HNCN Concert featuring Speakeasy

At Lander City Park

Enjoy a free concert featuring the community band with guest artist Speakeasy!
Born from the barren plains of Wyoming’s Fremont county, Speakeasy harkens back to a time when your word meant everything and there was no such thing as too much of a bad thing. Playing a mixture of smokey old-timey melodies and grandpa’s bathtub moonshine, Speakeasy’s setlist is largely a tribute to the late Nowhere Man & A Whiskey Girl (their sister and brother) as well as a smattering of originals. Tight harmonies, acoustic instruments, and soaring vocals capture the feeling of a bygone era mixed with a modern sensibility.
