Nashville-based Alyssa Palmer thrilled the audience at the Railyard Barbeque Brawl in 2021.

Third annual Railyard Barbeque Brawl and Music Fest will be held in downtown Madison Oct 28

MADISON – Railyard Barbeque Brawl and Music Fest will descend on Downtown Madison with a Kansas City style barbecue competition on Saturday, October 28, for the third year in a row. The competition and music festival is quickly becoming a Madison tradition and will once again take over the open field on Martin St.

The Railyard Barbecue Barbeque Brawl features an official Kansas City Barbecue Society cook-off with both professional and amateur tiers. The festivities for competitors begin on Thursday, October 26 while the festival fun for the public runs from 11 am to 10:30 pm on October 28. The public can purchase tickets for $20 plus fees which includes barbecue from one of four BBQ Tents, a great atmosphere will free smells from fifty cooking teams, and sweet sounds from musical acts.

Attendees can devour their barbecue while taking in the music from the Jimmy Henderson Blues Band, Andy Beckey, and Alyssa Palmer. Fun for the whole family is available too with kid-friendly activities aplenty.

The Jimmy Henderson Blues Band is a local favorite, often playing at Champy’s Fried Chicken of Madison. This group plays blues/rock originals and well-known covers.

Nashville-based Andy Beckey growls out some gut-bucket blues and a psycho-billy barrage coming from his guitar that belies his love of the Reverend Horton Heat. He will certainly entertain you with his twisted sense of humor. His debut album, ‘Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof’, is out on streaming platforms.

Another Nashville-based musician, Alyssa Palmer began writing songs at age 12 and has been captivating audiences ever since. With a powerful voice and thoughtful lyrics, the Michigan native delivers a sound that incorporates elements of country, rock blues. It is her authenticity and passion for connecting with her listeners that pours from every line of her songs.

Eugene Jung, the owner of Champy’s Fried Chicken of Madison, looks forward to bringing the event to Downtown Madison once again with the help of fellow organizers and sponsors Chuckwagon BBQ, Old Black bear, Southernscape Landscaping, and Johnson Pools & Spa.

“We are a small group of business owners who really wanted to create something fun for the city of Madison to call their own revolving around some of the best BBQ you will find in the country. Going into our 3rd year and more excited than ever,” said Jung.
