Step back in time as the British “invade” Jefferson Fest 2017!

Jefferson News

Saturday, July 8 marks the transition from the 30 year old traditional Jefferson Township Day celebration to the new modified exciting Jefferson Fest – Food Truck Festival, Concert, and Fireworks event. 

What better way to bring in the new celebration than presenting a unique and nostalgic musical experience on the main stage when The British Invasion Years perform at 7:15 pm on the fields of the Jefferson Township High School located at 1010 Weldon Road, Milton/Oak Ridge. 

The Jefferson Arts Committee promises to have you on your feet dancing or at least singing along to this exciting 2-hour free concert.  With their authentic vintage clothing and musical arrangements, the band takes audiences on a memorable trip back in time, as if you were attending a concert from a bygone era.   

Remember, the Beatles arrived in the U.S. on February 9, 1964, but that was only the beginning…More than just the Beatles, the British Invasion Years’ concert is three shows in one!

FIRST, YOU WILL HEAR CLASSIC SONGS BY ICONIC SIXTIES BRITISH GROUPS. The Beatles took the first step by swinging the door open and turning the music world on its ear. As a result, American fans began to thirst for more British music. England answered the call by sending their very best – all of whom were eager to fill the Fab Four’s shoes. The first wave of British Invasion music was instantly embraced because it was so eclectic…the bad boy soul of the Rolling Stones, the defiant anthems of The Who, the raw and powerful guitar sounds of The Kinks, the flower power grooves of The Zombies, and the uplifting pop of Herman’s Hermits. 

THE AMERICAN MUSICAL “RESPONSE” FOLLOWS WITH MEMORABLE HITS BY CELEBRATED ARTISTS. Almost immediately, ‘60s American bands were energized by what was happening “across the pond” and responded with plenty of eclectic sounds of their own: groups like The Beach Boys made you long to surf the waves, The Monkees made believers out of us and their TV show antics made us all laugh, The Doors hypnotized fans with their unmistakable organ sound, and Steppenwolf drove us “wild” with their classic rock edge. The winners of this musical “battle of the bands” were clearly music fans the world over.    

THE SIXTIES ERA RETROSPECTIVE CONCLUDES WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY NOTE-FOR-NOTE FINALE. This incredible musical trip back in time comes to a show stopping climax with music from the four lads who started it all: The Beatles!

Festivities begin at 5 pm with music and activities by DJ Earl Heller of Sound Solutions Entertainment and a 25’ Rock Climbing Wall activity by Bounce Around.  At 5:30 pm, an assortment of food trucks opens up offering delicious and varied menus for your dining pleasure including dessert.  At 7:15, the concert begins, the sun sets, and everyone is enjoying the music and food service.  At 9:20 pm, the 50/50 raffle winner is drawn and everyone settles down in their comfortable lawn chair or on a comfortable blanket and looks upward towards the sky because at 9:30 pm, Interstate Fireworks Company will put on a fantastic fireworks show that will light up the skies of Jefferson Township and beyond!

There’s free admission and free parking including handicapped parking throughout the event.  ABSOLUTELY NO alcohol, NO smoking, NO drugs, NO fireworks, NO bicycles, NO pets or animals of any kind, NO large coolers, NO backpacks, NO drones.  Bring a lawn chair/blanket for your comfort.
