Who is playing?
Our headliner, Back Porch Orchestra, will move the body and soothe the soul with a mix of rock, funk, blues, country, Americana and pop from 8-11 p.m. Based in Burlington, BPO has been rocking the local scene and beyond for more than 10 years. They draw from an eclectic playlist that ranges from Elvis Presley to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Neil Diamond to Johnny Cash to Imagine Dragons and many, many more. Please check out their website for music clips, playlist, photos and a full bio at backporchorchestra.com
Louisiana-native Lance Key loves songs that tell a story whether they be rock, folk, country or red dirt. He started by singing with his dad in church and has since built a career spanning more than 40 years, influenced by the songwriting talent of John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, and outlaw country artists Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, as well as Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Allman Brothers and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. A favorite at area bars, festivals and fundraisers, AWC is thrilled to have Lance’s soulful voice and smooth, easy-going style on the stage from 6-8 p.m.
