Cobra Snake Necktie

June 22 – Hill Top Resort – Grand Beach

Festival 59 Entertainment proudly presents “Cobra Snake Necktie” a George Thorogood-infused cocktail of rhythm and booze from the true city of Muddy Waters playing at Hill Top Resort. They play all the finger-pickin’, rip roarin’ slide guitar booze-soaked rockin’ Thorogood anthems. And whether it’s 1950s rhythm ‘n’ roll like Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley, countrified roots like Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, or low down dirty blues like John Lee Hooker and Elmore James – they got you covered with music that was meant for you to get up and dance.
