Flip flops, moo-moos, and shorts will be the fashion of choice as the Conch Republic Band On the Half Shell will be playing tropical favorite tunes from Jimmy Buffett to the Beach Boys. The band, from Louisville, includes acoustic guitar, steel drums, congas, other percussion instruments, saxophone, and vocals with a sound straight from the islands.
The evening will also include a luau buffet beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the buffet and concert are $40.00 per person; a cash bar will be available. General Butler is offering an overnight package that includes the buffet, concert, Sunday breakfast, and a lodge room for two for $165.95.

Northern Kentucky’s first state park and one of the first ten in the Commonwealth, General Butler State Resort Park sits on a cliff in Carrollton overlooking the confluence of the Kentucky and the Ohio Rivers.
On the grounds of the park, history is on display at the Butler-Turpin House. Built in 1859 by one of Kentucky’s most prominent military families, the house is open for tours Wednesday through Sunday except during the winter months.
The hilltop Butler Lodge is an attraction within itself. Each of the 53 rooms features a private balcony or patio overlooking the pool or hillside. The Two Rivers restaurant at the lodge features a bistro style dinner menu and is a popular Sunday Brunch destination. In the lobby, visitors can listen to the piano or just admire the view of the Ohio River valley.
Other features of the park include golfing, swimming, hiking and biking trails, a campground, fishing, boating opportunities, and much more.
General Butler is located just 44 miles northeast of Louisville and conveniently close to I-71 at exit #44.
