I’m back with some information on some live events happening throughout Gatlinburg. I have some more news on the many amazing things that will be occurring but I didn’t want to ramble on with a long post that may bore you, so I am going to break it up into a few posts over the next couple of days to keep it more focused.
The first such destination will spotlight a restaurant in downtown Gatlinburg located mainly upstairs above Johnny Rocket’s. I am talking about Loco Burro, who offers up Tex-Mex cuisine with some amazing views of the Smoky Mountains and downtown.
Their rooftop patio is the only such one in Gatlinburg, and it features its own bar, dining tables, and a fire pit. They are popular for this reason, and also because they make a killer margarita along with their tasty fajitas. If that doesn’t do it for you, they also feature their Bucking Burro, which you can ride for $5. Their items are freshly made from scratch daily, just like many of the restaurants in town, so you know what kind of quality you receive for the food.
Now that I have your attention, I would like to inform everyone that they are having a three day live concert on their patio featuring three different Nashville up-and-coming musicians on December 30, 31, and January 1.
Dark Waters will be performing at Loco Burro during this three day event. They are led on vocals by Cherish Hamby, who had her start playing and touring solo until she met Adam, a rap-core bandmember, and they quickly started developing their own unique sound. By 2014 they were playing as a four-piece band, and they are now preparing to release their first album in early 2016.
Chris Ashlee is another scheduled performer on these nights. He hails from San Antonio, Texas, and took the plunge by moving to Nashville in the summer of 2011 with the goal of becoming a hit songwriter. Ashlee has just released his new single, ‘Tipsy’, and has a five song EP being released with the hope that it will make his country music dreams become a reality.
Unfortunately, I was unable to provide any information for Nashville artist Jay Sweet, so if anyone has seen him perform live around Nashville, or if you can lead me to his Facebook or Twitter page, I would greatly appreciate the chance to get in contact with him somehow. Anyway, this should be a great three days of live music at Loco Burro. Don’t stray too far from my blog, as I will be providing some more new exciting events on tap for the New Year celebration in Gatlinburg.
