2019 Summertime By George Lineup Announced
ST. CLOUD -- The musical lineup is set for St. Cloud's favorite summer concert series.
The St. Cloud Rotary Club announced the 2019 acts for Summertime By George. The first night will feature Walter's Wheelhouse as the opening act and the Johnny Holm Band as the featured act on June 12th.
St. Cloud Rotary Club member Troy Fritz says they have a list of 300 bands they scout for this event.
We start by looking who has performed in the past and who we want to bring back. Then we look at the openings we have and the genres we are looking for that fit what we are trying to do. Then we start researching them and start building our lineup.
Some of the other featured artists include Justin Ploof and the Throwbacks, Collective Unconscious and the Fabulous Armadillos Eagles Tribute show, Big Jam and the Toe, Transit Authority and Michael Shynes.
Fritz says they also have a good mix of new opening acts they are excited to bring in.
We have two bands this year that will be fun, ones called The Future and the other The Locals and they were kids that came out of the School of Rock and so we try to bring them in and get them on a bigger stage.
Fritz says since they started, the event has drawn nearly 800,000 people. Summertime by George takes place every Wednesday through August 28th.
