For the 12th consecutive year, the Van Wezel Foundation invites everyone to join us for Friday Fests! Once again, our summer series will include free entertainment featuring some of the area’s most popular musicians at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Each concert will begin at 5PM and run until 9PM; come enjoy your happy hour with us!
On June 21st, let us take you on a magic carpet ride back to the days of Woodstock! This Friday Fest will feature Yesterdayze. This unique group tantalizes the ears with the memorable hits of the ‘60s. So throw on your tie dye, and let’s get groovy baby!
On July 19th, Kettle of Fish will keep you rocking all night long! This band’s style is best described as soulful blues and rock. If you like the sound of the Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, BB King, Johnny Cash, Dave Matthews Band, Stevie Wonder, the Allman Brothers, the Grateful Dead, Eric Clapton...you will love Kettle of Fish.
The following month, on August 16th, Impulse will be serving up a refreshing dose of reggae, zouk, and pop calypso. Island resort wear isn't mandatory; however, be sure to bring your dancing shoes! This island treat will have you up out of your seat and dreaming of the Caribbean all summer long!
September 20th, break out your boots for the country band One Night Rodeo! Opening for superstars such as Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Montgomery Gentry is nothing new to this group of seasoned musicians. The band released their first single and video, 'Alive and Living', which has maintained its spot in the Top 20 Country Countdown on GAC TV.
Our Foundation Friends are invited to join us in the Foundation's indoor VIP seating area for complimentary beer, wine, and food.
Don’t miss out on the summer fun!
