KNOWLESVILLE – The OC Summer Jam debuted today by the Chamber of Commerce, featuring local bands in a festival-like atmosphere.
The bands alternated between the OrleansHub.com stage and the Curtis Pavilion at the 4-H fairgrounds to prevent a break in the music while each group set up.
Bands on the OrleansHub.com stage were Experimental Sandwich, Harrison and the Radiators, Triple Play and Terrible Ideas. At the Curtis Pavilion, the audience was treated to The Moon Hunters, The Capitals, The Lisa Zelazny Band and Happy Ending. The Capitals were performing one of the last times before member Pete moves away.
Alex Feig of OrleansRadio.com called The Moon Hunters up and invited them to participate in the OC Summer Jam. They enjoyed the event so much they would love to be invited back for next year. Busch commented that there were faces in the crowd that were new for the band.
“Our families are always supportive which is nice,” Busch said. “It’s always nice to have a new crowd, too, and I think this summer jam was a great idea. I think it’s a really cool idea.”
