WEIRD OLD SKUNK PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS
THE SKUNKY PRECIOUS WILD WEST CIRCUS @ THE BLUESTONE, FRIDAY, JUNE 1ST
“You know, traditional country music is something that's going to be around forever.”
For the first time ever, we are going to show the city just what it means to be country in Columbus!
The Wild West Circus, the city’s first honky-tonk extravaganza will showcase the city’s greatest C&W talents against the backdrop of the beautiful and historic Bluestone’s (formerly BOMA) majestic altar/stage.
Columbus’ country music scene is as diverse as it is unique, and in the style of the Grand Ol’ Opry shows of Nashville fame, an assortment of styles will take the stage, from Bakersfield to honky-tonk, country swing to mountain troubadour, bluegrass to scorchin’ hot outlaw country – and every twang of it genuine local Columbus music!

+=These people are dead, and won’t really be there. We hope they come in spirit, even if poltergeistly
This ain’t your radio country, ladies and gents. You ain’t gonna hear no Rascal Flatts covers here. Pure throwback country from those that relish the lonesome warble of Hank Williams, Sr., or the stomp-em-whup-em rebel stylings of Waylon Jennings, as well as plenty of homegrown original country.
We’re also gonna have a mechanical bull, two-step contest, arm-wrestling tournament, raffles and giveaways, and many more surprises!
