The 30th Annual ZOO-DE-MACK rolls through town as another summer season begins at historic Legs Inn. And there's no better reason to invite our old friend Kirby back to kick things off, musically-speaking, that is. Kirby brings a unique mix of acoustic guitar, rich vocals and harmonica wizardry with him as he returns to entertain the masses in the beautiful and scenic outdoor Legs Inn gardens during the annual ZOO-DE-MACK!

The Marsupials are a funk rock trio whose sound falls somewhere between the searing heat of Jimi Hendrix and the psychedelic styling of Tame Impala. Their live recordings are the testimony of an organic and singular live band that's all about the chemistry: their sound is blissfully raw yet refined, with intention and feel reigning supreme. The release of their debut album, Mellow Emergency, exhibits them distilling this fury into a seamless and dynamic 12 song journey of pure, unbridled creativity. With the groove of funk, the power of rock and the warmth of blues on their side, The Marsupials sound refreshingly free-form and uncompromising, yet classic and familiar in the best possible way. Do not miss this special live performance at historic Legs Inn. 21+ ONLY/MUST HAVE VALID ID/$5 DOOR

Dr. Goodhart's Home Remedy was formed back in 1982 as one of the regular "house bands" for the early Blissfest festivals. The Remedy takes you on a musical journey through America's musical heritage as well as other cultures to experience folk and roots music in its many forms. The group is well versed in many musical styles including: Swing, Jazz, Blues, Irish, Cajun, Appalachian, Gospel, Bluegrass, Gypsy, Ethnic styles and original tunes. The band's leader and founder, Dr. Goodhart himself (AKA Jim Gillespie/Mr. Blissfest) regularly inspires audiences with his special brand of humor as he embarks on a patter that is reminiscent of an old time medicine show. The other band members supply the necessary spice of musicianship, poise and professionalism. Dr. Goodhart has thrilled young and old audiences alike and will revive your senses as well as maybe even sell you a bottle of their famous, patent pending, all natural, Dr. Goodhart's Home Remedy tonic.
CRACKER Unplugged featuring David Lowery & Johnny Hickman
It's been eight long years, but they're back. CRACKER has been described as a lot of things over the years: Alt-Rock, Americana, Insurgent-Country, and have even had the terms Punk and Classic-Rock thrown at them. But more than anything Cracker are survivors. Co-founders DAVID LOWERY and JOHNNY HICKMAN have been at it for a quarter of a century -- amassing ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe ("Low," "Euro-Trash Girl," "Get Off This" and "Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me" to name just a few), and a worldwide fan base -- that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry -- continues to grow each year. A limited number of tickets are now available as Lowery and Hickman return to historic Legs Inn for this special live "unplugged" performance.

*** IMPORTANT UPDATE RE: HALLOWEEN PARTY *** After thoughtful consideration and taking into account numerous factors over recent years which have impacted overall event quality, it is with regret that the annual Legs Inn “End-of-the-Season Halloween Bash” will not take place this year. As difficult as this may seem, it is the most prudent decision at this time. Thank you to those of you who supported this event over the past many years.
