National Headliner: THOMPSON SQUARE

Thompson Square isn’t a real place, exactly. It’s the musical territory staked out by the husband-and-wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, an exciting and unpredictable arecaption:a where country meets rock, rough meets smooth and one vagabond heart finds a harmonious common ground with another. It’s the sweet destination where two journeys end and another one begins. “It’s the place where we create our thing, a little fantasyland where we live,” Keifer says. And now the rest of us get to discover that magical place, starting with the duo’s new self-titled debut album. Fans began truly getting to know their way around Thompson Square with the release of the infectious radio smash “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” a fitting introduction to the Thompsons’ natural chemistry and spirit of buoyant romance. Other hit singles include "If I Didn't Have You," and "Everything I Shouldn't Be Thinking About."

The Patriotic Stage

The Air Force Band of the Southwest

The Air National Guard Band of the Southwest is a 39 member professional military band from Fort Worth, TX, covering a 7-state region of the Southwestern United States. Designated by the governor as the “Official Band of Texas”, they have performed for audiences around the world. In recent years it has given overseas concerts in Barbados, Bolivia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Nicaragua, Trinidad, Vanuatu, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait, and Qatar. Stateside concerts have been held in Arkansas, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wisconsin. Their "usual" concert is a mix of patriotic music, traditional military marches, familiar pop songs, Americana, and wind band standards. See them at Freedom 4th from 6-8 p.m.
