    Snootch (formerly Steam Funk)

    Warehouse 25 - Thurday 7:00

    Snootch makes their way to Grand Junction's newest bar, Warehouse 25. You may not realize it, but you've seen Snootch before. They used to go by the name Steam Funk.

    It's a new name, but it's the same killer band. Bill "Kleenex-In-The-Nose" Moody still fronts on Sax. Don't miss a chance to enjoy live music before the weekend officially rolls in.

    Desert Flyer Band

    Central Station - Saturday - 8:30

    The mighty Desert Flyer Band returns to Central Station for a great night of new Country, Classic Country, Southern Rock, and plenty of Oldies.

    If you love Country dance, this is your gig. Hit the guys up for a Waltz, or maybe a Two-Step. If you're into newer Country, they have you covered there, too. Southern Rock... absolutely.

    Central Station has the biggest, best dance floor in the valley. When the band is off stage, DJ Solo has you covered with your favorite dance music.

    Goodman Unplugged

    Palisade Brewing Company - Saturday - 7:00 - 10:00

    Goodman Unplugged, an acoustic version of the Goodman Band, comes to Palisade for a night of Country, Rock, and Blues.

    Do yourself a favor, and while you're at it, a favor for Gerry, and hit him up for some Johnny Cash. You'll make his night.
