Zellie’s Opry House

Calabogie Road is a bluegrass trip you’ll want to take.

This five-piece band has more than 100 collective years of performing for audiences throughout Michigan and Indiana. Their repertoire includes some of the old bluegrass favorites from Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs right up through Alison Krause and Rhonda Vincent.  Calabogie Road offers strong renditions of Gospel tunes, as well as original songs and instrumentals.  Calabogie Road is known for their tight three, four, and sometimes five-part harmonies and some of the finest pickin’ around...this well-liked regional band has a lot to offer.

Doors open 6:00 p.m.; Zellie's Band Pre-Show 6:10 p.m.
Calabogie Road  7:00 p.m.
Tickets $10/person

ETSU's premier showcase

"ETSU Bluegrass Pride Band"

Zellie’s Opry House welcomes the Mark “Foose” Zickefoose’s Michigan Mafia String Band to the stage on Saturday, July 15.  This show is guaranteed to be the highlight of the summer series and a “don’t miss” event.  “Foose” is roundin’ up the boys and they’ll be stormin’ the Zellie’s stage armed with instruments and a hit list of talent

Mark “Foose” Zickefoose is a favorite at our Zellie’s Old Fashioned Opry Show and wows the crowd with his vocal prowess.  Zickefoose, a mainstay in the West Michigan music scene has put together a stellar group of musicians to accompany him on July 15.  Jeff Sipe on guitar, Brent Bell on harmonica, and rounding out the group on upright bass, is Scott “Buck” Robinson of Free Wheelin’ fame.  

​Three of our East Tennessee 

State University


Hometown favorite (and ours!) and East Tennessee State University Bluegrass, Old Time & Country Music graduate Calder Baker is coming home for the weekend and he's rounded up a couple of our favorite ETSU bluegrass students, Ben Watlington and Max Etling to make the trip north with him.  When you get three bluegrass musicians together, you've almost got a band...all they needed was a mandolin player.  

We suggested several.  

However, the Calder, Max, & Ben had a plan.  

You guessed it...they wanted "Aunt Terri" to sit in with them.

This could get interesting, but it's guaranteed to be fun.

We hope you're in the House to witness when

"Aunt Terri" steps out with the bluegrass boys.
