The Blues Train lineup this year includes Erik Boa and the Constrictors, The Sugar Thieves, Robby Overfield, Big Jim Adam & John Stilwagen, Todd and the Fox, Alex Maryol, and Donny Morales. Each artist performs in their own vintage coach car, as passengers are to free to dance, move and sample all the musical acts while traveling from one vintage rail car to next. Entertainment and favorite libations are peppered with the scenery of the famous train featured in the Hollywood production, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."
Guests can enjoy live blues with a beer and wine cash bar while riding the rails.
