The Poultry Days Social Tent Promises Another Great Weekend!

Poultry Days 2015 will continue with the largest party in the area and an incredible line of musicians. Nine live musical acts offer sounds ranging from familiar festival tunes to alternative rock, to popular country to solo acoustic. With a Social Tent that can hold 2,000 people you can choose to be up front by the music or at a quiet table by the craft bar. If you want to be in the sunshine or under the stars we will offer more table seating in 2015 with ten more freshly built picnic tables increasing our seating capacity to 200. When you want a cold beverage, the festival will offer our ice cold canned Mich-Ultra and Busch Light in addition to Bud Light. The craft bar will increase their flavors including Shock Top Lemon Shandy, Johnny Appleseed and Honkers Ale. If beer isn’t your thing, five flavors of “a-ritas” will be available at the craft bar and a wide selection of wines from The Winery at Versailles such as Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Muscatto, Sparkling, Rodeo Red as well as Sangria wine cocktails and wine/jello shots.

The progressive rock band was formed in 2013. Their debut EP, titled "Chaos", was released in September of 2014. Nikki Luttrell (vocals/keyboard) hails from a family of musicians, inheriting her father’s keyboard skills and her mother’s vocal abilities. Guitarist Chris Stewart also hails from a family of musicians, picking up the guitar at age five.

This group started out with Classic Rock and “Big Hair Band” rock. They soon expanded into popular grunge music other bands would not attempt to play.
