This weekend, we'd like to introduce you to the talented entertainers that will be hanging out with us. Trust us - you won't want to miss out on this lineup!

Friday, August 21st ~ The Surge

The Surge started out as four guys jamming together in of their basements, but they have grown into one of the Lake Area's favorite local bands. Band members include Shawn Crow (lead vocals), Doug Harmon (guitar), David Dew (drums) and Eddie Reinkemeyer (bass). The Surge is a high-energy, high-entertainment local band that plays all of the party music you love dancing to! Click here to follow The Surge on Facebook.

Saturday, August 22nd from 12:30-4:30 PM ~ The Boomchux

If you're looking for a totally unique musical experience, you don't have to look any further than The Boomchux. The Boomchux consists of two talented musicians who have made their original mark on the Lake Area with their signature sound: a unique mixture of old-time western music, swing revival, and string band! Equipped with a guitar, upright bass, and a steel guitar, The Boomchux always promise a show that is more amazing than the last. Keep up with The Boomchux on Facebook here.

Saturday, August 22nd from 6:00-10:00 PM ~ South 5 Band

With their own unique blend of classic rock and new country, South 5 Band is a musical favorite among vacationers and locals alike. Featuring Dave Phelps on lead guitar and vocals, Dee Phelps on vocals and acoustic guitar, Ronnie Powel on bass, Arnie Jenson on drums, and Tyler Kenyon on lead guitar and keyboard, this band has everything they need to deliver one fantastic performance after another. Click here to find South 5 Band on Facebook.

Sunday, August 23rd ~ Squigglefish

Squigglefish invented their own genre of music, which they dubbed "rockinfunkinreggaeblues." It's definitely their own thing, but we guarantee you're going to love it! Musicians Paul Blakemore, Ray Cardwell, and Jason Stegall make up the band. Having started each of their musical careers at a very young age, these artists have fantastic talent and the experience to back it up. You're going to love them!

It's Going To Be Quite The Party!
With such a talented lineup of musicians ahead of us, this weekend promises to be one of the best ever! Consider yourselves personally invited to join us at the best waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks for a weekend of food, friends, and FUN. We can't wait to party with you!

Celebrate Family Fun Month at Backwater Jack's!

Have you heard? August is National Family Fun Month - and if there's a great place to celebrate this national observation, it's right here at the Lake of the Ozarks' best waterfront restaurant! Backwater Jack's Bar & Grill has everything you need to keep the whole family smiling, so pack up your crew and come on out for a day on the water you won't soon forget! Here are a few of the ways we can help you celebrate Family Fun Month.

KIDS MENU
Family Fun Month is all about spending time with the people who mean the most to you. If you have kids, they probably rank pretty high on that list! Backwater Jack's offers a delicious kids' menu that your little ones are sure to love. Let your children choose from grilled cheese, peanut butter and jelly, a burger with cheese, and more. Don't forget that all of our kids menu options are served with chips or fries!

DESSERTS
You've spent all year trying to live up to that New Year's Resolution - you deserve to cut yourself a little slack! Backwater Jack's Bar & Grill offers three delicious desserts for our customers to choose from: New York Style Cheesecake, Key Lime Pie, and Jack's Shortcake. Which one is your favorite?

BOATING
There's nothing like enjoying some quality family time on the water! If you have your own boat or if you're renting one while you're here in town, climb aboard and take it right here to our lakefront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. We have plenty of dock slips available so you can park your boat and walk straight up our dock. Find us at the 17.5 mile marker!


FOOD
Let's be honest - family gatherings are about reconnecting with our family members, but they're also about food! Food plays a huge role in most family gatherings. This month, your only job should be to focus on having a great time with the people closest to you; come on out to Backwater Jack's and let us take care of feeding everyone! We have an expansive menu filled with delicious options that are sure to please everyone in your group.

DANCING
Who likes to dance? Dancing is a great way to make some memories with your parents, siblings, kids, grandparents, and everyone else in your family. We proudly offer the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks - pick an evening to come out and dance the night away!

See You Soon at Backwater Jack's!
