(OMAHA, Neb. – June 19, 2015) – Bridge Beats is going country for the second event of the summer. Matt Cox Band and Belles & Whistles are both recipients of the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Award for country, Americana and folk. Children and parents alike will appreciate the talent on stage!
Matt Cox Band brings a live performance that showcases some of the best players in the region, and a raw energy that reveals the passion and experience that friends share with each other on stage and off. Whether you crave the guitar driven jams of the Allman Brothers, the story telling of Dylan, or the country charm of Willie Nelson, The Matt Cox Band is sure to deliver!
Belles & Whistles, a mother/daughter, singer/songwriter duo, are building a strong industry buzz; already sharing stages with Kenny Rogers, Brett Eldridge, Jerrod Niemann, Scotty McCreery and many others. The duo has played for audiences all over the country at fairs, festivals, clubs, radio shows and writer’s rounds. Belles & Whistles enjoy connecting to audiences with their personal lyrics, strong harmonies and genuine performances, as the audience shares in their onstage chemistry and their joy in performing.
Bridge Beats shows are every other Friday night beginning June 12, and ending September 18 at the base of the pedestrian bridge on the Nebraska riverfront. The family friendly concerts begin at 6:00pm and run until 9:30pm.
