Festival Bandshell Entertainment 2019

           The Clinton Fall Festival Entertainment Committee proudly announces the 2016 Bandshell schedule. Fall Festival goers will be entertained by some of the same performers from last year and we also have some new and exciting additions to our stage. Because we had great feedback about many of our acts, we did our best in trying to bring them back for encore performances this year. And they were just as eager to return to such a great festival.

Friday begins with the ever energetic CURVES ZUMBA from Tecumseh. This act is sure to get the Festival off to a running and heart thumping start using fast and slow dance rhythms with Latin, Salsa, and hip hop music. Next…..What has a big red nose, a polka dot tie and loves to make you laugh? ROSCO THE CLOWN! This master of hilarity performs again for you and is sure to bring grins and glee to kids ages 1-100! Following Rosco is a local duet of KATHRYN CRUMB and TYLER HEIMERDINGER bringing their own brand of pop, country, and traditional tunes, and some of their own creations. What would the Festival be without the New Orleans sounds of the DIXIE CUPS -Can almost hear those Saints Marching now. Closing the Bandshell schedule is a first time addition to our schedule that is sure to be a crowd favorite this year, “THE DIGGERS”. This will be an evening of Irish song, stories, and jokes. The Diggers is a group that you will NOT want to miss! And then, later at Tate Park……at 7:30, the “WHATABOUTS” will take us back to the 60’s with the ‘girl groups’ that we all remember and love so well. This year they will be accompanied by a live band The “WHOEVERS”. Come, bring your refreshments, and be taken back to a wonderful musical era.

Saturday begins with the sounds and steps of the "DANCE WITH HEART" studio. Students of all ages will shine on stage with steps and routines they have been taught and practiced just for this event. JOHN, JOYCE, and DALE will then take listeners through a musical tour of some of the most popular songs throughout the decades from the early 1900s to the present. Following is the PREMIER men's community choral ensemble, CHIAROSCURO led by Director Susan Matych-Hager. Men between the ages of 21 and 79 will bring the highest standard of excellence in choral music that will touch minds and hearts of everyone in the listening audience. One of last year's favorite performances came from the TECUMSEH PLAYERS who return this year with members once again showing their acting and musical skills. The 5th annual QUEEN PAGEANT follows. Young ladies from Clinton and nearby areas will compete for the title of Miss Clinton Fall Festival 2016. The Pageant will be Emceed by TJ Craven who did a great job last year. This will be a DON'T MISS event. Then, if you haven't seen the TJ CRAVEN SHOW, you haven't seen one of the BEST. This young man is "Clinton's Adopted Son". He has appeared on stage at our festival for 6 years….you will be amazed at his extraordinary talent and crowd appeal. TJ will leave you wishing the show continue on. This looks to be one of the best Entertainment Saturdays the festival has ever experienced.

Sunday will be a memorable day of entertainment at the Bandshell. The Church service will begin at the stage at 10:00 and go until 11:00. At that time “REFUGE TRIO,” from Belleville, Michigan will take the stage with their songs of praise and inspiration. Father Peter Clark and the RED CEDAR RIVER BOYS will play their bluegrass sounds right up to the parade, one of the finest Fall parades in Michigan. But don’t leave just yet, as The TECUMSEH BIG BAND will entertains after the parade and closes the 2016 Clinton Fall Festival with sounds of the Big Bands of the 40’s and 50’s.

There will be so much to see and hear at the 2017 Clinton Fall Festival. I hope to see you often and hope you enjoy the sights, sounds, food, and shopping this year.
