The Disco Biscuits

Admit it: you’re in love with their name (us too). Pioneers of “trancefusion,” which bridges the gap between electronic music and jam bands, The Disco Biscuits hail from Philadelphia and are as at home at marathon dance parties as they are at live improvisational performances.
TAKE 2: This Just In
Due to logistics, Foreigner is moving its two March shows to May 19 and 20, 2021. Don’t worry – it’ll still feel like the first time. All tickets sold will be automatically applied to the new shows and additional tickets are on sale now.

A semi-acoustic reggae performance by the power duo Julian Marley and Aston Barrett, Jr., the offspring of Bob Marley and Aston Barrett. Their sound is a culmination of a life-long
friendship and musical collaboration between the two. The Wailers’ new album has received a 2021 Grammy nod for Best Reggae album, and Julian’s latest, “As I Am,” was nominated in 2019.
Jamey Johnson & Randy Houser: A Special Acoustic Performance Together – Cadillac Country Tour
Thursday, February 25, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.
Two of the hottest country music singer-songwriters in the business will perform together onstage at Frontyard Festival. The Washington Post calls 11-time Grammy-nominated Jamey Johnson “one of the greatest country singers of our time,” and he’s one of only a few to win two Song of the Year Awards from both the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Academy of Country Music.
Randy Houser has a stripped-down, back-to-basics approach and a “wholly different, thicker and more throbbing, a cauldron bubbling over” voice according to The New York Times. Houser has four number-one hits and a CMA Song of the Year nomination.
Through Unity, We Shall Overcome
Sunday, February 20, 2021 at 7 p.m.
Presented free to the public by Mayor Dyer’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission

One of the funniest comedians on the circuit, Preacher Lawson gained national acclaim as a finalist on NBC’s America’s Got Talent (Season 12) and top five overall on America’s Got Talent: The Champions.
