The Amazing Rhythm Aces recorded their first album thirty years ago in a Memphis studio.  Part country, part rock, part blues and part R&B, the band's music is a "mixed bag of influences that had drawn them together."  The band's signature song, "Third Rate Romance," leads a list of well-known hits that also includes the Grammy-winning "The End is Not in Sight" and "Amazing Grace (Used to Be Her Favorite Song).

Meanwhile, country star Doug Stone will headline the list of entertainers on Saturday at Loose Caboose.

The festival also features a carnival, concessions and other entertainment.
