Troubadour ExperienceThe Troubadour Experience brings its George Strait tribute to The Lounge on Friday, June 2, with shows at 8 pm and 10 pm.

Checker'd PastThen, on Saturday, June 3, the band Checker’d Past takes the stage from 8 pm to 1 am. If you love 1980’s music, you’ll love this show! Hailing from Yuma, band members have all played together for years and recently discovered a mutual love for ’80s music, resulting in forming the band Checker’d Past. The group performs lots of favorites from well-known 1980s one-hit wonders such as Men at Work, Madness, Thomas Dolby, and Modern English, along with favorite tunes from the bands Duran Duran, David Bowie, Devo, and more. Come and check out their show — it’ll be totally awesome!
