Blackwater Railroad Company is celebrating over 10 years of making music. BWRR's raucous live shows were born out of wild, blurry, Alaskan winter nights. Through the years, Blackwater has had the privilege of gaining the love of Alaska and sharing their music all over the 49th State. Playing on the top of mountains, next to towering glaciers, and afloat out in the Gulf of Alaska. Performing from Nome to Haines, Fairbanks to Seward, on the Highway and off, touring most of the lower 48 and the band's second home of Hawaii. BWRR will rolling out new songs and some new faces as the sound continues to grow. They have added Braden Astoria-Rollins on sax and Will Balcao on drums! With Canada on the horizon and new Alaskan towns on the schedule, BWRR's 11th Summer Tour is going to be the most adventurous one yet. Come to the show and let's dance! 

Anchorage, get ready to rock with local favorites, The Jangle Bees! With a classic rock sound infused with their own songwriting flair, The Jangle Bees have become a staple in the Alaskan music scene. This four-piece band is known for their high energy and exceptional guitar skills. Their vocal harmonies and original lyrics add an extra layer of depth to their dynamic performances. Fresh off recording their latest album of original tracks, The Jangle Bees are ready to rock harder than ever before! 

Alternative, sad angst. Alaskans show out for Zane Penny in our hometown. Zane’s whole-package presentation raises the eyes of young 20-something shoe-gazers looking to connect. His performance is honest and grungy, yet tender. 

Anchorage Concert Association is the only authorized seller of tickets to this show.
