FRIDAY, MAY 5th
SESSION I: 6:00 P.M. – 10:00 P.M.
Looking for a cure for what musically ales you? Brewtopia has you covered! Born from a love of beer and all things musical in 2014, Brewtopia has been mashing up a tun of rock and roll from the decade that began to release us all from the chains of the conformist beer—the 1990’s. With an addition of a few classics and a unique spin on tunes from today, Brewtopia’s stout musical vision make it more than just a common band.
We live in one of the best times for beer lovers. Brewtopia strives to provide the soundtrack to the total beer experience. Those who see a Brewtopia show are guaranteed to tip their glass to a cascade of good music.
Jon Bonham & Friends
Jon Bonham has been leading a band of Friends around Saint Louis for over ten years. His music blends garage band Americana with soulful takes on juke joint country, folk rock and blues. Bonham’s distinct voice “recalls a love-child of Kris Kristofferson and Tom Waits” while his musical references can all be traced back to Robert Zimmerman.
