(May 17, 2013) Six musical acts are scheduled to perform throughout the day next Wednesday, May 22, during Macky’s Bayside’s inaugural “Life is Good” Music Festival.
“We’re trying something new this year,” said event organizer James Pavlik, a manager at the 54th Street bayside restaurant. “We wanted to get some new bands at Macky’s and have a little party before summer.”
Doors will open at 11 a.m.
Berlin’s Bryan Russo and The Tragic Figures will take the stage at 1 p.m., followed by Hot Sauce Sandwich at 2:15 p.m., Galaxy Collective at 3:30 p.m., Dale and The Z Dubs at 4:45 p.m., Bond & Bentley at 6 p.m. and Joe Bachman at 7:15 p.m. Each will perform about 45 minutes.
Guests can take part in games between band sets, for a chance to win prizes.
During the all-day music extravaganza, Redd’s Apple Ale, Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy and Blue Moon tasting booths will be set up for patrons to sample the beers.
A bar featuring Bacardi products will also be open. Drink specials during the event include $3.50 Bacardi cocktails, $2.50 Miller Lite 16-ounce aluminum pints and $1 Evian bottled waters.
Food will also be available.
A $5 suggested cover charge will be donated to local charities.
Over the last 10 years, Macky’s owners Pam and Macky Stansell have donated approximately $1.4 million — a majority of which was generated from cover charge — to area charities and organizations, such as the Worcester County Humane Society, Coastal Hospice and Maryland Coastal Bays.
