Beer, BBQ, & Boots

April 20th 6-9PM

Throw on your boots and buckles and come to the Garden for extended hours to dance the night away! Whiskey Pines from Southern Pines will be performing live all night! Enjoy BBQ from My Daddy’s BBQ food truck and craft beer from our cash bar!

Whiskey Pines is an acoustic collective of top tier musicians and the brainchild of Tim Stelmat. Our sound can be best described as acoustic rock with a touch of folk and classic rock licks. Tim’s perfect cadence and aforementioned jazzy slap strumming technique create a groove anyone can move to. Bobby’s searing harmonica riffs and acoustic leads round off the tone sonically. There is a little something for everyone to enjoy. We cover music from the 60’s to today with our own acoustic spin, including several medleys to keep the energy going and less downtime between songs. Currently, Whiskey Pines as Tim Stelmat, Bobby Hancock, and part time guitarist Patrick Fuller are still playing 150 or more shows per year at clubs, private parties, restaurants, bars, theme parks, festivals, and special events.
