CEN­TRE­VILLE — The Cen­tre­ville Li­ons Club is pleased to host the 37th an­nual Bay Mu­sic Fes­ti­val from 1 to 9 p.m. Sept. 22 at the Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park near Cen­tre­ville. This year’s fes­ti­val fea­tures 13 acts play­ing on two stages, all for only $10 with chil­dren 15 and un­der ad­mit­ted free. Plan now to come out for an in­cred­i­ble day of great mu­sic and fun.

This year’s lineup has eight acts mak­ing their first ap­pear­ance, in­clud­ing the Eric Karge Band, lo­cally based band and win­ner of the 2014 Mary­land Coun­try Mu­sic Award; SwampCandy, win­ner of the 2015 world renown Floyd­fest Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in Va. with their pow­er­ful rootsy Delta blues; and D’Vibe & Conga, a hot rhyth­mic rock re­gional band. Also ap­pear­ing for the first time will be Sav­age Cab­bage, Deal With It, Jor­dan Aurora and Will McCol­lum, all win­ners of bat­tles of the bands in the An­napo­lis area with Priddy Mu­sic Acad­emy plus Ju­lianna Cianchetta, a very tal­ented lo­cal singer.

Pre­vi­ous acts re­turn­ing in­clude the very pop­u­lar Chris Sacks Band, who will be bring­ing their breezy Caribbean style mu­sic to the park; Mac ‘n’ Blue fea­tur­ing “Mac” Priddy, Lee Priddy on lead and the Priddy guys with their high en­ergy blues; Sec­ond Chair, a young lo­cally based trio who lit it up last year with their in­cred­i­ble mu­si­cian­ship; Sarah Paige and Jil­lian Tay­lor, two ex­tremely tal­ented young singer song­writ­ers mak­ing their third ap­pear­ance; as well as the ever pop­u­lar re­gion­ally ac­claimed Tracey Eldridge with her sets of chil­dren’s mu­sic.

Thanks to pre­sent­ing spon­sor Coors Light plus other lo­cal faith­ful spon­sors, the Li­ons Club said it is able to make this a bar­gain for fam­i­lies with a $10 cover and chil­dren 15 and un­der ad­mit­ted free. Any ad­di­tional do­na­tions will be ap­pre­ci­ated as this event is the sole provider of the funds used by the Cen­tre­ville Li­ons Club to serve our com­mu­nity through its sight-re­lated out­reach.

In ad­di­tion to all the en­ter­tain­ment, there will be plenty of cold bev­er­ages, food trucks fea­tur­ing pulled pork and beef, crab cakes, ta­cos, French fries, ham­burg­ers, hot dogs, and ice cream to sat­isfy any ap­petite, again at very af­ford­able prices. There will be plenty of chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing chil­dren’s mu­sic shows by Tracey Eldridge and ac­tiv­i­ties led by the YMCA of Cen­tre­ville, ex­hibits, face paint­ing, bal­loon art, and moon bounce, plus craft ven­dors.
