The big city is about to get a taste of the country.
The party will feature a tribute show to honky-tonk legend Waylon Jennings, in honor of his 71st birthday, and country music bands from all over Brooklyn will play some of Jennings’s most popular songs.
On the bill are folk guitarist Jon Itkin, Sean Kershaw, Serena Jean and The Whiskey Trippers, and The Newton Gang, as well as performances by Uncle Leon of The Alibis, Alex Battles of Whiskey Rebellion, and more.
“If you know [Waylon Jennings’s] music, then you’re going to have a great time,” said JD Duarte of The Newton Gang (pictured) and co-director of BrooklynCo
