Dodge City Days performances at Central Station

Central Station Bar and Grill continues the Dodge City Days tradition this year with a lineup of exciting performances.

The Dodge City Days celebration will kickoff at Central Station on July 27 where they will provide hors d’oeuvres for $12, a cash bar and and a lapel pin. Additionally, the Rebein Brothers will present the annual Bronco Buster Award to the 2017 recipient. Reservations are required for this event and can be made by contacting the Dodge City Area Chamber of Commerce.

To kick everything off, Roger Creager will perform on July 28 with special guest, the Zane Williams Band. Creager will perform hits from the past 2 decades.

Next on July 29, Jake Worthington from season 6 of The Voice will perform songs from his self-titled debut album such as “Just Keep Falling in Love.” Special guest Bling Dog Alley, a Central Station favorite, will also perform that evening.

The next performance takes place on August 2 and stars Jason Boland & The Stragglers, an American red dirt and Texas country band. Additionally, Slim Balkey will perform that evening.

“Jake Worthington is returning from last year,” said Central Station marketing director, Albert Vazquez. “We also had John Montgomery 4 years ago, and Aaron Watson has been with us for 10 years, and now he’s gotten real big. We also have our local bands that are playing.”

To end the two-week celebration, Watson, born and raised in Texas, will be performing on August 4 at Central Station.

“Watson just played at the Country Stampede,” said Vazquez. “He had a 4 p.m. show, and 20,000 people showed up just to see him perform. It was also in hot, 100 degree weather.”

Watson will be performing hits like “That Look” from the album, The Underdog.

Next on the lineup is Montgomery, who will be performing with special guest Wes Cossman.

“Tickets prices are $20 or less, mostly up to $10 a ticket,” said Vazquez. “I wanted to give a huge thanks to our sponsors, because without them, I would not be able to do $10 tickets. Without those sponsors, we could not do what we do.”

Tickets can be purchased prior to each performance and are non-refundable. Vazquez stated that tickets can be purchased at the door, but will be $5 more expensive. All performances will be outside and will be cancelled in the case of rain, according to Vazquez.

“Every year the shows range anywhere from 700 to 1,000 people,” said Vazquez. “We want to thank the community for supporting Central Station and making us their number one restaurant and event venue destination. We’re looking forward to Dodge City Days.”
