Location

Tumbleweed Music Festival

7095 W 399th St, Lacygne, KS 66040

Click Here for an aerial view of the festival venue from Google Maps!

Located just just south of Kansas City and easily accessible from Highway 69, the Tumbleweed Music Festival site is a perfect combination of convenience and stunning aesthetics.

Nestled within a 2,600 acre nature preserve, Tumbleweed is a hot spot for fishing, canoeing, archery and hunting. Stunning lakefront views and mature trees flank the Tumbleweed Main Stage and camping areas. Acres of a manicured forest with natural spring-fed creeks accent the rolling terrain. Despite the area’s broad sweeping terrain, the Tumbleweed footprint is small – you’re always just steps from Main Stage, camping and amenities.

Festival attendees can expect an incredibly convenient and comfortable experience. Leave the rest to the music, drinks and dancing!

Tumbleweed is Closer than You Think!

Tumbleweed is located 45 minutes from downtown Kansas City – an easy drive from many Heartland cities!!

This map shows a 5-hour drive radius:

5-hour drive

So this listing here is how you can purchase tickets for this event, and then after that I’m going to include some hotel information so you can leave and have a nice warm bed, and an air conditioned room. MANY local hotels offer free breakfasts and many other luxuries the field crowd won’t have. HOWVER THIS YEAR there WILL BE showers.

I will be adding many things in the next few months in many aspects of this festival, so you should check back on this one weekly for news, info and videos. I work VERY closely with directors.

I’m Here tonight at Dee’s Country Cocktail Lounge out here in Madison Tennessee, one of my favorite live Music venues in the area. Tonight as I begin my July vacation I’ll be busy watching The Bucksnort Beauties  Miss Tommy Ash and another band I have never featured before called Patrick Kinsley And A Fistful Of Dollars.

This venue went through some changes since the last time I was here and some of them were for the best. They expanded the menu now, the last time I had their Italian Beef sandwich and I LOVED IT. Tonight’s show began later so I ate beforehand, but had a later snack. They now have table numbers like the Palace does, and I noticed they had a pretty cool POS system there.

They moved the jukebox and the wall of records to another spot on the bar, and they still play decent REAL MUSIC when the bands aren’t playing. I pretty much had no complaints about the entire evening whatsoever, and will of course continue to come here for shows when I can. YOU MUST go see Mr. Joe my big buddy and tip him good please, we have been friends many years. Many good stories of being around him, and many good bands were enjoyed around him. Also Miss Amy Dee Richardson whom also bar tends, stop and see them BOTH, watch some Dukes Of Hazzard on the TV or Bonanza and hear some REAL Country Music. I give this place FIVE STARS, MUCH better menu and FUN!

OK So I ran a contest that night and it stated that anyone whom guessed where I was going to go eat would be mentioned in this article. It was my good friend Miss Gail Norman and she works at Roberts Western World and also here in Springfield at Willie Mae’s Barbecue. So when you are in my area go stop and see her, and say hello because the food is wonderful, and please tell her I said hello.

The Bucksnort Beauties were up to play first, and played several new songs, and I’ll be including several videos from those songs. One of their new singles that’s not on their EP called “Wildfire And Moonshine” was called “Cockadoodledoo”and you can read more about that album HERE. I took two videos from their performance tonight including their live performance of “Cockadoodledoo” and another called “Chuckwagon”.

Now the second video Chuckwagon got off to little rough start but dammit it was a dog gone fine song they have new there, and like last time they did a truly fine job up there tonight. Another new song they included was called “Get Down To It”,which was a pretty well written song.

Their first song was indeed one from their EP called Zachiriah Head” and that song was followed by the ever popular “Good Bad Girls” full of those gorgeous Bucksnort Beauties harmonies that one associates with this band.  They followed that song up with “Good Bad Girls” which is also on the EP.

Aw the hell with all y’all, they done went “Back To Arkansas” tonight before they  played “Boom Chicka Boom”. And one of my personal favorite songs called “Spit On the Diamond” and make it shine baby, because they are pretty much “Country Like That”.

They closed their set with a song I liked called “Whiskey Tonight”which I did indeed imbibe in as I am beginning to enjoy my vacation this week, as I prepare more Tumbleweed work and work for Muddy Roots as well.

Miss Tommy Ash WOW…I’m speechless. She brought a huge powerhouse band that displayed a Bakersfield influence as well as old style Honky Tonk. I have indeed admired her music for some time now, but until now have yet to see her live, nor have I ever had the chance to feature her on the website.

FINALLY I got to get some stuff from her and write about her music, I’m telling you cover songs don’t always make me go crazy,but when you start playing Bob McDill written Don Williams songs as rare as “She’s In Love With A Rodeo Man” you got my attention.

But see she opened with a song off her 2013 album called “Sinner’s Blood” in fact, that said album is called Sinner’s Blood, and she followed that up with a song called “When I’m Gone”. Here is a video from her set tonight featuring that very song. I mean I FOCUSED ON IT, just LISTEN to that guitar tone and that twang. I think this guitarist truly embellishes her vocals and their combined stage presence is nothing short of “right hand man” type of function so many big names had in history.

“Trip To The Moon” was next, which featured some truly amazing songwriting skills. BUT FOLKS this next song I wished I would have caught on video. I mean what is a Honky Tonk show without a drinking song like “Sugar In A Bottle”? I mean THIS SONG is COUNTRY as HELL! There is a steel guitar lick in this song that was so cool I kept turning back to it several times, I was blessed enough to get to sit and chat with Tommy’s husband (and lead guitarist) Mr. Ben Blanc Dumont and Miss Tommy herself. He had to stop during a Dwight Yoakam song and admire a certain steel guitar lick like I do, so you CAN FEEL the passion they have for this genre. It’s NOT just some show they play for tips, you can easily ascertain they do this for the LOVE of Country Music.

Her next song was a Delbert McClinton song that was recorded in 1976 by EmmyLou Harris called “Two More Bottles Of Wine” however if you are not an aficionado like we are, you might not even notice it’s a cover song at all. I overheard someone say WOW that’s a well written song she has..hmmm. The general public amazes me sometimes but nonetheless they enjoyed her.

“Ain’t Cha Mama” was next followed by “Lost It All” and possibly one called ‘sold The Farm” I’m not totally sure of the name of that one, however she did effectively alter “Only Momma That’ll Walk The Line” and closed her set with “Keeping The House”. Altogether I would have to say THIS WAS one of the better sets overall I have been to so far in 2017, I am BLOWN AWAY by her power to lead such gifted band members like that. The timing was impeccable and the key modulations were flawless, not ONCE did anybody loose pace. Accompanying her and her husband are Mr. Brandon Goldstein on drums and Mr. Jeff Malinowski on bass guitar.

Patrick Kinsley And A Fistful Of Dollars was a four piece Country Rock band that I also have never witnessed before, I HAVE heard of them however. Mr. Patrick has some gritty vocals aged much more than his physical body, accompanied by hard rocking guitar tones and good beat.

“Rattling The Cage” was first an outlaw story of his father who had to take care of a loose lipped tattle tale from the eyes of himself as a child. Kind of a modern day “Coward Of The County” type deal about learning from your parent’s mistakes.

This man has pretty well written lyrics and some twisted stories with some truly good hooks. “Between Heaven” was next followed by another good one called “Bethlehem”.   So, now this video is from a song called “Don’t Wanna Fight” and I enjoyed this song VERY MUCH.

See I related WELL to this song. I’m too old for that fighting bullshit no more, and I don’t party and drink like I used to..those days are over with. I defiantly need to sit and chat with these boys further one day in the future and you can DAMN sure bet I will be seeking them out later on. There were some lead guitar licks in this song that were great, and it truly spoke out for the soldiers that don’t wanna fight no more. He truly has empathy for our men and women over there fighting for our right to be there enjoying music.

“Little Tin House” was next followed by ‘Holding What We Got”. They closed their set with “Poison” and a song called “A Little Further North”.
