    Terry McCauley

    A heavy dose of ‘60s and ‘70s pop and rock ballads is what you would expect to hear at a Terry McCauley show.

    His voice and acoustic guitar cover tunes from the likes of America, Bee Gees, John Denver, Neil Diamond, Herman’s Hermits, REO Speedwagon, ELO, Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot and Harry Chapin. While his guitar is usually all he needs, McCauley occasionally turns into a tambourine man or asks for help from the audience. 

    McCauley’s repertoire is impressive. He brings well over 250 songs to a show and recently performed nine straight three and a half-hour shows, without repeating a song.

    Performing throughout Eastern Iowa for more than 15 years, McCauley has been a mainstay at the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival the past 12 years and the Lisbon Sauerkraut Days the past nine.

    Dogs on Skis

    Dogs on Skis formed in the mid 1980’s playing covers of classic rock.  The band gained popularity in and around Iowa City/Cedar Rapids by focusing on playing songs that people liked to dance to.  From the beginning, focus was put on the band’s ability to perform material with vocal harmonies.  Those large outdoor shows were one of the main reasons their popularity grew in the early 90’s and that trend continues today with the advent of wineries and breweries featuring live outside music during the warmer months.   Over the years, the band continued to grow and mature. Instead of becoming complacent and content with where they were, they continually overhaul their 4 hour set of material based on crowd reaction and requests. Because of this, they can perform literally hundreds of songs and can play many of them as requested.
