Schwagstock 48 Lineup Guide

Schwagstock 48, a weekend campout concert experience, takes place July 26th and 27th 2019 at Pulaski County Shrine Park in Waynesville’s Buckhorn neighborhood. The family-friendly music festival lineup features 9 bands on Mid-Missouri’s largest outdoor stage including The Schwag and Aaron Kamm and the One Drops, and Jaik Willis. The Dancing Bear Tribe performance artists will inspire festivalgoers through their performance art.

Schwagstock 48 July 26 & 27

THE SCHWAG

The Schwag is a band of musicians dedicated to carrying on the vibe and music of the legendary Grateful Dead. Founded in 1991 The Schwag has performed over 3000 concerts all over the United States. This group averages 150 shows a year and has a working song list of over 200 songs from the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band catalog. For four years band leader Jimmy Tebeau also toured the country as the bass player for JGB (Jerry Garcia Band).

During last year’s Schwagstock 47 the band jammed their way through two high-energy set lists on Friday and Saturday nights. Both performances ended with encores that escalated the good vibes and left the crowd both wanting more and exhausted. As special guest Brody Buster’s harmonica dueled with Sean’s guitar and Jimmy’s bass everyone was on their feet reveling the uniqueness. Saturday night’s encore brought special guest Julian Davis’ mandolin to the mix. The Schwag does not disappoint. Don’t miss their sets during Schwagstock 48- or you might be kicking yourself.

AARON KAMM AND THE ONE DROPS

Hailing from St. Louis, MO, Aaron Kamm and the One Drops merge flavors of Roots Reggae, Mississippi River Blues, Improv-laced Jams, and Soulful Vocals. With their high-energy performance and unique sound, Aaron Kamm and the One Drops are a must see.

THE DRIFTAWAYS

The Driftaways are a 7-piece Reggae/Rock band from the St. Louis area. The unique mix of classic Jamaican styles such as Ska, Reggae, Roots, and Dub with a Blues-Rock twist give The Driftaways their one-of-a-kind sound. Amazing stage presence, soulful vocals, and a refreshingly creative sound are quickly making The Driftaways one of the hottest Reggae acts in the Midwest.

THE KAY BROTHERS

California, Missouri brothers form a band saluting the music traditional to their homeland: The Ozarks… where Old-Time Fiddle music received a quick flash fry of foot stompin’ Country Blues as it made its way across the Mississippi River. The songs are a collection of stories, often ancient in verse but timeless in meaning, and delivered with sunny reverence for this forgotten music bred to uplift from the tangle of struggles in a bygone era. It’s music that prefers to draw you out, rather than draw you in.

In 2018, The Kay Brothers released their Self-Titled Debut Album and a companion video for their song, “Find Your Love,” recorded in an abandoned auto garage somewhere in Callaway County. Joined by Molly Healey and Roger Netherton on fiddles as well as “Shakin’ Jake” Allen on percussion, the Kay Brothers boast sibling harmonies, upright bass, guitar, tenor banjo, fiddle, harmonica, cello, washboard, congas, shakers, and an array of foot percussion. The mission: to preserve the rural music of our forefathers and mothers that used to fill the wooden barns that once dotted countryside on Saturday night and the small family churches on Sunday morning. That party is still going on…. it’s in your blood.

DRIFTERS MILE

Born from the Ozark Mountains, Drifters Mile plays, sings, and writes folk music in a Country and Bluegrass Style. Drifters Mile got started in the winter of ’09, as the band “Deep Fried Squirrel” four guys in a trailer out in a field playing an odd mix of bluegrass, rock and funk. They grew into a full-on grassrock band. Then, through a few line-up changes, some moving around of other members, they slimmed down to a five-piece string band ready to start a new wave.

BROTHER FRANCIS AND THE SOULTONES

Brother Francis and the Soultones is a band of friends who play music because it makes everyone happy. If it rocks, funks, or soothes the soul, the Soultones will be laying it down. Ryan Benthall, the Keyboardist/organist/vocals, is a graduate of UMSL’s music school and an accomplished player around town. Somewhere between Herbie Hancock and a mad romantic composer, Ryan adds a touch of class and ton of soul. Jacob Zengerling, Bassist/vocals, is a stylistic chameleon. A powerhouse when the moments right, or light as a feather if it brings it all together. Taylor Perkins, Drums, is a multi-instrumentalist with a knack for elevating those around him. His supportive, foundational playing easily moves in and out of different feels and textures. Brother Francis, Guitar/vocal, is an eccentric performer and talented songwriter. His songs come to life when the Soultones all begin to play. Fans have reported being immediately hypnotized by the pure joy radiating from the Soultones; creating an infectious experience that brings people to their feet.

ROUBIDOUX SPRING- Reward yourself with a dip in the spring! Waynesville’s public spring has been cooling off travelers, visitors, and locals since the earliest days of westward expansion. Legend states that if you dip your toes in the spring, or even dive in, that someday you will return to Waynesville. Mayor Luge Hardman encourages you to test this theory! Located just off Historic Route 66 at Laughlin Park. (Please do not dive off the wall/fence.)

Roubidoux-Spring-

FLOAT- A trip into the heart of the Ozarks would not be complete without a canoe or kayak trip on the Gasconade or Big Piney rivers. Don’t wish to haul your kayaks to Schwagstock? Any of Pulaski County’s outfitters will gear you up for your float trip adventure!

Canoes by Garden State Hiker

TRAIL OF TEARS MEMORIAL- During the forced removal of the Cherokee from their homelands in Georgia to what is now Oklahoma two detachments stopped and camped at Roubidoux Spring in what is now Laughlin Park. The National Park Service, Trail of Tears Association, and City of Waynesville have partnered together to place interpretive signage between the spring and the river ford. The signage depicts the tragic tale- and is a somber reminder of a disturbing era of our past.

IMG_4466

FOR THE YOUNGSTERS & YOUNG AT HEART- Kiddos and families will love the Splash Park and Little Heroes All-Accessible Playground at Waynesville City Park. Waynesville City Park is nestled on the banks of the Roubidoux River and provides river access.

MUSEUMS ON THE SQUARE- Waynesville’s public square is home to two National Register of Historic Places landmarks that operate as museums. The Old Stagecoach Stop, on the east side of the square began as a stagecoach stop in the late 1850’s. Throughout its life it has served as a tavern, a Civil War hospital, and a hotel. The 1903 Courthouse Museum was designed by Henry H. Hohenschild who served as Missouri State Architect. The brick building housed Pulaski County’s governmental operations into the 1990’s. The upstairs courtroom, mostly in original condition, is a stunning display of skilled craftsmanship and early 20th century design and function. Both museums will be open Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Admission is free, however donations are appreciated

ROUTE 66 COMMUNITY ART GALLERY-  Located in a period Route 66 building that first housed Weber’s Appliance, Route 66 Community Art Gallery celebrates all things Route 66. The gallery features paintings, photography, drawings, and sculpture work of local and international artists. The gallery is also a favorite place to pick up Route 66 books and memorabilia.

FROG ROCK- Also known as W.H. (Waynesville Hill) Croaker this quirky rock sculpture has been delighting Route 66 travelers since 1996. An Instagram-worthy selfie with Frog Rock is becoming a Route 66 rite of passage. (Please do not climb on W.H. Croaker.)

Waynesville__PulaskiCounty_MO_001_Cropped_1046x380

ROUTE 66- Waynesville is the birthplace of the byway! Missouri was the first state to enact legislation designating the former Mother Road as a historic district. The bill was signed by Governor Ashcroft in Waynesville July 10, 1990. Today the legendary highway is a bucket list road trip for adventurers around the globe.
