Tickets at the door*: $12-Members, $16-nonmemebrs (*No money will be taken at the door unless we don’t reach our max capacity) 

I hope you have started planning your costumes! This year presents an interesting challenge to incorporate a mask into your costume. Between sips and bites, masks must be worn at all times. There will likely be a lot of nurses/doctors, but the sky is the limit. Painting the face and the mask together is a great idea. A thief, mummy, cowboy or a full face mask are also options.

It is WAY more fun if everyone participates, so just plan on going all out. There will lots of competition to win a blown glass pumpkin by local glass artist Jeremie Draper. 2nd Prize is a blown glass wine stopper also by local glass artist Jeremie Draper. Everyone can vote by ballot for their favorite costume.

About the Band: Dexter O’Neal & Funk Yard is a multi-faceted Peoria-based cover band performing a variety of R&B hits that appeal to all ages. Dex and the gang have the ability to change musical forms right in front of your eyes. You can't beat the steady driving rhythms, heavy bass lines, crazy guitar leads, sultry sax melodies, and the powerful vocals of Dexter O’Neal. For more information, visit www.dexteroneal.com

Admission for all of our events will be prepaid online via 309Tix.com. A new seating arrangement is in place. To keep everyone as safe as possible and to comply with new government guidelines, attendance is limited. Attendees will prepay and may choose a table. If friends plan to share a table, it is advised that one person purchase for the group. BYOB is still in place. Drinks and ice will not be provided. No money will be taken at the door unless we don’t reach our max capacity. Walk-in prices will be more, so purchase ahead of time. Only small tables will be placed. Tables may NOT be moved or moved together as they are spaced 6 feet apart. Except when eating and drinking, masks must be worn when entering, exiting, moving about the room and talking to someone other than those you came with. Performers are required to wear a mask when not performing. Prior to the event, surfaces will be sanitized and sanitizer will be present at the doors. Thanks for your understanding and patience in light of all the changes!
