The Outstanding Musical Lineup for AquaPalooza 2018 at the Lake of the Ozarks

The biggest one-day boating event at the Lake of the Ozarks is almost here - AquaPalooza 2018! Saturday, July 21 from 1-5 pm Dog Days Bar & Grill will become a waterfront concert venue being enjoyed by thousands of people both on and off the lake! 



This FREE lakeside concert once again will feature the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks. We've got four talented acts lined up to entertain you all day long. You'll want to get here early so you don't miss a minute of the action! We'll be serving all of your favorite foods so you can keep your energy up and delicious drinks to keep you refreshed and hydrated. Also, you'll be able to hear this awesome concert from our pool too, so you can always cool off in there if you want to get out of the lake for a bit. 



Here's a closer look at the amazing music you'll be hearing this year at AquaPalooza at the Lake of the Ozarks. 

Chad Bearden
Chad grew up in a musical family on a small farm in Grant, Alabama. After spending more than a decade serving and protecting the citizens of Alabama, he decided to chase his childhood dream of becoming a singer/songwriter. His sound combines country, rock, pop, and even the occasional bit of hip-hop with a unique energy that fans gravitate toward. He travels the country performing, and we're thrilled to have him on our mid-Missouri stage.     




The I-Berrys
This local favorite 9-piece major show band is based right here at the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. They uniquely blend a wide variety of musical genres, including Irish, Celtic, Pop, Funk, Country, and Rock, all with talent, style, and humor. They can literally do it all! These multi-talented musicians will take you on a musical journey you won't soon forget.  



Ryan Collins Band
Ryan Collins may live in Nashville, but this Missouri-born fella hasn't forgotten his roots. He takes his love for country music seriously, as does his band. Collins, along with four of his life-long friends, came together to create a magnetic dynamic of talented musicians. Their bond is evident once you hear the incredible sound of their music and see the energy and excitement they bring to the stage. Well-rounded, passionate, and musically sound, the Ryan Collins band is a one-of-a-kind experience you do not want to miss. 




Goddesses of Rock
This isn't an ordinary tribute band, but rather an amazing multi-tribute band dedicated to bringing the incredible sounds of the many female icons of music to one stage! You will experience the music of Heart, Joan Jett, Tina Turner, Lady Gaga, Adele, Janis Joplin, Linda Ronstadt, and many more. It's like attending multiple concerts all in one show!  



Make sure that you plan to stay at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant after AquaPalooza is over because we've got more incredible live music coming your way for the rest of the evening too! DJ Cheez & Taz the Drummer will entertain you from 6-10 pm, followed by the talented Chad Bearden once again from 10 pm-close.



Dog Days Bar & Grill is an exciting place to hang out all summer long. During this unbelievable Lake of the Ozarks annual event, we take that excitement and triple it! Get ready to spend the entire day and night right here with us on Saturday, July 21, 2018. You may even want to come back again on Sunday for a little more fun before the weekend is over.

The Best Place to Celebrate the Dog Days of Summer is Dog Days Bar & Grill!

Dog Days Bar & Grill would like to officially welcome you to the Dog Days of Summer! These occur on the calendar in the United States from July 3-August 11, but of course, they happen at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant and bar spring through fall every year! The calendar definition is slightly different than our definition though. Learn all about both below. 



According to the Calendar
The period of time designated on the calendar as the "Dog Days of Summer" are the hottest, most sultry days during the season. Some feel that these are the most uncomfortable days in the Northern Hemisphere, where all you feel like doing is laying around and being lazy. 

The phrase originated around Sirius, also known as the Dog Star, the brightest proper star in the night sky. The name literally means "glowing" in Greek, and it's constellation is Canis Major (Greater Dog.) 

In ancient Greece, they noticed that the re-appearance of Sirius in the night sky was a precursor to the hottest phase of summer. Greek poets wrote about how the return of the brightest star brought with it heat and fever, and that the combination of Sirius' light with the sun's had an effect on plants, animals, and women as well as men. Alcaeus advised all to "steep your lungs in wine" before the arrival of the star since "women are at their foulest but men are weak since they are parched in head and knees." What? Sounds strange, but the wine thing sounds good to us!           



Beat the Heat at the Dog
Here at Dog Days Bar & Grill, our "Dog Days of Summer" aren't a lazy, miserable, heat-soaked time. Instead it's an awesome period of time when the sun is shining and everyone can stay cool in the best pools at the Lake of the Ozarks sipping frozen cocktails and enjoying fresh, delicious menu items. We celebrate the mid-summer portion of our season by hosting amazing annual events, like the upcoming AquaPalooza 2018, and keeping the party going with incredible live music. For example:

The Pool & That View
The best place to beat the heat is in our pools. We offer a family-friendly area where people of all ages can enjoy some time in the water, and our other pool offers poolside lounge chairs, in-water tables, and a fantastic swim-up bar. 



The view from our decks and the Dog Pound have always been magnificent, but now that we've added the brand new Woof Top Patio, you can get a bird's eye view of the main channel, making it even more breathtaking. From up there, you can get a great view of what's going on at the pool and throughout the rest of the place too. 



The Events
Another way that we make the Dog Days of Summer exciting is by throwing all kinds of amazing annual events all season long. We've already hosted 2 Log Jams this year, the extremely popular Canine Cannonball, and our White Party, and we've got a LOT more excitement coming your way.

First and foremost, AquaPalooza 2018 is right around the corner on Saturday, July 21 from 1-5 pm. This lakeside concert is the biggest single day boating event at the Lake of the Ozarks, and always quite a sight to see, but even better to take part in and enjoy! Not long after that, we'll also be hosting a Silent Disco, Budweiser Pool Party, another Log Jam, plus much more. Throw in all of the dates that we've scheduled the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks to play our indoor and outdoor stages, and you know that this is the place to be if you like to have a good time!



The Food & Drinks
Last, but certainly not least, while you're here you can enjoy the delicious items coming out of both our kitchens and our bars. There are appetizers like our Hickory-Smoked Wings and Drunken Ginger Tuna to get you started, an excellent selection of Nacho varieties, Signature Burgers, Specialty Sandwiches and Salads, Beach Bowls, and delicious entrees like our Crab Legs, Ribeye, and Baked Seafood Pasta. 

Heading over to the bar, you'll find all of your summertime favorites including Rum Runners and Pain in the A**. We also have a list of creative cocktails we've come up with on our own, plenty of ice cold beer, plus a fully stocked bar for mixing up whatever you like. Now that's a refreshing way to keep cool! 



So there you have it. Here at the best waterfront bar & restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, the Dog Days of Summer aren't a miserably hot time to dread and hide indoors, but rather an excellent experience full of fun, refreshment, and great memories waiting to be made! 

If you do feel like you need to get out of the sun for a while, you can always head to the indoor area of Dog Days Bar & Grill where the air conditioning will get you ready to get back out into the fun waiting outside for you. Come in soon and help us make the Dog Days of Summer the wonderful time of year that it should be!

Independence Day Log Jam at the Lake of the Ozarks

The 4th of July falls on a Wednesday this year, making it a week-long holiday for some of you lucky people! If you're waiting for the weekend to do your celebrating, then you're going to want to make plans to be at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant for our Independence Day Log Jam on Saturday, July 7, 2018. We'll be having a great time all week long at Dog Days Bar & Grill, but we're throwing our main event for the 4th of July this weekend!



The Log Jam
Our holiday weekend Log Jams have become a much anticipated annual event here at Dog Days Bar & Grill. We team up with some great people from Columbia, MO - The Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival, Logboat Brewing Co., and 102.3 BXR - to bring you an afternoon filled with amazing live music, cool giveaways, tasty brews, and an even-more-exciting-than-usual Saturday at the Dog! 

The Log Jam will be happening on Saturday, July 7, 2018, from 1-5 pm, but don't tucker yourself out too early. We've got even more amazing live music planned for you well into the evening too. Our holiday weekend isn't going to end until we close for the night on Sunday!  

The Music
Our very special guest for the Independence Day Log Jam is the unbelievable King Benny. King Benny is a blues/rock based band out of a small town by the Mississippi River called Louisiana, MO. Their sound is a mixture of several genres and has pulled influence from many different artists such as The Allman Brothers Band, Freddie King, Son House, Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and John Hiatt. 

These talented gentlemen have made waves all across the Midwest blues scene playing several clubs and festivals, including the upcoming Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival this fall. They also get plenty of airplay in major radio markets with their original music. You are going to want to get to the Log Jam early so you don't miss a moment of their performance! 



As we mentioned above, once King Benny is done and the Log Jam wraps up, we've got even more of the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks hitting the Dog Days stage in the evening! The Baub Eis Band will play from 6-10 pm, followed by the Mixtapes from 10 pm-close. These amazing performers will have you dancing all day and all night long! 
 

The Sponsors
These fantastic groups of people come together for every Log Jam to make it the exciting event worthy of your attendance. 

The Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival
Next fall, just a short drive from the Lake of the Ozarks, the RNBNBBQ Festival will host its 12th annual event in Columbia, MO. It will be happening September 23-30, 2018, at Stephens Lake Park. Three separate stages will be set up, each hosting 2 days worth of uninterrupted music from international, national, regional, and local artists. You'll hear a wonderful variety of genres represented; roots, blues, gospel, country, folk, bluegrass, rock, and soul. Add to that some of the best BBQ grillmasters, and this is a mid-Missouri festival worth checking out! You can reserve tickets and learn more at www.RootsNBluesNBBQ.com.

Logboat Brewing Co.
Also out of Columbia, MO, is the Logboat Brewing Company. They focus on brewing beers they themselves like to drink, which coincidentally happen to be beers that our customers like to drink too! Especially on a hot, summer day in July. They will be bringing many of their unique and flavorful beers to our Log Jam so that you can experience them for yourself. They feature 4 core beers (Bobber, Dark Matter, Shiphead, Mamoot, Snapper, and Lookout) plus a large variety of seasonal and specialty beers that we know you're going to love. 



Dog Days Bar & Grill
Dog Days has been feeding and entertaining the lake area since 1993. With a full menu of delicious, fresh dishes and ice-cold, refreshing cocktails, there's something for every taste. Last year we expanded to add the best pools at the Lake of the Ozarks, one of which has a great big swim-up bar attached to it, plus a bigger and better outdoor stage for our many musical acts. 

This year we've grown even more with the completion of an additional kitchen and the Wooftop Patio, which features a breathtaking lake view of the main channel. Whether you join us for lunch, dinner, drinks, dancing, swimming, or one of our many annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks, one thing is for sure, you're going to have the time of your life!   



Need a Place to Stay? 
New this year, we've also added the best vacation house rental at the Lake of the Ozarks to our long list of awesome things we have to offer! Currently, Log Jam weekend is still available for you to stay in this amazing house within walking distance of Dog Days Bar & Grill, but you better act fast! This 4,500 sq. ft. lakefront house can sleep up to 16 with 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and lots of living space to spread out, relax, and have some fun. 



It doesn't matter whether you come by boat or by car, as long as you get here for the Independence Day Log Jam at Dog Days Bar & Grill. It's another event that you're going to be very sad about if you miss it, so don't!

Who's Ready For AquaPalooza 2018?

We are just one month away from the biggest party on the water at the Lake of the Ozarks - AquaPalooza! This year's event will be taking place on Saturday, July 21 at Dog Days Bar & Grill in Osage Beach. If you haven't already started making plans, now is definitely the time to do so!



What is AquaPalooza?
AquaPalooza, in case you haven't heard, is the biggest single-day boating event at the Lake of the Ozarks. This amazing concert on the water takes place from noon-5 pm, with even more awesome entertainment happening in the evening once its over. 

Thousands of people attend this annual event at our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant every year, by land and by lake. Hundreds of boats will be parked in and around our docks for a prime view of the lakeside concert, but you can both hear and see the stage from the restaurant too, and it will be just as packed up there! 


People come from all over the country to attend this awesome party. The waiting list for dock slips alone fills up a year in advance, but no worries, because all of the boaters that don't get a slip simply tie up to each other and fill the entire cove with watercraft. In between those boats, the lake is filled with people on floaties, sitting back, relaxing, and having a great time with all the new friends they're meeting. 



As we mentioned, AquaPalooza can also be enjoyed from the restaurant. We've got the Dog Pound cranking out drinks as well as the swim-up bar at the pool. This year we've also got our brand new Wooftop Patio open for business with the most amazing view of the Lake of the Ozarks you've ever had the pleasure of seeing, especially on a day like this!   

2018 Music Lineup
Every year the most entertaining live acts hit the AquaPalooza stage, and this year is no exception. We've got 4 incredible bands lined up to keep the party going all day long. 


Chad Bearden
The I-Berrys
Ryan Collins Band
Goddesses of Rock



Don't expect the party to end once the last act leaves the stage, though, because we've got even more live music headed your way on our regular stages that night! First up, DJ Dr. Cheese and Taz the Drummer will entertain you from 6-10 pm, followed by Chad Bearden rocking the house 10 pm-close.




Make Travel Plans NOW!
If you're coming to the lake area from far away, start making those travel plans right now. If you live nearby, make sure you've made arrangments to get yourself to Dog Days Bar & Grill early on Saturday, July 21 and back home again late that evening. This is an annual event that you do not want to miss, and most likely the most exciting party you've ever attended. It's sure to produce all kinds of awesome stories to tell your friends about so that they make plans to join you for AquaPalooza 2019 next year!

It's Canine Cannonball Time at the Lake of the Ozarks!

We are well-known for hosting some of the best annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks, and one of those much-anticipated events is this weekend's Canine Cannonball 2018! If your four-legged family member enjoys jumping in the water as much as most of us do here at the lake do, then you'll want to get your team signed up for this family-fun weekend at Dog Days Bar & Grill.

Event Details
This year's Canine Cannonball will take place Friday-Saturday, June 8-10. It's always thrilling for people of all ages to watch, and the dogs that are here that day seem to really enjoy it too! We'll have a great big pool set up down by the water, and our four-legged competitors will take turns to see who is the best jumper in the lake area.  

The competition is open to all dogs and their handlers, and there are 3 categories in which to compete. You are welcome to sign up for 1, 2, or all 3 events. Those events area explained below, followed by the weekend's schedule.
  • BIG AIR - This is a long jump for dogs. They may begin at any point on the 40' dock. When ready, they run and jump as far as they can after a toy thrown into the water by their handler. The distance between the end of the dock to the point where the jumper's tail set breaks the water's surface is logged as the official distance.  
  • EXTREME VERTICAL - This is a high jump for dogs. They begin at the 20' mark on the dock. A bumper toy is extended 8' from the end of the dock over the water. Jumps begin with the toy at a height of 4'6" and that height is increased by 2" increments as the competition progresses. 
  • SPEED RETRIEVE - In this event, dogs once again begin at the 20' starting mark on the dock. A bumper toy is suspended 2" above the water at the far end of the pool with a starting indicator light above it. Once that light turns green, the handler releases their dog, the time clock begins, and it stops as soon as the dog pulls the toy from the bracket.

We will also be selling souvenir Canine Cannonball t-shirts, and all of the proceeds raised from the t-shirt sales will go directly to the Dogwood Animal Shelter. 


We also currently have a "Vodka for Dog People" promotion going on in conjunction with Tito's Vodka. Now through the end of the Canine Cannonball weekend, if you order a specialty cocktail off of our Tito's Dog Drink Menu, $10 from each purchase will go to the Dogwood Animal Shelter. In addition to that, Tito's Vodka will match that $10, making it a total of a $20 donation, all from one drink! 

As a bonus for you (or actually, for your dog,) every drink also comes with your choice of a leash, chew-toy, or water bowl. Non-drinkers are welcome to purchase those doggy items for $10 without the cocktail, and that money will be donated along with Tito's matching donation.
