Rhythm & Brews Manhattan Festival

Posted on September 28, 2016 at 1:33 PM by Michael Goens

Country Stampede XXI delivered with well-known acts like Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley, and the lesser-known talents of Jake Owen, Chris Janson and Cassadee Pope were on full display and had concert-goers raving for days. You don't have to wait until next June for another round of great music talents to hit the Hat.

Manhappenin' will be rockin' out to another injection of hit musical entertainment at the Aug. 6 RhythmandBrewsMHK Festival at City Park concert stage. With CountryStampede in our wake, the next dose of celebrated melodic rhapsodies gets revved up in just another five weeks. You won't want to miss Grizfolkand SHEL. 

Not a country music fan and didn't notice all the commotion at Tuttle? No problem! Both groups booked for Rhythm & Brews are very mainstream. Grizfolk released "Waking Up the Giants" in January, and the five-piece, alternative music band with Swedish roots now plays mainly out of LA.

With roots much closer to The Little Apple, only 500-plus miles away in Fort Collins, Colo., the second album "Just Crazy Enough" was released earlier this spring by the indie-folk band. Check out the cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman," which the SHEL website describes as "a 180-degree flip on the original".

More from the group's website to describe the sister quartet's sound on Crazy: "The overall effect sheds light on their broad collection of influences from the daring rock bands of the '60s to the contemplative composers of 18th Century; even the waves of modern electronics ... Just Crazy Enough is masterful."

We'll talk more about the microbrew sampling event portion of Rhythm & Brews Manhattan in an upcoming blog. Just wanted to prepare festival-ers for the soon-to-be prominent acts on stage at RBMHK.
