POSTPONED: TURN TURN TURN & David Huckfelt Play the Silverdome Ballroom on September 12

PLEASE NOTE: The TURN TURN TURN & David Huckfelt show has been postponed due to questionable weather forecasts for the weekend.

We are thrilled to announce that TURN TURN TURN, the new band that includes Honeydogs singer-songwriter, Adam Levy, along with Barb Brynstad and Savannah Smith, will be performing from our outdoor stage the following SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th, playing songs from their highly-regarded new album, Can’t Go Back. And the icing on the cake? DAVID HUCKFELT of The Pines is going to perform a solo set to open this show, no doubt performing songs from his forthcoming solo album, Room Enough, Time Enough.

There are 50 tickets at $25 each, first come first served. Music from approximately 7 to 10 pm. Message us on Facebook or contact us here and we’ll give you some payment directions.

We’ll be sure to take appropriate precautions to keep each couple or group well-spaced from others, masks will be encouraged if not required, depending on the State edict at the time, sanitizer will be readily available, etc. More announcements soon!

SOLD OUT: Charlie Parr Saturday, September 5th (Labor Day weekend)

Hello fans of the Silver Dome, and welcome back for our September series of outdoor micro shows (capacity 50, well-spaced, etc.) from a small flatbed trailer behind the ballroom.

First up is the incomparable Charlie Parr on Saturday, September 5th (Labor Day weekend), with an opening set from Aaron Lee Kaplan, a talented Country-Blues acoustic guitarist.  50 tickets at $30 each, first come, first served.

If you’re one of the lucky first 50, we’ll reach out to you to arrange payment.  This show will no doubt sell out in a matter of minutes, not hours, so if you’re seeing this more than an hour after it’s been posted, don’t bother (please), you’ll be too late.

More announcements coming soon for the remaining Saturdays in September, and possibly for Sunday, Sep 6th as well.  Good luck to us all and don’t forget to love each other!

Sorry – the show is sold out!
