As of 9:50pm tonight, I have 37 seats filled on the Spectator bus! Very excited to have you aboard!!! And we have 77 tickets sold – this is amazing!! I’m so excited to have so many of you attending this great event!!

If you have not yet ordered your tickets for bus, show and tailgate, please go to the link and sign up.


If you have trouble with the link, please try to copy and paste it into your browser and launch. If you cannot access, please send me an email with the number of tickets and which food choice(s) for tailgate. Tickets are $30 for bus, $30 for show ticket (these will be $36 at door, children under 34” are admitted free).

Please have your band member order online for the tailgate!! We are looking to provide the pit crew with the accurate numbers for food. You are welcome to send your band member(s) with their own food, but if you plan to have them eat at the tailgate, please order online.

I will be compiling the final list tomorrow and starting to put together the packets for pick up Thursday.
