Evening Music: The Shootouts

 Saturday, August 15, 2020 
7:00pm-8:30pm  
Steele Memorial Bandstand

The Shootouts return to Lakeside with their acoustic trio to perform a concert of heartfelt, authentic country music.

Their debut album, Quick Draw, is an effortless blend of high-energy honky-tonk and traditional country music, mixed with touches of Americana and western swing.

The band marries a blend of Roy Orbison and Bob Wills with the barn-burning sounds of Dwight Yoakam. The combination offers a welcome throwback to sounds that flowed out of Nashville, Texas and California in country music’s golden years.

The acoustic version of the band includes Ryan Humbert (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Brian Poston (electric and acoustic guitar) and Emily Bates (harmony vocals).

Based out of Akron, The Shootouts were formed when founding members Humbert and Poston bonded over a mutual love of country music. The group had its first show in 2016. It was meant to be a side-project for Humbert, but he soon realized there was much more in store.

Since then, The Shootouts have shared the stage with a veritable who’s who of artists, including Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello, Zac Brown Band, Chris Isaak, Jim Lauderdale and more.

Masks required. Please practice safe social distancing. While some seating is provided in Bettinger Park, guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets. In the case of inclement weather, this event will be cancelled. Please note change of time due to earlier sunset.
