Schedule of Events:
12pm: Pre-party for ticketed concert goers at the Templeton Rye Distillery, including all access tours, refreshments and award winning BBQ prepared by Woodfellas from Ankeny, Iowa. There will also be samples of various Iowa products including Santa Maria wines and Award Winning 21st Amendment Ale produced by Court Avenue Brewery in Des Moines and aged in used Templeton Rye barrels.
2pm: Acoustic performance by The Nadas in the distillery featuring hit songs Templeton Rye and Goodnight Girl.
3pm: Beer garden opens at concert site adjacent to distillery. All proceeds benefit the Templeton Community Betterment Association.
4pm: Manning’s own Brian Joens performs a grab bag of Americana, bluegrass and tremelo-laden musings about classic rock dinosaurs, outhouses, stray dogs and roads (dirt and paved), all with his unique Iowa perspective.
5pm: The Prairie Cats are an 8-piece band hailing from Omaha that deliver an all-original “pop-swing” mix of jump-blues, big band, rockabilly, latin and bop, delivered in an all-out rock attack.
6:30pm: Aged Spirits is a Templeton based band playing a mix of classic rock and blues. Joining the band is special guest Katie Klocke, also a Templeton native.
7:30pm: With a deft pop sensibility, Chicago-based singer/songwriter Dick Prall sings about the good, bad, and fugly moments he’s encountered in life and relationships, turning them into subtle parables that linger longer on the heart and go deeper than most surface-bound pop hits.
9:00pm: Hairball is the world’s ultimate “80′s Rock” impersonation act, recreating the good-time party atmosphere of the decadent decade with unmatched authenticity. They cop the personas of the era’s legendary front men while rapidly changing elaborate costumes, then complete their transformations with dead-on visual and vocal performances.
Please plan ahead and travel safely to and from this event. Hotels are available in nearby Carroll, Iowa.
