The Hullabaloo at the Lakehouse Saturday will feature some of Nebraska’s liveliest and best musicians.

Organizer Brandon Miller has set the stage for an energetic, nine-hour music festival at the Lakehouse.

Miller is the bass player for the featured act – the popular Kris Lager Band of Lincoln and Omaha. The band is a two-time choice as the best bar band in Omaha and a fan favorite in appearances throughout the Midwest.

Rascal of North Platte starts the festival at 3 p.m. with solid infectious renditions of classic rock.

Lakehouse owner Catherine Martinez said there will be all kinds of beers, including giveaways, plus good food in the fine outdoor, lakeside setting.

Music continues until 1 a.m.

Also performing, with Miller’s descriptions:

• Funk Trek: "One of our favorite bands to work with. They are young, energetic, and infectiously funky. We play with them any chance we can get."

• Brad Cordle: The blue-eyed soul singer left a mark in the Midwest with his longtime horn-driven band “The Mighty Jailbreakers,” a regional favorite featuring powerhouse vocals, stage presence and appreciation of music that came before. Cordle has recorded and performed with the likes of Jim Belushi's Sacred Heart Band, and appeared on Aynsley Dunbar's album Mutiny.

“Brad and the band can get a crowd rocking like no other, and are one of the Midwest’s musical gems,” Miller said.

• BASSthoven: "Blac and Bentone take form as a two-headed tyrannosaurus rex pitted in a lazer battle, with each live set evolving to a new paradigm of edm performance," Miller said.

Live PA sensibility is coupled with software wizardry to send the life or death DJ battle straight to the brink of extinction, he said.

BASSthoven treats listeners to original, bass heavy, dance floor driven rockers, all crafted to please both the discerning chin-stroker as well as the let-it-hang late-night dance crowd. Last year, BASSthoven played more than 100 shows across 10 states.

• DJ Relic: "Faruq Yazid-Foster (aka DJ Relic) spins old soul and funk 45s that will make you groove the night away with nothing but a sway in your hips and a smile on your face," Miller said. DJ Relic credits Dj Synn, Dj SirEous and Nine Inch Nails for their influence.

The Lakehouse is at the inlet of Lake Maloney. Admission is just $15 at the gate.
