Spring is here! Since the weather is oh so nice, we decided to start a once a month concert series! Once a month you can expect a live, talented, unbelievable band! This Saturday night LIVE at TUPPS BJ Stricker & the Kings from 7-10PM. The best part? NO cover charge. Want to snag dinner while you are there? Pit Pals BBQ will be out from 1PM-8PM.
More about BJ Stricker & the Kings:
Growing up in the middle of nowhere, Northern Wisconsin where lumberjacks roam was the woodsy childhood of singer-songwriter BJ Stricker. Part of the last generation that actually played in the mud, Stricker’s upbringing centered around bikes, 4-wheelers & going up the road to get cookies from grandma while listening to music on grandpa’s record player.
Music has always been a release, first being able to express himself through a bass guitar at 12 years old. He learned his musical bearings in 6th grade pep band, finding himself in his first four-piece band as a 15 year-old freshman in high school. By 17 years old, he got his first six-string and wrote his first song during his first semester of college in a dorm room with his best friend. After college in Wisconsin, he bounced around quite a bit, living in Montana, New York, and North Dakota.
In 2014 he moved to Texas, briefly visiting New Orleans to immerse himself in the vivacious live music scene there. Energized with his passion for music, Stricker recorded his first EP Middle of the City in 2015. It was his first experience collaborating on original music with other musicians, including saxophonist Keith Anderson – who at the time was playing for Prince.
“All I could think was, ‘Oh my god. This is incredible.’ I was still finding my sound. But I knew that this was all I wanted to do. It’s what I’m meant to do.”
In June 2015 he met drummer Connor Pickle, and began writing songs with him. By February 2016, they had put together a five-piece band – giving Stricker the opportunity to cut his teeth booking his first shows. In early 2017 the band’s lineup included Ryan Dahir (sax), David Wilson (guitar) and Patrick Smith (bass); later on Luke Callaway would be a new addition, taking over drums from Pickle. After grooving with chemistry and playing just two shows together, they decided to record an album.
Driven by Stricker with a big & inviting folk rock-style acoustic sound, the full band brings warm accompaniment on electric guitar & saxophone with playful melodies influenced by the style of Dave Matthews, Neil Young and Amos Lee that gives their music a hint of blues and soul. The band released their 6-track record Roam as BJ Stricker & The Kings in November 2017, featuring an intimate listening party in Dallas. Currently the band is represented by 13th Floor Music and has been showcased this past year in Dallas-based festivals Cottonwood Arts Festival, Whistlestop Music Festival, and Deep Ellum Brewing’s Labor of Love.
The group recently released a live-recorded EP at The Rustic featuring two previously unreleased songs, with plans to produce another live album in 2019 with more new music.

LIMITED beers will be tapped first for VIPs from 11am-12:30pm. General Admission will begin at 12:30pm.
Wait, what? “Hop Oil Line”? Tell me more…
==> We are launching a line of IPAs that will have pure essential oils made from fresh hops, steam-distilled right out of the field at harvest season. This captures the intense, aromatic essential oils found in only fresh hops.
So how exactly does the process work?
==> It starts with fresh hops during harvest season. Then, they steam-distill the whole hops with pure steam. Instead of removing the leaves and steams (which removes so much flavor), they keep the whole hop intact through the steaming process. After steaming the whole hops, they collect the vapor, cool it, distill it, then separate the pure hop oil from the water. The hop oil is purified for use, then we go in and add the hop oils after fermentation. The taste is truly as fresh as you can get! It’s a new process we are really excited about and want you to come out, try our new line and tell us what you think!
When should I get there?
Depends on the ticket you have.
VIP tickets can access at 11 AM.
General Admission is at 12:30 PM.
Have your ID and ticket (paper print out or on your phone) ready. There will be plenty of beer to go around, regardless of ticket type. Good times all day!
Will you be selling tickets at the door like last year?
Yes, we are offering tickets at the door.
You must be at least 21 years to drink, and show a valid ID. You will be wrist-banded and must show this wristband while at the event. However, children accompanied by a parent can enter.
Do non-drinkers and children have to have a ticket?
No, non-drinkers and children do not have to pay to enter.
What are my transport/parking options?
We have free parking around the large field across the street. However, if you’d like to take public transportation, you have some great options. And, we’re big supporters of UBER & LYFT. Please do not drink and drive.
What can/can’t I bring to the event?
All the obvious stuff. Just don’t be stupid, please. Definitely no weapons, drugs or other alcohol products. Nothing that ruins other people’s good times. We don’t want the negative vibe of having to have a cop throw you out. Nobody wants to be that guy.
You can also bring folding chairs to ensure you have a seat!
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Having your ticket pulled up on your phone is the easiest and greenest option. Tickets are great, especially for back-up purposes. We also have an order list at the desk. Either way, having your ticket on your phone will ensure everyone gets in as quickly as humanly possible!
The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?
Depends. We’ve seen all the tricks. But seriously, that’s cool as long as the purchaser name lines up on our records. Having your ticket or confirmation on your phone is highly recommended.
Unfortunately, the City of McKinney does not allowed us to have dogs on premise at this time. We wish!
How do the beer samples work?
VIP and General Admission ticket fees gets you a sample card for 12 samples. Each sample is roughly 4 ounces. If you are drinking responsibly, extra sample cards can be purchased.
What about food?
Highly recommended! Definitely eat while you are here sampling beer. We will have food catered by Rye, a local Mckinney restaurant, who will be roasting 2 whole hogs for us as well as providing all of the sides you could ever want. Save your appetite for these guys and some cake!
