There are few things more American than a cold beer, fireworks, and someone singing the blues. This year, we pulled out all the stops for their 20th annual Red, White and Blues festival with a top-notch line-up, the Marietta Brewing Company on site, and gorgeous weather. (Ok, so maybe we can’t take credit for the weather — but we could not have asked for a better night.) The Lafayette lot filled up fast as folks settled in for a night of brews and blues, the sun slowly setting over the city. This year’s line up included Angela Perley and the Howlin’ Moons, the Noah Wotherspoon Band, and blues-rocker Patrick Sweany, with an intermission performance from The Burning Dawn.
Once the sun set and the smoke settled, Sweany took the stage with a boisterous “Happy Birthday, America!” Local die hards and newcomers alike flocked to the stage as the band broke into song. Singing along to every word, the audience happily kicked off their shoes and danced well into the night.
Thank you to everyone who joined in the celebration!
