House Band

Our outstanding house band includes Chuck Back, Paul Polish, Dan Range, Roy Rosetta, Denny Sarver, and others.

Second Annual Non-Pedal Session

Our non-pedal session has a great line-up this year. We look forward to expanding this portion of our show. This year the line-up includes three Steel Guitar Hall of Fame Members plus players from all over the United States. This year we are having this portion of the show on Saturday afternoon, with a jam session to follow. It will be held in the Crestview Ballroom, which is across the driveway from the convention entrance.

Raffle items

Again this year, Meriul and Peggy have made a gorgeous one of a kind steel guitar quilt that some lucky person will be taking home.

Gretsch has donated two very nice resonator guitars with nice cases for our raffle and Silent auction.
