Dirty Shame Saloon


 Outlaw Jim & The Whiskey Benders
Performing Wednesday and Thursday  9:00 pm - 1:00 am

The Whiskey Benders is a hard-hitting, traditional outlaw country band with roots in the sounds of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, as well as influences from New Orleans funk and street music. The music has been labeled by some, "Poly-ethnic Cajun Slamgrass". 
Jim Eaton is the band leader, lending his unique and powerful vocals as well as rhythm guitar; Mark Brown covers the Bass and back-up vocals; Paul Andrews provides "the outlaw beat"; and Franklin Eaton stands on the keyboards and back-up vocals; usually,
 there will be a fiddle, mandolin, Telecaster, or pedal-steel player (or all of the above) in the group.
The band formed in the fall of 2003 with Jim, Mark, and Paul. In spring of 2004, Franklin joined, and the band solidified to the current setup. From hog roasts and concerts on the courthouse steps to the stages of Lower Broadway and the Opry Plaza, the Whiskey Benders have been growing a following throughout the South and Mid-West.


Performing Friday & Saturday  9:00 pm - 1:00 am

County Road 5 started in with Dusty and a high school friend performing in their hometown, Basehor, KS, at local bars and restaurants.  Then they decided to make a few phone calls and round up the rest of the band.  Well, 9 years later County Road 5 s still our pounding the pavement performing throughout the Midwest at Fairs, Festivals, Bars, Amphitheaters, pretty much anywhere that will let them perform! The hit song "Drink I couldn't handle" was #1 on Texas Radio for 11 weeks straight last Fall among other songs that ranked in the Top 100 of the year, from the same album.  They recorded a live album at The Legendary Hilltop Bar in Tonganoxie, KS, known for its wild nights and a packed house of music hungry County Road 5 fans.  With two albums under their belt, they are anxiously waiting the arrival of their third album "Asphalt & Whiskey", to be the best music they have to offer to date!
