The following details about the July 16th, 2022, Middle Bass Island Music Festival are brought to you by Lake Erie Islands Conservancy.
Middle Bass Island State Park and Lonz Winery Patio and Pavilion will be rockin’ and a rolling, jumpin and a jiving and generally a fun place to be on July 16, 2022 when the Middle Bass Music Festival rolls into town. It’s going to be a great time with live music, an artist tent, vendors, food trucks, beer, wine, and all your neighbors hanging out enjoying some Middle Bass Island charm.
Headlining this year’s event will be the Shootouts in support of their recent release Bullseye via Soundly Music. The Shootouts’ deep love of traditional country music forms the bedrock of their signature sound and have since grown into the unique blend that make up The Shootouts – equal parts vintage Nashville, Texas swing, and Bakersfield bravado. The Shootouts are a fantastic local recording act and worth seeing in person.
Local island talent Lucas Guy will be bringing his band Lucky Fools to the festival this year playing some of his familiar favorites as well as music from their new just released EP. Due to popular demand the The Chardon Polka Band is BACK for another appearance at our music fest. – A wildly entertaining look at polkas in the modern age; They were so fun last year, you couldn’t stop laughing. We are also bringing in Latin City Soul a unique ten (10) piece band that demonstrates their versatility to interpret a masterful songbook; From Salsa to Rhythm and Blues to Latin Jazz.
When you get hungry you can enjoy the BBQ from Jimmy G’s or Rosie’s Rolling Food Truck, and to quench your thirst get some beer from Catawba Island Brewing Company, and wine from Heineman’s. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets for comfort, but leave your coolers at home.
