13th Annual Rockabilly Chili adds Split Lip Rayfield to the line up
Music, food and fun for the whole family
Already guaranteed to be a day of fun and food, WMSE is turning up the heat at its 13th Annual Rockabilly Chili fundraiser with the addition of one of the best bluegrass bands in the country to the line up – Split Lip Rayfield.
Hailing from Wichita, Kan., this three-piece scorcher of a band played the WMSE Backyard BBQ last year and blew the crowd away with their hard-paced bluegrass. Bassist Jeff Eaton plays a standup bass that is made out of a gas tank with one string from a weed wacker and affectionately calls it the “Stitch Giver.” Joined by Eric Mardis on banjo and Wayne Gottstine on mandolin, they’ve created a sound that appeal to fans of Flatt & Scruggs and Metallica.
Advance tickets are $12 and include 4 chili samples. Additional chili sampling tickets can be purchased at the event for $1 each. Bring two or more non-perishable food items to donate to the Hunger Task Force and you’ll receive two additional sample tickets. Children 10 years or younger are FREE.
This is the hottest event in town to kick off the spring season.
