The love of craft beers, local music, and southern food, will come together on Friday, June 28, and Saturday, June 29, when the Tap Room at Omaha Brewing Company, explodes with the excitement of new flavors of its hard sparkling coconut-lime water, Island Rain, and a crawfish boil that will take your taste buds on a trip to the bayou. This comfortable indoor-outdoor, family, and dog-friendly space will also transform from a hangout for easy listening into an inviting dance hall, when the harmonies of classic rock and blues jam duo, Ain’t Right, plus, favorites from Atlanta entertainer, David Craver, get turned up, to kick off summer’s official start in Omaha, Georgia.
Ain’t Right originated with Butch Potts in Galesburg, Illinois, where he played with a full band. He then moved south, and hooked up with Columbus local, guitarist Johnny Lesch, to form the partnership. Both have played for years, because they love music.
“Ain’t Right not only plays music,” said Potts, who is retired 20 years after his service as a United States Marine, “but we feel it and love to play it for people.” Their twist on classic rock-n-roll, a little bit of country with some Louisiana blues are done their way, so old and new fans of covers, “come together,” said Lesch, whose favorite beer is a Georgia craft variety stout.
On Friday, the selection expands, and the public casts votes on which of three Island Rain flavors will be the next to be canned by the brewery. Nate’s Famous food truck from Phenix City, will serve up burgers, and barbeque, accompanied by Craver at 1 p.m. Private chef Chris LaRoux throws the low country boil on Saturday, and live music starts features Craver from 1-4 p.m. then Ain’t Right from 5-9 p.m.
Five percent of Tasting Room sales both days will help fund Stewart County’s Family Connection Back Pack initiative.
Ain’t Right has had a busy summer at Warm Springs Cellars in Opelika and on JR’s Steakhouse’s stage in Fort Mitchell. They perform at the July 5 celebration event at Tricky Dicks Oyster Bar in Ellerslie at 7 p.m. then finish the month of June back in Columbus at The Hangout. They return to Omaha on Aug. 24 and Sept. 28 from 3-7 p.m.
