This amazing 11-piece horn band features several area entertainers including Bucky Heard of the Blues Brothers at Legends in Concert and Gary Myers, lead guitarist and Emcee for Mickey Gilley.  The Dawgs don’t just put on a great show, they give you a great EXPERIENCE.

Following the concert, enjoy an incredible fireworks exhibition produced by Gateway Fireworks Displays. From the choreographed opening to the Signature Grand Finale, the 6th Annual Liberty Light Up promises an unforgettable display.  AND…after the fireworks, stick around while The Horn Dawgs take the stage for an encore performance to end the evening.
