JONATHAN BYRD & THE PICKUP COWBOYS are musical gunslingers, vaudevillian hucksters, and old-fashioned tent revivalists. Between heartbreaking ballads and hell-raising sing-alongs, the Cowboys entertain, inspire, and get audiences involved in the show. Jonathan Byrd is a preacher’s son, a Gulf War veteran, and an award-winning songwriter from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Fifteen years into his music career, Byrd’s songs are campfire favorites at folk festivals. The Chicago Tribune called Byrd “one of the top 50 songwriters of the past 50 years.”
Classical revolution has been a growing phenomenon throughout the US and abroad. The idea is to make the music more accessible to a wider ranged audience in a more relaxed setting, hence being hosted by a restaurant. Classical music to be enjoyed as you eat, drink, and socialize!
