Conroe Americana Music Festival to take over Downtown Conroe The Conroe Americana Music Festival is moving along quickly to becoming a high-energy explosion with a confirmation of over 50 bands from throughout the state and beyond on May 5-7, 2017 in Downtown Conroe. The Conroe Downtown Area Association will hold the inaugural event at six venues, Martin’s Event Hall, The Corner Pub, The Red Brick Tavern, Conroe Sparkle Event Hall, and 2 temporary outdoor tents to be set up on Main Street at Metcalf and Metcalf at Thompson. Since all the venues are within a 2-3 block walking distance in the Downtown Conroe shopping/restaurant square, participants are able to wander throughout the area to hear a plethora of musical talent playing bluegrass, rockabilly, folk, outlaw country, and Southern Texas Country. Even a little indie, Southern Rock! Bands confirmed include Carolyn Wonderland, Billie Joe Shaver, Dale Watson/Ray Benson, Ruthie Foster, Bruce Robison/Kelly Willis, Green River Ordinance, The Peterson Brothers, BettySoo, The Mastersons. Charlie Faye and the Fayettes, Hard Luck Revival, Band of Heathens, Folk Family Revival, Bart Crow, Uncle Lucius, The O;s, Ray Bonneville, Nikki Hill, Nick Verzosa, Mike Farris, Two Tons of Steel, Dirty River Boys, The Shady Rest Band, Bottom Dollar String Dollar, The Offenders, Lost and Nameless, and the Chubby Knuckles Choir. For the full line up see the website. “As the Mayor of Conroe, I’m very proud of our Downtown Area Association for creating the Conroe Americana Music Festival and welcome all to come and enjoy the hospitality”, said Mayor Toby Powell.
