Bay Music Festival moves to September
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. The club will raffle off an autographed PRS SE Custom 22 guitar this year at the festival.
