Lockeport is gearing up for their annual lead up to Canada’s day with the Lockeport Rock’s music festival.
This year will mark the fifth year for the popular music series with a variety of bands that is sure to appeal to all audiences.
Rap hip hop artists featuring B-Mac, DP and Naztee will be busting rhymes at the Lockeport Fire Hall on June 28 at 8:00 p.m.
“B-Mac is a wonderful poet and talented song writer,” said Francis Scott, recreational director for the Town of Lockeport.
She warned that while the artists are popular amongst youth, the show is not for the faint of heart or youth under the age of 16 due to explicit language.
On June 29 get into Lockeport on two wheels or less and people will be enjoying bands Perpetual Detour and The Trips during the Wharf Rat Concert at Seacaps Memorial Park at 8:00 p.m.
As an effort for the Lockeport festival to be greener, anyone coming into town by bike or walking will get in for just two bucks.
Perpetual Detour is an all girls Halifax based indie pop band that will also be playing at the Harmony Bazaar Festival of Women and Song in Lockeport later in the summer.
The Trips are a great new band that fuses garage rock, psychedelic music and blues with influences like musical icons The Who, The Beatles and The Doors. Their music is instantly likeable and music fans should definitely check out the show.
Headlining the music series and back by popular demand is the Minglewood concert on June 30 at Seacaps Memorial Park beginning at 8:00 p.m.
Local Mike Balish will be opening with his sometimes funny but always-talented folky blues numbers.
Matt Minglewood’s catchy guitar licks and bluesy rock’n style will bring the crowd to their feet confirming just why Minglewood is an East Coast favourite.
