End of summer blues? Remember, its still summer and the best part hasn’t even happened yet. That will be this weekend at the Gettysburg Wine & Music Festival. Nothing goes better together than wine and music, so here is a preview of the live music acts that will play Saturday and Sunday on the main stage complete with video.
This rock cover band plays all the big events in the region from the Maryland State Fair to Gettysburg Bike Week. With these guys there’s the music then there’s the party. That’s why they’re set to get the party started on Saturday at 1230 till 2pm.
The Reagan Years
are regional favorites and they have been around for a long time. The quintessential eighties tribute, the band’s moniker is “No Voodoo Economics. Just great Music.” You will agree once you hear the opening of this video, there’s something about hearing the epic Breakfast Club track that takes you right back. Of course if you are younger, you won’t get it but listen and learn! Catch the memories on Saturday at 230pm till 4.
Bluesman Tom Larsen
Mr. Larsen is the most interesting act on the festival’s music menu. He’s been playing “slide” guitar since the 1970’s and if you don’t know what that is it doesn’t matter, he is just really cool, you’ll see.
His website says he plays blues, but not the “cryin in your beer” type blues. If you still aren’t convinced this guy means business have a look at the long list
of acts he’s played with. Too numerous to list, but it includes Steppenwolf, Buddy Guy, Fog Hat and Molly Hatchet. You can see him on Sunday 230-4pm
She is a country sweetheart who writes original music. Her great uncle was a Grand Ole Opry performer, and oh yeah she can sing. Check out this cover of “you’re No Good.” Brittany will be on stage on Saturday from 430 – 6pm.
He is young, handsome, talented and focused. Hailing from rural Pennsylvania Michael
is lighting up the mid-Atlantic with his original brand of country rock. He has already opened up for these national acts; Jamey Johnson, Phil Vassar, Josh Thompson, Colt Ford, Craig Campbell, Eric Paslay and Steve Holy. Catch him on the stage Sunday 1230 to 2pm.
