3 well-known country music acts to perform at free BBQ, brew fest


“Anything Goes” singer Randy Houser will headline the Yuengling Brews, Bands & BBQ festival on June 2 at Carillon Historical Park, 1000 Carillon Blvd. in Dayton.

Amy Zahora, executive director of the Miami Valley Restaurant Association, announced the event’s line-up Friday afternoon.

“People are going to be really excited for it,” she said of the free fest that also features two other national acts with faces so cute some fans may swoon.

Parmalee will take the stage at 4 p.m. followed by Love and Theft at 6 p.m.

Houser’s performance is set to start at 8 p.m.

Although a free event, tickets are required.

The tickets will be available at participating restaurants within the next two weeks, Zahora said.

Participating restaurants include City BBQ, Hickory River Smokehouse, Amelia’s Bistro, The Dock, Jay’s Restaurant, C’est Tout, Neil’s Heritage House, Company 7 BBQ, Cadillac Jack’s Sports Bar & Grill, Smoothie King, Bob Evan’s, Pasha Grill and Brixx Ice Company.

The restaurants will sell items for $3 each.

Zahora said there will be much more than pulled pork and ribs at this BBQ festival.

Jay’s plans to bring grilled swordfish, for instance.

A little about the musicans:

• Randy Houser’s hits include “Boots On,” “Whistlin’ Dixie” and “How Country Feels.”

• Love and Theft is best known for its songs “Angel Eyes” “Runaway” and “Runnin’ Out of Air.” The band was nominiated for Country Music Association new artist of the year in 2012.

• The up-and-coming band Parmalee released its debut single, “Musta Had a Good Time,” in 2012. The single “Carolina” was released this year.
