Bill's Music Shop & Pickin' Parlor

If you were at the Bill’s Music Shop night back in May during the West Columbia live music series Rhythm on the River, you heard Bob Strickland and Freestyle, a regional touring band, specializing in the kind of classic country dance tunes you just don’t hear any more outside of a traditional Grand Ole Opry broadcast. With bands like this, Bill’s is forging its own brand of old-school country entertainment; come out and dance or just sit and listen.

Bill’s Music Shop & Pickin’ Parlor: 7 p.m., $5; 796-6477,
