Carey Fest 2017 opens with the annual homecoming event on Thursday, Aug. 3, at Waterworks Park and continues downtown Friday, Aug. 4, and Saturday, Aug. 5.
Robin Lacy and DeZydeco – Friday August 4th
Since 1989, this six-piece group has been set apart from the mainstream with their unique instrumentation that includes the accordion, saxophone and rubboard, found mainly in the Zydeco and Cajun-styled bands of Southwest Louisiana. Taking the lessons learned from the roots of New Orleans & Louisiana music and culture, the group has added its own original songwriting and classic crowd pleasers to the mix, keeping a diverse and busy schedule.
Three Streets Over
Three Streets Over is a cover band from Carey, Ohio that specializes in 70’s, 80’s and 90’s Rock. With 5 vocals, the band can pull off the tunes that most bands can only dream of doing, like Journey, Foreigner, The Eagles, Prince, and Bon Jovi, to name a few. They like to mix in a couple good country foot-stompers like Alabama and Hank Williams Jr.! And a party wouldn’t be complete without some good ole’ fashion dance funk like Bruno Mars, The Commodores, Cameo and The Gap Band!
Nashville Crush – Saturday August 5th
Made up of some of the best musicians and vocalists around, Nashville Crush presents a perfect balance of Country and Rock music. Mix that with their high energy, award winning stage show and you have something that pleases all ages of people from all backgrounds imaginable. For the past 5 years Nashville Crush has been performing at some of the biggest clubs, festivals and fairs in the Region and have made a name for themselves as one of the best live bands around.
