The Band Perry to perform at 2016 Speed Street

Posted By on Tue, Mar 8, 2016 at 1:51 PM

Circle K and Kangaroo Speed Street has come under fire in recent years for its lack of exciting performers on its stages in Uptown Charlotte. Looking to infuse a bit more interest in the 2016 edition of the street festival, the performers announced for this year's festival are Chris Young and Montgomery Gentry on Friday, May 27, and Kellie Pickler and The Band Perry on May 28.

“We couldn’t be more excited by this year’s music lineup. The fans asked for a higher quality and more current artists, and we heard them loud and clear,” said Jay Howard, president of JHE Production and 21-year producer of the annual event, in a press release. 

The only difference — this year's main stage performances will be gated and cost $15 each night. Ticket go on sale Friday. The musical entertainment for Thursday, May 26, has not yet been announced.

While those who aren't country music fans might be a bit disappointed, we have to give the festival credit in booking some big names to perform at this year's festival and hope the trend continues into the future, if only with a bit more diversity in its ranks.

Speed Street announces 2015 performers

Posted By on Thu, Apr 16, 2015 at 9:47 AM

It wasn't too long ago that Speed Street was getting some pretty big names to headline their free Uptown festival, with multiple bands on multiple stages. Well, that was then ...

The 600 Festival Association announced the performers for this year's Circle K and Kangaroo Speed Street (the new sponsors were announced earlier this week), and I can't imagine people are going to get overly excited for this year's options. Maybe it's just me? What are your thoughts?

Thursday, May 21
8:30 p.m. - Appetite for Destruction, the Ultimate Guns & Roses Experience
10:30 p.m. - Departure, a Journey tribute band

Friday, May 22
9 p.m. - Parmalee
10:30 p.m. - Corey Smith

Saturday, May 23
9 p.m. - Craig Wayne Boyd (winner of The Voice)
10:30 p.m. - Dennis DeYoung and the music of Styx

Well, at least there are still games to play and NASCAR drivers to meet. A PNC Speed Street 5K will also be held on May 23.

Fridays at the Factory, other concert announcements

Posted By on Mon, Apr 13, 2015 at 11:23 AM

We've been a bit critical of the Fridays at the Factory lineups in the past as they've leaned toward a rotating cast of '90s one-hit wonders and hesitated from pushing the envelope... so we have to give credit to those in charge for stepping up their game for this year's edition.

From South Carolina folk duo Shovels & Rope to sacred steel jammers Robert Randolph and the Family Band to Southern rockers North Mississippi Allstars, Friday Live at the Factory is ready to leave their mark on the summer concert season. The schedule is:

May 8 - Robert Randolph and the Family Band with Chris Cook and the Heartless Road Band
May 15 - Who's Band, The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band
May 22 - Cracker with Temperance League
May 29 - Misterwives
June 5 - Shovels and Rope with Flatland Tourists
June 12 - North Mississippi Allstars with The Josh Daniel/Mark Schimick Project
June 19 - Cowboy Mouth with Of Good Nature
June 26 - Surfer Blood with The Black Cadillacs

Advance tickets are $8 and a season pass is $50.

Other recently announced concerts include:

* Shinedown with Nothing More at Ovens Auditorium (?) on July 29. Tickets on sale Friday, April 17.

* Counting Crows with Citizen Cope and Hollis Brown at the Uptown Amphitheatre on Aug. 10. Tickets on sale Friday, April 17.

* Sublime with Rome (more like Sublime's bassist with some other guys...) with Rebelution, Pepper and Mickey Avalon at the Uptown Amphitheatre on Aug. 11. Tickets on sale Monday, April 20.
