2016 Calaveras Concert Season
I am so happy to write about something I love so much and that is live music. To me there isn’t a better night out than being under the stars with my wife or friends listening to our favorite bands on a warm Calaveras night. This season will be the third year for me covering Richter Entertainment Group’s Ironstone Concert series for The Valley Springs News. It has been a wonderful relationship with all REG, VSN and Ironstone. This year my reviews will also be published on JohnSlotPhotography.com blog.
Well it just keeps getting better. This year has the most aggressive and diverse line up ever at Ironstone. There will be a show for everyone this year and I am extremely excited.
it all starts July 14 with Darius Rucker….. Yes Hootie is coming to Ironstone followed the next night July 15 with my favorite band from the 90’s The Goo Goo Dolls and Collective Soul. I have seen GGD’s three times live and am so looking forward to number 4. They are a great addition to the walls of Ironstone with this being their first appearance in Calaveras County.
The talent shifts to a different style July 27 with Sublime. This is an all general admission show so get there early for the front spots.
Aug. 6 brings Train and The English Beat…..I predict this will be the first concert sold out this summer so don’t wait to get your tickets for this amazing show.
Just added Aug. 14 is Chris Young.
All you hell raisers get a night out, Aug. 21 puts 2 iconic bands together with Lynyrd Skynyrd and Peter Frampton. I have seen both bands more than once and my prediction is watch Peter Frampton steal the show this night….I’ve seen it before, can’t wait.
Sep. 4 brings Bad Co. to town. How do we end the season this year. On Sep. 30 we will have a Texas party roll into town with ZZ Top and Gregg Allman.
All ticket can be purchased at TicketMaster.com .
The foothill will be alive with the sound of Country and Rock music echoing along Six Mile Road.
See y’all there
