Austin-based guitarist, singer, and songwriter Jelly Ellington and Dallas’ premiere country cover band, Straight Tequila Night, will ready the audience for Vertical Horizon, Tonic, and Stone Temple Pilots at Carrollton’s 9th Annual Festival at the Switchyard on Saturday, November 3 in Downtown Carrollton (1106 S. Broadway Street). 

Jelly Ellington will bring his mix of smooth and soulful vocals and edgy guitar style to the stage for an untamed, blues-based rock ‘n’ roll performance that’s sure to excite the crowd. With comparisons to artists like John Mayer, Joe Bonamassa, and Lenny Kravitz, Ellington’s performance won’t disappoint. He recently released his debut album, All In, and is currently taking the country by storm on tour. 

Before Ellington takes the stage, Straight Tequila Night will give Festival goers a chance to two-step to the greatest country hits from the ‘90s.

Previously announced high energy cover bands Downtown Fever and Texas Flood will also warm up the crowd. A full Festival entertainment schedule, including children’s entertainment and the entire main stage and in front of stage lineup, will be announced in the coming weeks. 

In addition to free concerts, the Festival at the Switchyard also offers free live entertainment, free rides and games, free activities for children of all ages, and a variety of food vendors and Festival booths to shop from. The event is held on the streets of Downtown Carrollton, just off IH-35E and Belt Line Road, steps away from the Downtown Carrollton Station on the DART Green Line. Festival goers are highly encouraged to park at the North Carrollton/Frankford Station or Trinity Mills Station and ride the DART to the Festival site, as parking is extremely limited. 

Festival sponsors to date include 97.1 The Eagle, Atmos Energy, Bath Expo and Window Expo, Dallas Observer, DART, DFW Child Magazine, Frost Bank, Honest-1 Auto Care of Carrollton, Keller Williams Central, Olympus on Main, Parks Coffee, Suburban Parent Magazine, Switchyard Apartments, and Waste Management.
