The Hometown Hootenanny is going all top of the radio bandwidth with its Saturday concert, “On the Radio.”
The Hootenanny will play today’s current country hits, leaving the classics behind.
This show is all about modern country songs and songwriters, including the talents of Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and Eli Young.
A young singer and a past crowd pleaser, Dakota Neuman, returns to perform two songs with the Hometown Band. Other local fan favorites include The Troy Fair Band who play a brand of rocking country, and the folk duo, Tree Nine, known for a repertoire of harmonious hits, according to press material.
There will be lots of hits but a few you can expect to hear are “Big Green Tractor,” “One of Those Nights” and “Beer Money.”
“On the Radio” begins 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Historic Everett Theatre, 2911 Colby Ave., Everett.
Tickets are $16.50 for adults, $13 for seniors/students/military, and $5 for kids 12 and under. Go online at brownpapertickets.com or call 425-258-6766. The box office opens at 6:30 p.m. the day of the show.
