The Merseymen
The Merseymen
Named for the river that runs through Liverpool, England, birthplace of the Beatles, The Merseymen have been entertaining audiences in the Dallas area since 2012.

Formed through a mutual love of Beatles music, they quickly discovered a mutual admiration for other artists’ music too, such as the Eagles. Pleased with the success of their first cd “Have Mersey!”, their second cd “Happenstance” should be released soon. The Merseymen are thrilled to return to Food Truck Palooza this year.

The Blondettes
The Blondettes, from Dallas, TX, started their own genre, "rockabilly soul", to blend the musical loves of Elizabeth Riley, lead vocals and guitar, who hails from Detroit, MI, and Heather Kitzman, backing vocals and bass, born and raised in Dallas, TX. These two redheads, ironically no blondes in this band, have been perfecting their harmonies over the past 3 years singing together. Their music harkens a simpler time of doo-wop, Motown, and rockabilly, when meeting your love was every girl's dream.

Mazik Brothers
The Mazik Brothers, Jim Schwartz & Rusty Cooper, came together in 2003 to sing and play the top Pop Hits from the 60's, 70's and 80's. The formation of the band was the culmination of over 30 years of rock & roll experience! Don't miss your chance to come out and jam with "The Bros"… you'll know all the words and have a great time!

*This year's Food Truck Palooza will not feature music from High School bands.
