    Brennen Leigh – Obsessed with the West

    Sunday, June 19, 2022

    Brennen Leigh – Obsessed with the West

    Cultural preservationist and flat-picker extraordinaire Brennen Leigh comes to Campus JAX on Sun. June 19 (fathers day)  for a 1 pm showcase with her Western swing band in support of her new album of original Western swing songs – “Obsessed with the West” (which features Asleep at the Wheel as her studio band.)

    You may have heard she is channeling Cindy Walker and Bob Wills for this new endeavor – and it is compellingly danceable. Her original western swing numbers feel as comfortable as any classics you have hard from the 40s and 50s.

    Openers will be the Soda Crackers from the Central Valley, who played a recent Hillbilly Jazz show at JAX, and perform very danceable western swing.

    Big Sandy’s Barndance Boogie Western Swing Dance Festival

    Sunday, August 21, 2022

    Big Sandy’s Barndance Boogie Western Swing Dance Festival

    Stellar Shows is presenting a Dance Festival with Western Swing music from 4 talented bands – and 4 cowgirl vocalists that we call the Honky Tonk Angels sitting in.

    Miss Mac, Miss Kitty, Lil’ Sue and Abby Girl are the Honky Tonk Angels.

    Sunday Aug. 21, 2-8 pm is the date in Long Beach, Calif. for Big Sandy’s Barndance Boogie

    Our host and DJ is Big Sandy.
    Carl Sonny Leyland leads his All-Star Western Swing band as our headliners.
    The Southwest Biscuit Company brings classic and original music to the Barndance Boogie stage with big band style.
    Lil’ Mo and the Lonesome Crows play vintage Western swing from bygone days of yesteryear.
    The Dickens cowgirl band performs Opry-style country swing with a passion reminiscent of the Carter Family

    Big Sandy’s Barndance Boogie Western Swing Dance Festival takes over a gorgeous art deco venue in Long Beach, At The Top, with a chuckwagon BBQ, private booths, full bar and a huge wood dance floor.

    In the post-war years, when the fleet would come in to Long Beach harbor, the bars and clubs would be crowded with servicemen enjoying Western Swing music from Bob Wills, Spade Cooley, Patsy Cline and many more. We are bringing that vintage flavor back for one big day. Join us!
    See poster for details, and reserve a spot now at bit.ly/BARNDANCE-BOOGIE-LONG-BEACH
    Learn more at StellarShows.net
    2 Hours free parking is just a block away.
