The Quad Cities Live Music Venue

For the Fans

Music lovers! The Tangled Wood is THE live music venue for the Quad Cities area. We get it, you don’t always have time to pack up yourself and your kids, get a dog sitter, find an Airbnb and travel to see your favorite bands. 

That’s why we work hard at getting your favorite bands to come to you! Established bands, up and coming bands, country music bands, blues, rock and acoustic bands. ALL. OF. THE. BANDS!

With our oversized music amphitheater, big ass TV, outdoor grill and bar, patio oasis and so many other amenities, this truly is your entertainment destination. And there’s no cover charge for this music scene. What? Yup. Save the trip and your money because it’s the perfect, affordable staycation!

More About Our Venue & Guests

This entertainment destination is so much more than the Quad Cities live music venue! Music goers love to park themselves in our huge outdoor oasis to enjoy the food and stay for the drinks, games and a great show. They love outdoor concerts, music festivals and all types of live bands.

When we built the huge amphitheater, we did so with bands and fans in mind. And, for a sense of community. Because we’re just some friendly people along the Mississippi River who love a good music experience on those summer (and spring and fall) nights!

Check out our lineup if you’re ready for some live music in the Q! And, don’t worry, we’ll take the show indoors for old man winter.
