Love And Theft — Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson — launched with the No. 1 country smash “Angel Eyes” and top 10 hit “Runaway.” The longtime friends and bandmates have gone on to garner more than 3 billion radio impressions, over 300 million plays on Pandora, and are nearing 3 million music video streams for the critically acclaimed “Whiskey On My Breath,” an epic ballad that “returns Love And Theft to the harmony-rich sound that first turned heads when they started out,” (Rolling Stone). The ACM/CMA/CMT nominated duo has built a loyal fan base through their high-energy shows, infectious harmonies, and signature songwriting and is poised for the next chapter in their musical journey. The pair is currently putting the final touches on their fourth studio album, produced by legendary music icon Jim Ed Norman, and will release on Curb Records later this year.

Dreams:Fleetwood Mac Tribute -Thurs., Aug.2 - 7 PM


From the music to the costumes, Dreams portrays Fleetwood Mac with incredible authenticity. This is definitely a show you won’t want to miss. Formed in 2005, this group of talented, diverse performers came together with a passion for the music, and a desire to take the 'Tribute Act' genre to another level. When you sit back and reminisce about the 70's & 80's music, one of the top bands to grace the charts was Fleetwood Mac. Even today, 30 plus years later, you can still hear their music on the radio stations around the world. It was with that thought in mind that Dreams was born. Together Stevie (Tracy Masson), Lindsey (Mario Parente), Christine (Wendy Gorrie), Mick (Todd McGarvey), John (Ray Doucet), are “The Mac Pac.” The fab five are joined by the talents of Stephen Manning (Rhythm Guitar) and Bob Van Velzen (Keyboards), completing this grand seven piece live production. The cast of Dreams takes great pride being able to replicate the Fleetwood Mac sound so closely that it’s difficult to tell the difference. Get going and get grooving to Dreams.
