April's Lineup:


Squeezebox Bandits sound a whole lot like Texas. Their mix of Tejano and Country Music is a true reflection of their local upbringing. The co-frontmen of the group, Abel and Vincent, met as teenagers while playing a benefit concert at a jail in Fort Worth. The two grew up in the predominantly Hispanic North Side under the influence of a tapestry of cross-cultural music. Both men recall hearing radios blast everything from Tejano heavyweight Ramon Ayala to Nashville country star Dwight Yoakam.

"Tex-Mex music is influenced by traditional Mexican and American music, just like the food," according to Casillas. "It’s kind of like Spanglish. Tex-Mex and Tejano [music] are just about the same thing." The band's audience draws a wide and varied crowd, catering to Anglo, Mexican and Latin American music lovers.

Squeezebox Bandits of Fort Worth, have been bringing old honky-tonk music back and giving it a twist for over 5 years now. The band is led by front man Abel Casillas (vocals and accordion) and includes Geoff West (guitar), Austin Gardea (bass) and Matt Calderon (drums). Released on Cinco de Mayo this year, their third album "Check to Check" reflects that honky-tonk sound with a Tex-Mex flavor. All three of Squeezebox Bandits' albums are available now on all music streaming platforms. 


Born and raised right here in Texas, musician Mike Donnell is no stranger to the music scene. He enlisted in the Marines straight out of high school, putting his musical career on hold. Music had always been his passion but it wasn’t until he found a guitar in a house taken over by U.S forces in Iraq that he really started to develop his skills.

Since then, Mike, Aka “Sgt. Donnell,” has gone from pickin’ and singing with his Marine buddies overseas, to selling out venues and charting on regional radio. His music is full of passion, grit and real life experiences. Along with the vocal ability to raise the hair on your arms, his performance is high energy and always a good time. Mike and his band are known for their energetic performances and high-caliber musicianship.


'90s cover band, Poo Live Crew, plays it all.  “America’s Favorite Cover Band” will be gracing the stage for a night filled with keytar-led melodies, Evel Knievel jumpsuits and every greatest hits you could ever dream. 

The four members in Poo live Crew have been together for almost 17 years and cover all genres of music. Not only will your ears be delighted, but your '80s, '90s, and '2000s selves will too.


Rockabilly, Rock and Roll, Hot Rods, Drive-In movies, and Car Hops. Surf Music, Early Elvis, Soda Shops and Buddy Holly. It’s that classic sound and look of the '50s and '60s that influences the Texas-based band The Vinyl Stripes. 

Their skinny ties and porkpie hats may look like a thing of the past, but their harmonies and arrangements also feature modern melodies for listeners of all ages. The Vinyl Stripes’ music is rock and roll in its purest form, but with a modern take on your twist dancing days. 

The Vinyl Stripes will shake, rattle and roll the Heritage Park stage and give you a night to truly remember!
