WARRENSBURG - Ashe's Hotel, a famed, historic roadside tavern in uptown Warrensburg, will be celebrating nine days of activities from June 4 through 12 in conjunction with Warrensburg Bike Week.
Ashe's first annual Bike Week & Summer Kickoff Party will be centered in two main events, although their outdoor bar and barbecue will be open daily at the tavern over the entire span of nine days, and live entertainment will be offered each day.
The first special event will be an all-day outdoor concert Sunday June 6 starting at noon, featuring the rock'n roll band Chained Lightning. Then at 4 p.m. is the ever-popular group the Refrigerators in a feature performance with their 10-piece band.
The proceeds of the gate - admission is a minimum of $5 - goes to Ashe's scholarship fund for children of veterans...administered through the local VFW post.
"This is our biggest event ever -we're in uncharted territory with this," Ashe's co-owner Hal Raven said Tuesday.
Then on June 11 is another concert featuring two acts.
Opening the show at 3 p.m. is the group Finger Diddle followed at 6 p.m. by the Electric City Horns. This is also a benefit, charity performance.
Raven said the event is going to be a big, festive dance party, as he is arranging for an outdoor stage and dance floor, both under a big open tent.
"This will be occurring regardless of weather, rain or shine," Raven said.
