FrunFest is over – and to say it went out with a bang would be a huge understatement. The final concert for this year was Zac Brown Band, with opening acts Levi Lowery (below right) and Nick Cowan (below left).
The high school stadium had a capacity crowd of 14,000 – the largest in FunFest concert history. And the fans who came to see Grammy winning Zac Brown Band certainly got a show that no doubt exceeded all of their expectations.
It goes without saying that Zac and the band know how to entertain. Their music is familiar to most of us, with hit songs like “Free,” “Whatever It Is,” “Highway 20 Ride,” and the one that started it all off for the group, “Chicken Fried.” Their concert was everything we thought it would be.
I liked the fact that Zac performed along side his opening acts, as did several members of Zac’s band. It’s a nice way to get these newer artists some exposure, and get their names out there to country music fans.
We had our WXBQ crew on hand again to get the evenings festivities started. The heat was next to unbearable – but with the right amount of cold water, a chair, and an occasional walk over to a shady spot, everyone made it through the evening without too much trouble. And I’m sure everyone had a great time.
Here are some pictures of Saturday Night’s performance.
That’s it – FunFest 2010 is over. And I have just a few days to rest before I’m up and out at the next local event. I love summer! Now I’ve got to get ready to go to work, I will talk to all of you soon!
