Let’s talk about Live Music…

Who doesn’t love a night out, dancing and listening to some awesome live music??

We have just the place for that...Boondocks!! This is the place to be for some of the best national and local acts around! Located in a 9,000 square foot warehouse-style live music venue, you are guaranteed to have an amazing time here!!

There is no need to rush to purchase a seat because it's a general admission, standing room only, intimate atmosphere venue! Which means no spot is a bad spot!! And…there is a bar conveniently located adjacent to the stage, if you need to “wet your whistle.”

With names like Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Dan + Shay, Whisky Myers, Turnpike Troubadours, & Eli Young Band, it’s no wonder they were awarded the ‘2016 Nightclub of the Year’ by the Academy of Country Music! They also happen to be Central Illinois’ largest live music venue, and I must say, we are lucky to have them as part of our community!! 

New addition in 2021...COMEDY!! Yep stand up comedy! Doesn't get any better!
