Wednesday, July 2

9 p.m. Music by Gwen Sebastian (At Parking lot behind Buckskin Bar & Grill)

Gwen Sebastian was born in the small farming town of Hebron. After receiving her college degree, Sebastian attended nursing school, but dropped out after only one semester in order to relocate to Nashville, Tennessee and pursue her music career. She signed a recording deal with Lofton Creek Records in October 2009, and shortly thereafter Country Weekly named Sebastian among its pick of talented new artists to watch in 2010. Sebastian’s first single, “Hard Rain”, was released to country radio on October 12, 2009. On June 8, 2010, Sebastian participated in the 4th Annual Country Weekly Fashion Show and Concert, held at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. The event raised funds and awareness for Musicians on Call, a nonprofit organization with the mission of bringing music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. Sebastian was a contestant on the second season of NBC’s reality singing competition The Voice. Sebastian chose fellow country singer Blake Shelton to be her vocal coach for the show. Sebastian worked with Shelton and Miranda Lambert for her battle round, but was eliminated just before the live shows. After being eliminated, Sebastian toured with Shelton and Lambert.

9 p.m.  Street Dance (At Parking lot behind Buckskin Bar & Grill)

9 p.m.  Music by Tigirlily & Dirty Word (At Parking Lot Behind Buckskin Bar & Grill)

Dirty Word is “that” band. The one that leaves audiences on their feet, stunned and literally begging for one more song. Dirty Word’s playlist is a virtual library of hits that leaves no genre untouched including top 40 pop, soulful funk grooves, rockin’ country and classic rock and pop hits that span five decades. Dirty Word is redefining what can be achieved by a band in a live setting with that rare combination of incredible vocal performances from all the members and a command of their instruments that is equally impressive. No longer just the best kept secret in Minneapolis, Dirty Word’s relentless touring has resulted in a legion of fans and a reputation as one of the best live acts in the Midwest. Optimism personified, North Dakota sisters, Kendra and Krista, combine distinctive talents to comprise the genre-bending duo, Tigirlily. Singing since they were talking, blending their voices was a natural step. In an astonishingly short time, the siblings have progressed from sharing in church to sharing the stage with national acts, and gathering a rapidly growing international fan base via YouTube.

32 Below takes no breaks. As a result of their hard-working roots and their respect for the crowd, when this band takes the stage the music does not stop. Combining their inspired original music with songs by artists they love, 32 Below has rolled their spectacle to venues across the country, leaving behind only wide eyes and dropped jaws. The combination of over three hours of unparalleled energy in their relentless show, nationwide airplay, and 25,000+ albums sold has opened many ears to the sound of the boys from Fargo, ND. Ever-changing for better than a decade, 32 Below has always made music that can only be described as all their own. To hear is to know, and to see is to believe. Come hear, come see…32 Below: “Where Country and Rock Collide.”
