A group of musicians from Williamsport will make their way back to the area as a part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival on Tuesday.
Candlelight Red consists of vocalist Ryan Hoke, guitarist Jeremy Edge, bassist Jamie Morral, and drummer Brian Dugan. The rockers have been on the scene for a while, and got their big break two years ago when they beat out over 10,000 other bands to win the 2010 national Guitar Center Onstage contest. The prize? Being the opening act for KISS.
Shortly after the guys signed on to Imagen Records and recently released their first full-length album, "Wreckage."
The Uproar Festival is a day-long event that includes bands spread out over several stages at the Toyota Pavilion in Montage Mountain, including acts such as Papa Roch, P.O.D., and Staind.
The summer season at the Mount Laurel Performing Arts Center may be winding down, but it's certainly not going out quietly.
American band 38 Special, who found success in the early 1980s, will rock their way through tonight.
The band has been together for more than three decades, and is known for such hits as "Caught Up in You" and "Back Where You Belong."
The Kramden Band, a group that plays everything from reggae to blues and rock, will perform on the Adams Festival stage at 6 p.m. and prior to that the Davisson Brothers Band will take the stage at 5, offering an act that captures a Southern-rock feel.
This show will also have a special pre-1997 car show on the lawn prior to the music.
Keep the music rolling all throughout the next week with several local shows.
DJ Tonez., a member of the local BeatTeks crew, will be spinning at Senunas' Bar and Grill in Wilkes-Barre tomorrow night.
Redwood Art Space is hosting an event at Embassy Vinyl in Scranton Wednesday at 7:30 that will feature Brave Bird, Pity Sex, Adam Mcilwee and Halfling.
You can enjoy what's left of the summer weather on the patio at Fire and Ice on Toby Creek and get ready for the weekend Thursday with jazz guitarist Bill Washe
