It will be a night of Eagles music beneath the stars at the 13th annual Wartrace MusicFest on Saturday, June 3, as the Eaglemaniacs recreate the hits of the Eagles and Don Henley.
The group of nine Nashville studio musicians is noted for its precise instrumental recreations and soaring vocal stylings of Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Timothy Schmit and Joe Walsh (and let’s not forget pivotal former guitarist Don Felder or founding former members Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner)—all of whom helped create a sound that has enthralled three generations of Eagles fans worldwide.
Opening for the Eaglemaniacs on the main stage at 7 p.m. will be 17-year-old blues guitar sensation Chase Clanton and the Vintage Vibes plus The Buck Wild Band, delivering a high energy show of classic Southern rock and contemporary country music.
A second stage with covered, cabaret-style table seating offers an afternoon hootenanny featuring single and small group acoustic musical acts playing continuous music beginning at 1 p.m. In addition to music, the family-friendly festival offers a broad range of food vendors, purveyors of arts and crafts for sale, a supervised Kid’s Zone, the Chris Clark Bicycle Stunt Show, a raffle for a guitar donated by Stephen Gallagher, a classic car cruise-in, the MusicFest 5k Walk/Run in Memory of Amanda Floyd beginning at 9 a.m. and a professional fireworks show to close the evening.
Admission to MusicFest is $7 with children under 12 admitted free. Free parking is available. Gates open at 9 a.m. with live music beginning at 1 p.m. MusicFest is presented by the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce to provide civic improvements for the town.
