Eric Gress is a singer and song writer from Pulaski, VA and one of Southwest Virginia's greatest homegrown musicians. Writing since he was 12 years old and playing any instrument he touched from the time he was two Eric has quite the catalog of music in his file. Rock music is what started his writing career at an early age and kept him traveling and playing. In Late 2013 he decided to step away from the rock world and try country for a change.

After writing a full album for the band Buck Nelson, Eric decided to separate himself from the band and take a walk down the solo artist road for a change. Since then he has been plugging away with writing, recording and playing as many shows as possible. With the new music he has written he hopes to catch the ears of friends, fans and anyone else who shares the love of music.

He has shared the stage and opened for Travis Tritt, Tyler Farr, Luke Combs and Old Crow Medicine Show. Eric has fans all across southeastern United States, and plays regularly in Nashville, Tennessee, as well as other states.

“To me, music is something that everyone in the world relates to. It can make you smile and it can make you cry but most of all its something 20,000 strangers can agree on at one time in a packed arena.. that is a beautiful thing.”



Vendors will also be setup at the community center for purchases.

Hot Dog Dinners are $5.00 for one hot dog and extra hot dogs are $1.00 each. The concert is free with dinner.
