Time to find a great weekend of music in Eastern Washington
There are several dates that I set aside for myself to get away and listen to a great weekend of live music. The place is located near Electric City on Banks Lake just above Grand Coulee Dam.
The Sunbanks Blues & Roots Festival May 18-21, 2023 (yes it’s just around the corner)
The lineup is comprised of local, regional and national acts in a variety of styles including Blues, R and B, Roots Rock, zydeco, and singer songwriter.
According to http://www.sunbanksfestival.com/
“Founded in 1995, Festival-goers can enjoy a variety of accommodations; tent camping, RV sites with full hook-ups, rustic cabins, as well as 1, 2, and 5 bedroom villas with all the amenities of home. The resort also features a boat launch and moorage, miniature golf course, and beach access behind the stage with views that rival music festivals far and wide. This year we will host four music festivals - two blues/roots festivals, a country/Americana Festival, and a rock festival.
The Sunbanks Festival is 21 and over, and pets are not permitted.”
I actually work at this event as a recording engineer. It’s a great gig, I sit in the shade, meet cool people and occasionally turn a knob or two.
This year's lineup looks like this...
Roy Rogers & the Delta Rhythm Kings
The Blood Brothers feat. Mike Zito/Albert Castiglia
The Daniel Castro Band
