Fayette Music Fest features two bands 8.12.09

Written by David Green.

An evening of food and music awaits guests at the second annual music festival Saturday in Fayette.

The Parks and Recreation Board fund-raiser is scheduled on the track off Eagle Street from 3 to 11 p.m. with two bands and a hog roast scheduled.

 Last year’s event was billed as a blues festival, said board member Jennifer Williams, but this year it’s called Music Fest 2009, with two bands providing a mix of music.

Muffy and the Encore Band is the first group to perform, taking the stage at 4 p.m. for a three-hour show.

Lead singer Muffy lives in Jasper, Mich.,  and sings a mix of blues, classic rock, southern rock and Motown.

A preview of her singing can be heard at http://www.myspace.com/muffy1963.

At 8 p.m., Bone Daddy’s takes over, with Fayette’s Jerry Lucas one of the quartet, along with Bill Staniski, Dan Gnagy and Bob Burlingame.

Bone Daddy’s plays rock from classic to current, and adds some original music to the mix. Expect tunes from the Rolling Stones to Jimi Hendrix, from Seether to Black Label Society, Lucas says.

A preview of the band is available at myspace.com/bonedaddysrock.

Admission to Music Fest is $5, with children under 12 years admitted free.

Guests are not allowed to bring in food and beverages, but a variety of both will be sold inside the fence.

For additional information, call 419/237-2116.
