Bayfront Jam Music Festival with Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers08/05/12 — 2 p.m.
Bayfront Festival Park
$38 to $68
The past year has taken the Steep Canyon Rangers to new heights. In March 2011, the
band released its first collaborative record with Steve Martin, Rare Bird Alert, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Chart and at #43 on the Billboard Top 200.
With the release of their fourth album, Paradise Hop, Pert Near Sandstone has managed to harness the raw energy of its famed live shows and inject it into 12 tracks of original material and a couple of originally arranged traditional songs sprinkled on top.
4×4, the 4onthefloor’s debut album, showcases the band’s heavy-handed rhythm section paired with lead singer Gabriel Douglas’ gritty, baritone vocals. Through gutsy Delta–blues and classic Americana, The 4onthefloor put their signature stomp on these classic genres with not one but four bass drums pulsing to the beat.
Admission is free for children age 12 and under with paid general admission adult.
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 30, at 10 a.m. Limited reserved seating is $68; general admission tickets are $38. Tickets will be available at all Ticketmaster locations. General admission tickets will also be available at the Fond-du-Luth Casino.
A portion of the proceeds from Bayfront Jam will be donated to the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Northland.
