The Way Station Presents
The Byrds Sweetheart of the Rodeo Tribute
Five Bands Reinterpret This Seminal 1968 Release 
 Saturday, August 30, 2014, 9pm-12am, $5 suggested donation 
The Way Station continues their Tribute Series by honoring trailblazers of rock ‘n' roll, The Byrds, by celebrating the 46th anniversary (to the day) of their release of Sweetheart Of The Rodeo on Saturday, August 30th from 9pm-12am.
Performing the entire Legacy Edition of the record will be Jordan Renzi, The Sensational Country Blues Wonders, The Cornell Brothers, Bourbon Express and The DiveBombers. Don't miss a single track as re-imagined by these most reverential performers.
From folk rock to psychedelic hippie pop, The Byrds were pioneers of rock ‘n' roll from the start. However it wasn't until 1968, when they hitched their wagon to Gram Parsons, that they left their indelible mark on American music with their seminal album, Sweetheart of the Rodeo. The traditional forms of folk, bluegrass and gospel laid the foundation for the very first major country rock album, and forged the creation of what became known as “Cosmic American Music”.
