Outdoor Music & Tribute Shows

Safety measures are currently in place. We can’t wait to return to a time when you can sit back and relax in the Back Door Lounge with a glass of your favorite craft beer and listen to live music or enjoy a musical tribute show. But, for now, please maintain a social distance of 6 feet.


  • Live Music (temporarily unavailable)

    Sorry, we can’t have live music at this time but we’ll tell you as soon as we do!

  • Music Tribute Shows

    Tribute Shows are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 restrictions. We can’t wait to take you on a walk down memory lane with our talented performers once again.
