Den­nis Quaid and the Sharks will be per­form­ing Satur­day, July 22 at the Stanis­laus County Fair on the Bud Light Va­ri­ety Free Stage. The con­cert will be hosted by 104.1 The Hawk and will be­gin at 8:30 p.m. The con­cert is free with the price of Fair ad­mis­sion.

“We know and love Den­nis Quaid as an ac­tor, but now we get to see him as a rock star,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesper­son for the Stanis­laus County Fair. “Den­nis Quaid and the Sharks are sure to be a fun treat for all of our Fair guests.”

Best known as an ac­tor, Quaid has a va­ri­ety of dra­matic and comedic roles un­der his belt in­clud­ing per­for­mances in The Rookie and The Par­ent Trap. When he is not flex­ing his act­ing chops, he is per­form­ing with his band the Sharks. His mu­si­cal jour­ney be­gan when he was in­vited on­stage to per­form with fel­low ac­tor Harry Dean Stan­ton and his long­time band, the Harry Dean Stan­ton Band. Quaid’s per­for­mance went over so well that he was ap­proached by a mem­ber of Stan­ton’s band to start a new group.

Den­nis Quaid and the Sharks spe­cial­ize in rock and roll and coun­try soul with the oc­ca­sional Jerry Lee Lewis clas­sic thrown into the mix. Quaid serves as the lead vo­cal­ist and rhythm gui­tarist. He has first­hand ex­pe­ri­ence per­form­ing Jerry Lee Lewis tunes, hav­ing played “The Killer” in the 1989 biopic Great Balls of Fire. Den­nis Quaid and the Sharks have per­formed in front of thou­sands of peo­ple re­ceiv­ing rave re­views for their stage pres­ence. Den­nis Quaid is not just an­other ac­tor turned rocker – he is a bona fide rock star.

The 2017 Stanis­laus County Fair opens Fri­day, July 14 for a 10-day run. Fair sea­son passes will be on sale be­gin­ning Satur­day, April 29. Visit the Fair’s web­site for up­com­ing ticket sale in­for­ma­tion at www.stan­co­fair.com.
