2nd Annual Celebration of the 1968 Original Festival
Starting in August 2016, the Loggers Bar & Grill put together an all day music and arts festival celebrating the largest outdoor music event in Sky Valley. With bands performing all day, a motorcycle show, on site tattoo artist, pin-up contest and more, the event sparked a revitalization of the original 1968 event.
A committee was formed, and worked through the year to bring a 2 stage event in 2017, a fundraiser for the 50th anniversary event in 2018.
The Logger Stage will feature live music Friday and Saturday night, as well as an open forum on Sunday, following an early morning of Texas Hold'em Poker at 11 am.
Musicians are invited to join Sunday afternoon for the Open Jam, on site recording will be offered free of charge for any musician who performs from RocketTree Records.

Hill country and delta influenced blues heard in the only way - stomping, slide guitar, hollering and story telling. Alabama-born and Southern-raised, Brett “Bad Blood” Benton recently left the city of Pensacola, FL to perform his hill country and delta style of blues around the country. Now living in in the Pacific Northwest, this 24-year-old artist has shared his soulful and southern style from Richmond, VA to Austin, TX and made it all the way up to Seattle, WA to make the same mark
Brew of Gypsys
Exceptionally talented and fun show to experience, Brew of Gypsys is a cover band performing, "Psychedelic Songs of Super Groups and One-Hit Wonders." Referred to as Psychedelic Groove rock, this group will enjoyably transform our Friday Night line-up from Delta Blues to Psychedelic late 60's, early 70's hits!
An amazing collection of musicians performing a variety of eclectic, catchy selection of music!
A fantastically talented group, who have dedicated so much to the music they perform. Spending more time in the "garage," working on material, they have become a mysterious, must hear band!
Scratch Daddy, playing the, "Blues & Beyond," with a little blend of R & B, Motown and Rock, this group will bring you an energetic dance-band that is fun & easy to listen to!
A resident favorite, hard working, and super high energy band, filled with some of the area's most rocking musicians. Front the crazy train'd front man, to the thundering drummer, in the pocket and slamming bassist and the electrical shredding of the lead guitarist.
