Live music for us at Sleepy Creek is something to focus on and not just background music. That's why we love Miles Nielsen.  When you closely pay attention to the words, the emotions and the sounds, you feel a stirring inside that makes you laugh out loud and sometimes quietly tear up. Check him out.  Then make your reservations now online or by calling us at 217-733-0330 as his shows always sell out early.
