Saturday, May 18, Main Stage will celebrate it’s 6th anniversary as the Verde Valley’s premiere music venue with local favorites, The Johnny Lingo Trio.

Whether it be an Irish reel or American bluegrass, a Mexican ballad or a German cabaret song, original compositions or reinventing a Beatles tune, The Johnny Lingo Trio creates a unique dialogue that is both melodic and rhythmic with an emphasis on what matters most; that it comes from the heart.

There is never a disappointed listener or dancer in the audience when The Johnny Lingo Trio is playing their magical mix. Come out and enjoy some great music, yummy drink specials and help Main Stage celebrate six years of providing Cottonwood and the surrounding areas with world-class entertainment.
