Shenandoah, Shooter Jennings to play in Sauk Rapids

June 10--SAUK RAPIDS -- Rollie's Rednecks and Longnecks is continuing its efforts to book national music acts by bringing Grammy-winning country music group Shenandoah to town this week.

And on Father's Day, the venue will host a famous son -- musician Shooter Jennings, whose father was the late country icon Waylon Jennings. He'll perform with Waymore's Outlaws.

Shenandoah formed in 1984 out of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, according to the band's website. The band scored a number of hits throughout the '80s and '90s, including "Two Dozen Roses," "The Church on the Cumberland Road" and "If Bubba Can Dance (I Can Too)." The group has been through several incarnations.

Rollie's Manger Tanya Teichert says the venue has been drawing more national acts, and through the owner's contacts and word of mouth, more bands are interested.

For the Shenandoah show, there are standing room tickets ($20) and seats ($40), Teichert said.

And while that's an indoor show, the Shooter Jennings and Waymore's Outlaws is an outside event. Tickets are $25, and Teichert said Rollie's will sell only 1,000.

That show is June 15, Father's Day, and Shooter is expected to tell some stories about his famous dad and play some of his songs, too. Teichert noted that June 15 also is Waylon Jennings' birthday; he died in 2002.

"It's kind of a real neat day that we'll do a whole big celebration of it," Teichert said.

Waymore's Outlaws features some former members of Waylon Jennings' recording and touring band, The Waylors, according to the Waymore's Outlaws website.
