(May 23, 2014) Macky’s Bayside will present its second annual “Life is Good” Music Festival, Wednesday, May 28, where six bands are scheduled to perform throughout the day.
Since the inaugural festival was a success, with about 200-250 people stopping by the 54th Street establishment last year, Macky’s manager and event organizer, James Pavlik, wanted to offer it again in 2014. This year’s festival is for all ages and will feature local and regional musical acts.
The festival, Pavlik said, is “a kick-off to the summer.”
“We want people to come, hang out and have a fun day,” he said.
Doors open at 11 a.m.
Zach Bellas and the Company Band will kick off the entertainment line-up at 11:30 a.m. Naked Nation will follow at 12:30 p.m. Hot Sauce Sandwich is scheduled to take the stage at 1:30 p.m., with Dale and the Z Dubs performing at 2:30 p.m. Pasadena will rock the house beginning around 4 p.m. Ballyhoo is set to perform at 6 p.m.
(Entertainment line-up subject to change).
DJ Japancakes will keep the music flowing as he takes the stage at 10 p.m.
During the all-day music extravaganza, drink specials will be available, including $3.50 Bacardi cocktails and $2.50 Miller Lite and Coors products. An ice luge will also be set up. Food will be available, as well.
JJ Roth of Ocean 98 Irie Radio will host and emcee the day’s activities.
Tickets are on sale now. The cost is $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Proceeds from the festival will be donated to local organizations or charities.
Over the past 11 years, Macky’s owners, Pam and Macky Stansell, have donated more than $1.4 million — a majority of which was generated from cover charges — to area charities and organizations, such as the Worcester County Humane Society, Coastal Hospice and Maryland Coastal Bays Program as well as to fund scholarships for local high school students.
