CENTREVILLE — The Centreville Lions are set to host the 37th annual Bay Music Festival on Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park near Centreville where the gates open at noon and the music will roll from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m.
Thanks to faithful sponsors, especially presenting sponsor Coors Light, admission is $10 for anyone over 15 to see 13 eclectic acts, including eight new acts, on two stages, organizers said.
The show will be closed this year by the first-time appearing Eric Karge Band, 2014 Maryland Country Music artist of the year. Other new acts include Floydfest winner SwampCandy, fresh off their UK tour, with their rootsy delta blues; D’Vibe & Conga with their smokin’ rock, reggae and Motown tunes; Mac & Blue, a hot new indie R & B band; plus Deal With It and Savage Cabbage, two hard-hitting rock and R & B bands from Priddy Music Academy. New solo acts include Jordan Aurora, Juilana Cianchetta and Will McCollom.
The Lions are happy to have The Chris Sacks Band returning with their Caribbean style rock, steel drums and all; 2nd Chair, a hot young trio of rockers from Kent Island who lit up the stage last year; Tracey Eldridge, the regionally acclaimed children’s music artist; and Jillian Taylor, making her third appearance.
The food scene welcomes the very popular Centreville-based Bay Shore Steam Pot to the festival this year along with the return of the Paul Gunther Catering crew, the Ole Tapas food truck and Amy Cool’s Ice Cream truck, plus plenty of cold beverages to fill any appetite.
The YMCA of Centreville will be heading up the children’s activities until 6 p.m., including face painting, camp games, plus having a moon bounce in addition to Tracey Eldridge with her balloon art and two sets of children’s music.
Make your plans, bring your lawn chairs, your children, your neighbors and look forward to a wonderful day of music with friends Saturday while helping support the Lions Club of Centreville with sight-related projects.
