The Silver Spur Saloon and Restaurant took part in the 2017 "Kick'n & Pick'n" music contest that is one of the events the Arizona Wild West Festival organizes and produces each year in Cave Creek Arizona. The Silver Spur Saloon and Restaurant entered the band the T -Bone Bastards and won the award guitar pictured that goes to the year's winner, and a framed personalized award. Last year 2016, Harold's Corral won the prize presenting the band: AZ blacktop. Judges said "this year's contest was a tough call, all the entries were excellent". After coming down to a tight call between runner up Danny Romero (who represented the Horny Toad Restaurant) and played some originals, judges votes made T -Bone Bastards & The Silver Spur Saloon and Restaurant winners of the 2017 Kick'n & Pick'n western music contest. Judges were looking for "most western" regardless of genre and the T -Bone Bastards presented the best. Judges said next year a requirements may include original music. Thank you to all who participated... more next year with the Arizona Wild West Fest "Kick'n & Pick'n" music contest.
