Tweed & Dixie Saturday at Band Shell

Submitted by Darrel Kelly on August 9, 2017 – 7:00 amNo Comment

The honest memoirs of country music’s forefathers and all-out rock and roll attitude collide within the beautiful contradiction known as Tweed And Dixie. Meeting somewhere between Waylon and Whitesnake, their sound has been crafted from growing up in the working class, grease-driven Motor City Madhouse and running the back roads of Great Lakes country. The group’s chemistry is comprised of the deeply rooted, country-rock soul of Barry Forster, pop-driven energy of Billy Gunther, gut-busting bass lines and soaring vocals of Rick Maida, and soulful, thunder-drumming of Justin Clifford (and his beard). This is their second appearance at the summer concert series.

The concert is FREE and begins at 6.   Get there early. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, cooler and have fun. Numerous giveaways, including the Abend Brothers T-Shirt Cannon. Stop by the True North Radio Network tent for a registration slip for a chance to win a $1,000 Shopping Spree at Young’s Art Van to be given away at this concert.
