrained in your soul. During the miles burned up hauling water to cattle, Clare dreamed of creating her own music.
After graduating from Belmont College with honors, she signed her first publishing deal as a songwriter and hasn't looked back. Involved with every aspect that goes into the creative process, from writing her debut single "Get Out" with co-writer and producer Ben West, to playing guitars on the track, to singing background vocals, Clare's music is a true representation of all the things that make her who she is.
Touring, she has opened for Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, Colt Ford, Parmalee, Hank Jr., Jamey Johnson and others as well as played major festivals. With the single “Get Out” gong to radio, the world will see how unique Clare Dunn, her music and her live performance is in the world of country music.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital - The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
