A LYNCHBURG TRADITION
Summer in Lynchburg is synonymous to live music and great food with family and friends. MG Productions' premier outdoor concert series, Cheers to the Weekend, will be held on Summer 2017, with a stellar line-up of bands you won't want to miss, at one of Lynchburg’s most beautiful outdoor venues. Enjoy amazing local and national bands; alongside Lynchburg's hometown talent.
In 2016, MG Productions stepped in to host and produce Friday Cheers with the blessing of Lynch’s Landing. A Lynchburg summer tradition that brought thousands of people together each Friday for 6 consecutive weeks; the largest multi-weekend music series at the Riverfront Park.
This year, Cheers to the Weekend! stands to promote live music and a wholesome community-event. We are also supporting the work of our local community partner Hill City Crash; a program that uses basketball as a vehicle to mentor young men in our area to help keep them in a safe, positive environ- ment that fosters academic excellence and ultimately help them reach their full potential. Our international non-profit partner is CCEH, a Haitian organization which is organized exclusively for charitable causes and purposes, dealing specifically with social issues facing marginalized Haitian Communities; with an orphanage serving the Haitian youth in Port-au Prince.
Funky Bone is a band from Lynchburg Virginia who plays funky music with a rock sensibility. You know the feeling, when you hear that awesome funky tune that forces you to get up and pull a friend to the dance floor or that great rock tune that makes you want to jump up and down and pump your fist in the air, yeah, that’s a Funky Bone show. James Brown, Prince, Rick James, Lenny Kravits, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Parliament, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Daft Punk….if its funky, soulful, edgy, wild, crazy, its Funky Bone material. Mind blowing mash ups and montages keep things fresh and exciting. Long sets of continuous music keep the audience engaged and the dance floor packed. Check out a Funky Bone show, even if you think you don’t have a funky bone in your body, you will have a great time.
DJ Ed, also known as Jack Edma, was born in the United States but lived most of his young life in the Republic of Haiti in the Caribbean..
