Bacchus Brothers
bacchusbrothers.com
This trio of Mark Clarin, Ray Merrill(see - there he is again), and Don Veca are Two Day Town favorites who put the "unk" in "funk" in a seemingly effortless congruence of rock, jazz, blues, funk, reggae, and country. The trio sometimes introduces new artists to our stage, so come on down and see what talent they have discovered in the past year!.
Big Sticky Mess
bigstickymess.com
We liked these guys so much in 2014 & 2015 that we begged them to come back in 2016! Jonny Blaze, Black Pat, and Juan Carlos describe their style as a "kaleidoscopic mix of extraterrestrial hooks, vibrant grooves, and potent beats." But don't just listen to their show - the costumes alone are worth the price of admission.

That's it for Friday's Main Stage, but there will be music all over Two Day Town through the evening.
Wander around to the bonfire and other camps for an evening of jams.
The playing will continue late into the night, but please remember that park rules require no drumming after 10 PM.

Saturday Nap Time at the Amphitheater

Take a break! Relax and refresh yourself, or head to the Second Stage
at the public campground amphitheater for some fine unplugged music.



Nap Time!
3:00 - 6:00 PM
Right after our Main Stage afternoon music ends there will be acoustic music at the public campground amphitheater. The Nap Time session started out as a 'second stage' experiment several years ago and has become an integral part of Two Day Town. Take the paved path toward the main gate, follow it to the campground, then follow the signs to the amphitheater. It's about a 15 minute walk, or catch the shuttle from the peninsula between the parking lots (occasional round trips).

Returning to Two Day Town for a second year, the F Street Stompers blend syncopated rhythms and high energy jigs of the early 1900s ragtime with classic upbeat toe-tappers.

There will be jams all over Two Day Town at campsites and at the fire pit, for hours to come.
Remember that all drumming has to stop at 10 PM to comply with our agreement with park management.

Chris Ahlman
chrisahlman.com
Chris is an acoustic, pop, folk, and rock songwriter who genuinely tries to spread positivity with his music. Quoting Chris; “My music is focused towards inspiring people to think about life and the world that we live in from a positive and good perspective.” Sounds like a good plan to us.

Chris Head
Chris on facebook.com
Chris plays a blend of Americana, blues, and folk, with a tinge of country for a sweet sound with an extra tang. You've seen him on our stages as a solo performer and with bluesy Americana band Tank Half Full. We're glad to have him back.

The Lost Cats

Sunday on the lawn just wouldn't be the same without Jim Passard and friends and their smooth, jazzy interpretations of a wide array of material, all delivered seamlessly. Jim's smoky vocalizing and his band's exquisite musicianship is very satisfying to music aficionados and passers-by alike.
Groove.Org
markholzinger.com/groove
The sizzling talents of virtuoso guitarist Mark Holzinger and percussionist John Waller have helped wrap up Two Day Town every year. They describe their sound as "searing rock and roll as well as getting psychedelic with melodic motif's reaching middle ground acid jazz with a funky groove." You never know if they're going to throw in surf music, rockabilly, or even TV themes, and it's different every time.

That's All Folks....Until Next Year
Please Remember - Leave No Trace, and please No Glass anywhere at Two Day Town!
