FOOD TRUCK WILL BE ROCK’S MONEY PIT.
I spent hours and hours researching and practicing different combinations of injections, rubs, types of wood, smoker temps and sauce. Family and friends were my “guinea pigs” or as I called them taste testers. Good thing is they all survived. What all this lead to was perfecting the craft of BBQ, with the proper combination of injections, rubs, wood types, smoke and temps that compliment each other to create GREAT BBQ. All of this leads to the heart and soul of ROCKS MONEY PIT BBQ, our award winning championship BBQ.

10% off your stay at Steeles Tavern Manor if attending the barn dance.  Free bottle of Tuscarora Red from the Manor if 2 nights are booked.

Uncorked with Those Guys

Those Guys is a four piece band from Rockbridge County playing songs that reflect their diverse musical interest and range from rock and roll to country, blues to bluegrass, reggae, pop and more. The band shares vocal leads and weave two and three part harmonies into most of their arrangements. Scott Youngdahl writes many of the band’s songs and plays guitar, Amanda Baxter plays guitar and bass, and provides many of the lead vocals. Cochran Lyle is a talented multi-instrumentalist and spends a lot of the set alternating between pedal steel and mandolin, and Josh Elrod keeps time on drums and sings.

As a band, we try to make each performance special, and reflect the mood of the audience. Sometimes that means focusing on sweet vocal harmonies and soaring pedal steel solos, and other times people just want to get up and dance to a good groove. We want to meet the audience where they are and all have a great time together!
