Saturday is shaping up to be a truly glorious Fall day, with partly sunny skies and pitch-perfect 72-degree temps. What better way to revel in a rare perfect DC weather day than eating, drinking, and being merry with friends at Bannockburn's 12th Annual Music Festival!
The final two bands in our performer spotlight series likely need no introduction if you're a live music fan living along our stretch of the Potomac. Their iconic guitar riffs from modern classics hit that nostalgic autumn note of falling leaves and schoolbooks – just the thing to get you in the mood for decorative gourd season, MusicFesters.
Just a reminder that admission to this year's Music Festival and all associated kids programming is *free* in honor of Bannockburn's 75th Anniversary. Food and beverages will be available for purchase onsite, and donations to the Bannockburn Community Club are gratefully accepted. Come party with us!
General MacArthur & the Boulevards have delighted audiences for years with their fun, energetic renditions of rock, country, and blues hits. This homegrown act features Richard Aitken (vocals & guitar), Mark Dubester (saxophone), Don Fitzgerald (drums), Andy Garrett (vocals & harp), Amr Khani (guitar), Pam Toole (vocals), and Aaron Zitner (bass & keys). We dare you not to sing along once this band gets rocking!
