8pm – DARK HOLLOW BOTTLING COMPANY: The music of Dark Hollow Bottling Company can be loosely classified as Americana; fusing bluegrass, rockabilly, folk, rock and pop music. They are a living example of the American melting pot. A journey along a road of our collective culture.

Dark Hollow Bottling Company is born of this journey. Five guys with some good tales to tell. Songs with roots that’ll make your soul stomp the floorboards in double time. Children will smile, grown men will howl and the ladies will swoon.
