Midway Stage

Battle Creek
Friday, July 13 at 7pm

It sure makes a difference when you love what you’re doing……

Just ask Wes Wheeler of Shelbyville, Steve Reynolds of Stewardson, and Bill Moore of Cooks Mills - aka Battle Creek Country. They LIVE to get together every weekend and play music for whoever will listen. On their priority list, right behind God, Family & Country - comes playing Country Music. They have been blessed with a gift of music - a gift that they love to share with folks from all walks of life. Just watch them on stage for a little while and you'll see them grinning at each other while they perform - as if they are getting away with something. And as much fun as they have, it ought to be against the law! After almost 31 years of traveling around and performing for folks in Central Illinois and beyond, they have learned a thing or two about entertaining people. They understand what people like to hear, what they like to dance to, and most importantly, they know how to treat people.
