Five of the eleven concerts at Leffler Field (next to Mountain View Lodge) in Manson are in the history books. The event has been a wonderful experience for those in attendance but we are concerned about the lack of local participation.
There are several reasons Sundays were picked for our concerts. First we hope to have folks stay over one extra day, which means more hotels, more food and more wine. Also we didn’t want to be in competition with local businesses and their events. And we wanted to offer our locals something to do on Sundays, usually a dead day.
We have also offered local non-profits and community groups the opportunity to make money for their organization. We call these groups “Partners” and they can make some serious money for their cause. For each ticket our Partner sells they receive $4, half the ticket price. So if you have an organization than would like to raise money please contact us 509-293-0225. So far we have had the Manson High School Class of 2015, Chelan Valley Hope and this week North Shore Bible Church.
We have a great show for Sunday, July 20th starting at 7:00.
Our Opening Act is Tim Snider and Caio AndreattaSnug - Unbridled energy, intensity, and musical eclecticism! Tim Snider plays and loops the electric violin, guitar, cajon, and vocals creating aural landscapes that are forceful, confessional, and raw. Coming from Reno, Nevada, Tim picked up the violin when he was just three years old. Over the years, exposure to rock music, songwriters, like Ben Harper and Paul Simon, inspired him to play the guitar. His sojourns in Spain and Cuba introduced flamenco, salsa, and Afro-Cuban rhythms into his repertoire. His music can be described as a world-folk-rock hybrid that is aimed at the heart, the brain, and the feet.
Snug Harbor, our headliner is a 9 piece funk-soul revival group, tucked away in the corner of the Northwest in the city of Bellingham, WA. From original compositions to classic covers, Snug Harbor is raw,high-energy soul musicand each live show contains elements ofimprovisation over heavy funk grooves. After six years of recording, performing, and touring this band has really hit its stride. In 2014, with the addition of three new members, Snug Harbor has been regarded as a top performer in the contemporary funk and soul market. Follow them online to find out more information on music related releases and tour dates.
