In case you haven’t heard us officially announce, let’s give a big welcome to Avey Music and Mountain Ride, who will be jamming it up with us at the Hogging Up BBQ Festival at the Frederick County Fairgrounds in Virginia!
Band Bio: Eric and Kate Avey of Avey Music have been playing music for years — sometimes solo or as a duo. For this festival, they’ll be playing with the full band called Mountain Ride, and we are excited that we snagged them up on their very busy schedule here. Mountain Ride consists of: Eric Avey on guitar and vocals, Kate Avey on Bass and Vocals, Ernie Bradley on Banjo and Vocals, and Brian Brewer on Mandolin and Vocals. You can see more on their official website, or have a sneak peak at Mountain Ride here.
We updated the Competitor forms located on the Event Forms page. We have walked the fairground the other day to see where we would put the bands, the vendors, the barbecue competitors, the barbecue food vendors, the winery, the beer garden, the bull rider, the monster truck, and everything else we have planned. We wanted to make sure we had enough juice for the REALLY big boys with the BIG RV RIGS and make sure they would be able to access electricity. So we planned accordingly and are taking first come first serve on the big boy spots. There are three space sizes available. Take off an early bird discount if you apply by 1/10/13.
