October 20, 8pm

Head on out to Margaritaville. This group features four terrific musicians and singers whose only goal is to make you forget about the work week and the weather and dance your blues away. Featuring hits from the ’50s and ’60s of Jerry Lee Lewis, the Big Bopper, and the Beatles to the present with Tom Petty and R.E.M, these guys cover it all. With country hits from Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Alabama and more, you will hear all the songs that make you wanna dance, and forget about Monday.

Margaritaville consists of Dan Schilling on guitar and vocals, Tom Hartman on bass and vocals, Chris Mahner on drums and vocals, and the newest addition, Mike “the pianoman” Maresh on keyboards and vocals. They can play all the hits to get you out of that funk and out of your chair.

Come out and party the night away—because it’s always 5 o’clock in  Margaritaville.
