Saturday night powerhouse lineup won't disappoint, with Texas outlaw country legend Stoney Larue, Ben Haggard (son of the legendary Merle Haggard but brilliantly making his own path), another Texas based favorite Sunny Sweeney and the up and coming Ben Chapman, who you do not want to miss. Sunday is stacked with the super talented outlaw country performer Ward Davis headlining.

This Arizona based band once described as the Bastard Son's of Foghat, AC/DC and ZZ Top will keep your head nodding with their cow punk southern rock outlaw country sound.

Shawnee Cave Revival (published July 20, 2021)
WOW is all I can say! The Shawnee Cave Revival weekend is the beginning of something very special. This event will for sure be one of our marquee events in 2022. Friday started off with Magnolia Boulevard. Maggie Noelle was an absolute powerhouse and I think we will see a lot from her and this talented band in the future! The legendary Ivan Nevelle and Dumpstaphunk put it in the DUMPSTA as his followers would say. Headliner North Mississippi Allstars gave the crowd what they came for. I enjoyed watching Luther Dickinson play my sons butterscotch Fender Telecaster. Saturday started off bad as Cedric Burnside canceled due to family emergency but I knew watching Eric Gales during sound check that it was going to be a very special night. Those of you that arrived late will learn this isn't your typical venue and to show up on time. Every artist on our line up absolutely brought it. Eric Gales set the bar so High. I was told prior to the show that Eric Gales was the best guitar player alive. I said WOW that's a bold statement. His only response was "you'll see". I will be honest I had my doubts. Eric Gales erased all doubts with the absolute best performance of the night in my opinion. His set left me staring in awe for the entire time. His engagement with the crowd is something not enough musicians do. I honestly felt sorry for Vella after learning that this was her first time to play in front of a large crowd and she had to follow Eric Gales. When her father/manager told me it was her first time I looked at her and said don't worry its only my second time. I was impressed with her confidence, powerful vocals and stage presence. She too put on one heck of a show. Fans lined in to see Co-Headliner Samantha Fish and she brought the house down. Her bluesy 75 minute set finally got people on their feet. If there were any doubts that The Blind Boys of Alabama still had it after 75 years of touring those were eliminated. I was absolutely impressed with the energy they brought and the fans stuck around in the rain so it seems they were too. I look forward to growing this event every year. The Shawnee Cave Revival like all events would not be possible without our wonderful staff. So many people come together with one common goal to make these events a success. Thank You all so much! I would also like to thank each and every person who purchased a ticket, a drink or merchandise. We could not do this without you.

Weekend at The Cave (published June 14, 2021)
For two weeks now I have been in disbelief looking at the pictures and videos of what we did together. Our Memorial Day Event "The Weekend At The Cave" has exceeded expectations. We would like to thank each and every person that purchased a ticket or showed up to support us. We had 39 states represented at our first show.
