Ironworks is located slightly N. of W. Bell Rd., E. side of 45th Ave.
Our audiences are a mix of musicians and listeners alike. To use the old cliche', "Pickers & Grinners".
The entire evening is FREE with the exception of whatever meal and beverage you might order. Ironworks has reasonable food prices and a very attractive menu to choose from. As a bonus, our meeting room has very large windows with access to a nice outdoor patio overlooking a beautiful lake surrounded by an eye-appealing greenbelt. There's no cover charge for anyone. Our banquet size room includes a restroom, a beverage bar, and our own private entrance south of the main restaurant entrance. The evening's dress and agenda is very informal, we’re all about having fun. Dinner ordering begins as early as 5:30 p. m. with live music following shortly afterwards. Entertainment is provided by a mix of diverse music talent from highly respected seasoned performers to aspiring musicians who come to hone their skills in a live setting. Everyone is welcome.
Backup band duties are performed by Denny Sarver, 3 Wheel Drive fame (Upright Bass) along with Gene Burkhart, (Lead Guitar) and Dave Beaty, (Pedal Steel Guitar). Ray Scalf (Lead Guitarist) may also be joining us. Many of the Marty Robbins Tribute singers will be performing along with a host of great open-mike performers who always compliment our monthly Ironworks gatherings. The evening's focus is to honor Marty's memory and have a good time. We look forward to having you visit us. Please call me if you have questions, etc., (602) 677-2834
Very best regards,
John Edmonson Sr.
