There will be drink stations set up around the club where attendees can enjoy some inspired cocktails, speak with the distillers and bartenders. Come and enjoy a wide array of small batch Maine made craft spirits and some truly inspired and creative cocktails.

Featuring Music by The Soggy Poor Boys and Dark Hollow Bottling Company.

Soggy Poor Boys bring the swing and stomp with a repertoire of New Orleans standards, contemporary and swing music that’s a spirited blend of fun and insanity. A brass fueled swinging jazz band that will indeed stand the test of time and transcend the bounds of geographic pigeonholing. That’s exactly what the Po’ Boys are producing. Their music is enduring. It’s infectious. It’s inviting. It’s irresistible.

Dark Hollow Bottling Company is much loved band based in Portland Maine where they have been concocting tunes since 2002. Their music is a living example of the American melting pot; distilling bluegrass, rockabilly, folk, rock and pop music. A five piece acoustic gang playing lyrically intensive originals and back woods traditional tunes.
