Bud Light, Mellow Mushroom, and The Loafer have teamed with Tri Cities Classic Rock – 101.5 FM WQUT to present the first QStock Music Festival on Saturday, May 27th, at Kingsport Speedway.
The show stars legendary rock and funk veterans Mothers Finest. Since forming in 1970, the venerable musical powerhouse has gone on to release 16 albums, five compilations, and one DVD. They have opened for such iconic rock groups as ACDC, Aerosmith, Bad Company and The Who. Their sound is a mix of solid rock and roll with a funky backbeat, and their high energy stage show has made them highly popular on tour in both the U.S. and Europe.
Opening for Mothers Finest is a perennial regional favorite, Asylum Suite. This band performs a hit list of classic rock with incredible accuracy. They will also be performing songs from their new album “Asylum Suite”.
The show includes another locally fan based band, Rock and Roll Freak Show.
Gary Bortz leads the ensemble and creates a presentation of tightly performed classic rock laced with a comedic personality and crowd-winning banter.
Opening the show is Ali Randolph and the Outta Luck Band. Randolph’s dynamic stage presence complements the band’s precise renditions of rock, tinged with a taste of country and blues.
Gates open at Kingsport Speedway, 12:00 noon, with the first band hitting the stage at 2:00pm. There are no coolers, food, beverages or pets allowed. Food trucks will be onsite, as well as soft drinks, water and of course, Bud Light.
Tickets are $26.00, plus service charges and taxes. They can be purchased at www.wqut.com.
Come thirsty, come hungry, and be ready to rock for the entire day. It’s the QStock Music Festival presented by 101.5 FM WQUT – Tri Cities Classic Rock!
