The seventh annual No Bad Days Poodie’s Party is happening Friday-Sunday, Oct. 1-3, at Poodie’s Roadhouse, 22308 Texas 71 West in Spicewood.

The event is raising money for the Helping Hand Crisis Ministry of Spicewood, which offers emergency food and financial assistance to residents in the 78669 ZIP code, and the Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center, which works to reduce, prevent, and end domestic and sexual violence.

“I had them as the beneficiaries in 2019 and thought I didn’t raise enough money, so I’m going back and trying again,” said Louis Long, event founder and president. “Helping Hands in Spicewood helps a lot of people. The Family Crisis Center helps a lot of families, too.”

Tickets are $20 per person for general admission and $50 for full access passes.

The three-day festival, which features artists playing a variety of genres, ends on what would have been Poodie’s Roadhouse owner Randall “Poodie” Locke’s 73rd birthday. Locke was Willie Nelson’s longtime stage manager.

Long said he and Sharon Kennedy of Texas Concert Connections chose the entertainers for the festival.

Friday’s concerts begin at 5 p.m. with Brooks Brannon followed by the Scott Rotge Band at 5:30 p.m., Hard Right at 6:45 p.m., Kim Meeks at 8 p.m., Sean Gasaway at 9:15 p.m., Lucas Johnson at 10:15 p.m., Cy Franklin at 11:30 p.m., and the Spicewood Blues at midnight.

The music starts again at noon Saturday with Jim Wyly taking the stage first. Rita Richards follows at 1 p.m., the Texas Treble Hooks at 2:15 p.m., Gasaway returns at 3:30 p.m., then Farah Lovelle entertains at 4 p.m.

Long and the Troubadillos begin the evening slate at 5:15 p.m. followed by Bad Rodeo at 7 p.m., Alan Haynes at 8:30 p.m., and Ru Coleman and The Big Hurt at 9:45 p.m.

On the festival’s final day, Gasaway starts off the entertainment at 1 p.m. followed by Paul Val Band at 2 p.m., Coby Wier at 3:15 p.m., Reverend Nathon at 4:30 p.m., Choctaw Wildfire at 5:45 p.m., Vince Van and The Outlaws at 7 p.m., and Deanna Wheeler at 8:30 p.m.

“We need a big turnout,” Long said. “Helping Hands and the Crisis Center – they can use it. We’d appreciate if they made a donation.”
