Picks of the Platzes: Country and Funk!
It’s hard to believe we’re already on the third day of Musikfest! It’s been a wild time at this year’s edition of the nation’s largest free, non-gated music festival — but we’re just getting warmed up!
Temperatures are warming up in Bethlehem today, too. Let’s see who’s doing their part to bring the heat for Day 3!
Gerard’s Pick (The Sheriff’s Selection): Jessica Rose
Zinzenplatz (North Side), 4:30 p.m.
I ran into Jessica this morning while making my rounds, and learned she was playing two sets — one acoustic at Yuengling Lagerplatz to kick off the day at noon, and this one at 4:30 across the North Side at Zinzenplatz. I stopped by the former to let you know that you’re in for a treat if you catch her later set this afternoon; her powerhouse country vocals and stellar songwriting are sure to delight!
Phillip’s Pick: The Rumble, ft. Chief Joseph Boudreaux, Jr.
Americaplatz (South Side), 7 p.m.
Featuring six Grammy nominated musicians, The Rumble is poised to drop an atomic funk bomb on the Americaplatz stage. Their live show is a symphony of rich color and propulsive sound.
