The place to gather with your friends after a long week at work, relax and enjoy some great music by local and national bands.

Music has the power to move the masses and few artists understand that better than Jake McVey. A relentless road dog who performs 250+ dates a year, McVey has earned a loyal fan base that’s addicted to his fiery stage show and arsenal of ear-grabbing songs.

A compelling performer who combines his upbeat music and a youthful enthusiasm with a seasoned eye for reading a crowd, McVey gives his all at every show. “It’s all about entertaining the fans and showing each and every person in the room a good time.” He’s shared the stage with some of country’s most acclaimed acts, including Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, and Dierks Bentley.

With a chockfull touring calendar, growing social numbers, and new music that he’s gearing up to release, McVey has come a long way but hasn’t forgotten where he came from. “I’m just a good Iowa boy who likes to work hard,” he says with a grin. “I was brought up with a great work ethic. I was raised that when the sun is shining, it’s time to make hay. That’s just who I am. I love to work.”
