Updates! Updates! Updates!

We’ve overhauled the About page on this site. Be sure to check it out as it features our brand new promo video! We’re really excited about the work our video editor is doing for us. Let us know if you need a fancy promo video as we’ll be glad to hook you up!


Also if you haven’t noticed yet, we have posted a new show for July! We’ll talk more about it in future posts but we’re really excited to be hosting nationally emerging artist Lapland, along with a couple of Springfield’s best bands, Lowder and Big Storm! Check out the facebook event for more details.

The Horse Show, It Happened!

Just going to say, we were really nervous about the Horse Show. The odds were against it with 2 other great fests going on the same day, plus rain and storms, but it happened!


We were pretty worried with the weather forecast if enough people would even come where we could make maybe half of the money we needed to pay the musicians, especially considering this was our first attempt at something this big, but it happened! We were so happy to see the brave folks who made it out. Many generous donations came together and we didn’t actually have to pay anything out of pocket to make this show happen! This of course was going to help us determine if this would actually become a true annual event. With the help of everyone, including volunteers, artists, and fans, we can safely say there will be a second annual Horse Show!

Just wanted to let you know how excited we are! It was exhausting work to put this on, but we loved every minute of it. So many great stories were shared, and songs were sang. The owners of Refuge Ranch were overjoyed bye the whole experience. All the musicians we talked to really expressed how they loved playing the show. It seems we had an idea of what the Horse Show would mean for everyone, and then it was cranked to 11.

Not Just Music at the Horse Show!

If you’re one of those folks who find 12 hours of music a little daunting, we totally understand. It takes years of meticulous musical geekery to obtain such an endurance. Don’t worry, there are plenty of things to do at the Horse Show this Saturday!


For starters, there is food! Ayappa’s International Cuisine from White Oaks Mall will be offering gyros, falafel, cheeseburgers, and fries. We’re excited to get our pitas around their delightful hunks of lamb. (there was nothing wrong with that sentence, it just doesn’t sound right)


For the kids Refuge Ranch maintains a playground for them to live out their adventures as traveling bards and modern day starved musicians hanging on for dear life. Also expect face painting, or in this case, every kid needs a mustache!


We’ll have outdoor activities such as sand volleyball, and Mondo Croquet. Be sure to bring your own bowling ball or you can buy one of ours! If organized things are not your interest, then bring a hula hoop, or buy one from our friend Apryl! There will be enough green space for those of the frisbee tossing persuasion, or even football if you insist.

Also there will be a few local artists displaying their works, plenty of musician merch for sale, and of course the ever popular donation box! We can’t get enough of donation boxes!!!

“But what if it rains, what if it storms, should I quiver in fear in my house in the fetal position” you say? Although some of these activities might not be as fun, the stage is in the barn. Nothing short of a tornado is going to stop our resolve to bring you one of the finest musical displays the Springfield countryside has ever seen!
