Expanding beyond being the largest country music festival and gathering in Nevada, Yerington’s Night In The Country Festival ventured into the Reno’s Lex Nightclub for a Thursday night in March with their Night In The City series. Taking over the casino nightclub the concert brought West Texas group, Treaty Oak Revival to the stage.

While the casino nightclub environment might make for a strange locale for a country rock concert, the five piece group filled out the stage and proceeded to launch into a nearly 90 minute set where it was beyond clear the group was enjoying every minute of the room’s energy. Making the most of the club lighting while the sparks of bottle service servers walked throughout the club with drinks, Treaty Oak Revival quickly encouraged the crowd to jump into the club’s center swimming pool (one attendee did and was promptly removed by security), sprayed the crowd in beer, and leapt and jumped across the stage and drum riser throughout the course of their set.

“We’ve never played Reno before and we’re gonna play every song off our new album before the end of the night,” shouted singer Sam Canty about the band’s Have A Nice Day record.

While Thursday nights are often country line dance instruction nights inside Lex, this night was country music amplified a lot more than usual. Though couples could be seen dancing in the wings, it was just as easy to see members of the crowd perched up on shoulders in the crowd or dancing atop the table service booths.

Nearing the end of the night, Canty made one more announcement…

“If you plan on doing some shit to possibly get you kicked out of this room, this is the song to do it to!”

With audience singing along, the band wrapped with an extended version of “No Vacancy” before being shouted back onstage for a final encore. Clearly having fun, the group was all smiles and playing off the burst of energy on Lex’s club floors.
