Then on Friday and Saturday nights some of Charlotte's finest musicians take the stage with shows generally starting around 10:00pm. There is a modest cover charge on the weekends that goes directly to the artist. There's always plenty of cold beer at very reasonable prices including16oz PBR for $2.00 every night! Hope to see ya there! .... Puckett’s Farm Equipment was once just that. A farm equipment dealer. Once Charlotte started impeding on the small community of Derita, many farmers found their livelihood and their land disappearing. As time went on, the farmers started visiting Puckett’s to share a beer and their sorrows. Eventually Ralph Puckett, the grandfather of current owner Gary Puckett, found that he was selling more beer than tractors. Thus, Puckett’s Farm Equipment the local bar was born. In the years following the family developed one of the best local bars Charlotte has ever known.

InfluencesReview by creative Loafing Music: Live Music Review April 21, 2007 Cash Bash IV BY JEFF HAHNE Published 05.02.07 Jeff hahne RABBLE ROUSIN': The Belmont Playboys ... pictures: 1 | 2 The Deal: Four bands (two local) celebrate Johnny Cash, and play some of his music, too. The Good: The cats and kittens were out that night. From the first notes of Hick'ry Hawkins to the flying beer ... From the jitterbugging up front to the last growl of the Belmont Playboys, the fourth annual Cash Bash tore through the small Derita venue with a fury. Sure, there were some solid covers -- "Ring of Fire," "Folsom Prison Blues" and "Jackson" among them -- but the originals were just as good. Out-of-towners Rocket 350 and The Bo-Stevens joined in the fray for what amounted to a honky-tonkin', rabble-rousin', grease-and-growl shindig. The Bad: $1.50 PBR cans, four bands, high energy, a lively crowd, five hours of music ... what could be bad? I'm sorry I missed the pre-party on Friday night. The Verdict: It's a shame this event is only held once a year, but at least each day we're one step closer to the next one.
