    North of Mason Dixon band, also known as NOMaD, will offer up a double dose of its hard rockin’, new country tunes at the Cowboy Up Saloon on Friday and Saturday.
    In 2011, NOMaD dropped its self-titled album, a 12-song project featuring modern power country with sincere songs about real life.
    Since making a name for itself on the regional country scene in 2005, the Pennsylvania-based NOMaD has shown no signs of slowing down. Instead, the band continues to rock out and open up for national acts. Thus far, NOMad has supported big names including Brooks and Dunn, Toby Keith and Rascal Flatts.

    To ensure you won’t get served (colonial style), dance instructions will be offered for couples and singles a half hour before the event. Although members of the DECG wear colonial attire during demonstrations and balls, it won’t be necessary for this dance session. So dress in casual clothing and comfy shoes.
