8th Annual Kearney Blues Festival
Featuring: Jonathon "Boogie" Long, The Electric Rev. Jimmie Bratcher, Lonnie Ray Blues Band and Blue 88

Sponsor: Westbrook Care Center

Price: $20.00 at the Gate
From Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Jonathon Boogie Long was born with the blues coursing through his veins. Brought up in a Southern Baptist community, he first picked up the guitar at the age of six, teaching himself old gospel songs. Years later, a teenage Long found himself playing weekly gigs at blues clubs and events around town. At fourteen, he left school to lay down his roots touring with local legends Henry Turner Jr. & Flavor from 2003 to 2005. Additionally, he has toured with Chris Duarte, Kenny Wayne and Tyree Neal on the Chitlin' Circuit. Boogie has shared the stage with standout musicians such as Dr. John, Rockin' Dopsie, Monte Montgomery, Ellis Hall, Kenny Neal, Larry Garner, Henry Gray, Lil Ray Neal, and Lou Marini of the Blues Brothers Band.

Eric Paslay
with Special Guest: Noe Palma

Sponsor: National Marketing Resources

Price: $20.00 Online and in Advance; $30.00 at the Gate

Qty:  
Eric Paslay definitely knows how to craft a hit song. Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Love and Theft and the Eli Young Band have all scored No. 1 singles thanks to Paslay's songwriting prowess, but fans who have seen him on stage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas redhead than his excellent songwriting chops. Paslay is a charismatic performer and a potent vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. As his debut album's lead single "Friday Night" reached the No. 1 spot, Paslay has arrived as an artist in his own right.

Lil' Bit Of Bluegrass

Qty:  
Sponsored by Liberty Hospital
Loaded Goat is a mad mash of bluegrass, old-time, honky-tonk music. To activate: Flick a little moonshine in it's face and get ready for some banjo for your ear-holes. Playing a predominantly original catalog of heartbreak and headache, Loaded Goat will occasionally surprise with the surprising cover song. Loaded Goat is great for bars, campfire jams, weddings, cowboy saloon shootouts, Rural Grit Happy Hour, and more, more, more.

    Sponsored by Kearney Clinic


    A lowly Lego figure (voiced by Chris Pratt) joins a group intent on battling an evil force after a case of mistaken identity in this computer-generated comedy from the filmmakers behind Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and co-director Chris McKay (Robot Chicken). Will Arnett co-stars as the voice of Batman, who along with Superman, make appearances in the Warner Bros. picture. Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, and Alison Brie head up the rest of the voice cast. Author: Jeremy Wheeler

    Jon Pardi
    with Special Guest: 6 Degrees West

    Sponsor: Clay County Savings Bank

    Price: $20.00 Online and in Advance; $30.00 at the Gate

    Qty:  
    "All I ever wanted to do coming to Nashville was to write rowdy, in-your-face, straight country music," says Jon Pardi, "and that's what this album is." Pardi's high-energy approach, perfected on stages throughout his native California, has its stamp all over his Capitol Records Nashville debut. Just as importantly, that energy is applied to music rooted in songwriting legend Harlan Howard's adage that country is three chords and the truth.

    Chase Rice
    with Special Guest: Brian Davis

    Sponsor: Super 8 of Kearney & La Fuente Mexican Restaurants

    Price: $25.00 Online and in Advance; $35.00 at the Gate

    Qty:  
    When he takes the stage to perform, Chase Rice pulls no punches. "You're gonna be mine and I'm gonna be yours for an hour and a half. We're gonna be in each other's face. If you don't like that, walk out the door." It's his M.O: take it or leave it. Yes, the budding country star means business when he performs. And the crowds that dutifullyyell every damn word back his way? They don't seem to mind one bit. "I'm looking for people who are looking to have the best night of their entire life," Rice says of his raucous, get-down-or-get-out live ragers. "If you aren't here to party, I'm gonna make you party!"

    Levee Town
    with Special Guest: Billy Ebeling & the Late for Dinner Band

    Sponsor: Knights of Columbus Council #8915

    Price: $10.00 Online and in Advance; $20.00 at the Gate

    Qty:  
    Pages of Paperwork is the fifth installment in Levee Town's catalog. With a sound built on years of constant performing and songwriting, the band has created a hard-driving, smoothly-polished, soulful record. Pages of Paperwork exhibits a maturity and sophistication borne of heartbreak and the joy of personal resurgence. Songwriters Hudspeth, Garoutte, and Meade share a convergent vision of the world-at-large and craft their individual tunes in a similar vein. The band chugs along with astonishing energy and focus. Vocally, Levee Town is obviously comfortable performing an ever-widening array of styles. From rocking shuffles to grinding slow blues to North-Mississippi-style rockers to KC swing numbers, Pages Of Paperwork is an exhilarating breath of fresh air and a joy to take in.

    Parmalee
    with Special Guest: State Line Drive

    Sponsor: Mosaic Life Care & La Fuente Mexican Restaurants & Oak Pointe Assisted Living & Memory Care

    Price: $25.00 Online and in Advance; $35.00 at the Gate

    Qty:  
    From this tiny town that's home to a gas station, two blinking yellow lights, and a small tin- roofed barn dubbed Studio B, country rockers Parmalee launched their long journey to Nashville. The near-fatal robbery Parmalee experienced after a show would have destroyed most bands. But brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, cousin Barry Knox and longtime friend Josh McSwain didn't call it quits. Instead it reinforced their intense motivation and dedication to one another and to their determination to succeed.

    Each obstacle that delayed Parmalee's arrival to Nashville was an extra mile that allowed the groundbreaking sounds of artists like Jason Aldean and Eric Church to pave the way for the worlds of country radio and Parmalee's brand of country music to meet at the perfect crossroad.
