THE GRANDSONS - August 6th


July 27, 2009, Frederick, MD- Promising a rockin’ good time, The Grandsons is set to take the Baker Park Bandshell stage Thursday, August 6th. This free live performance—part of the Summerfest Family Theatre, presented by Celebrate Frederick, Inc.—begins at 10:30 a.m.

Performing together for over two decades, The Grandsons have perfected their exciting musical style, described as a blend of rockabilly, swing and country two step. The band’s impressive touring resume includes the entire continental U.S. as well as international dates in Germany, France, Canada, and Taiwan! Dubbed as the “hardest working band in D.C.”, The Grandsons exhibit a brand of rock that is all their own. Not only have their toured beyond the states but they have also opened for great musicians such as Willie Nelson, Ray Charles and Huey Lewis and the News. So strap on the kids dancin’ shoes and bring them out for a performance that is sure to please all ages.
