Good Times Festival - Stuarts Draft
Good Times Festival
Saturday, September 17, 2016
The Shenandoah Acres Family Campground
Noon - 10 p.m.
Imagine a Fall weekend in The Shenandoah Valley where there is a crisp wind blowing, food trucks firing up their grills, the sounds of a bass guitar and commanding vocals in the background and a cool beverage in your hand. It surely sounds like Good Times! Make your plans to be there!
This year, you'll get to play some games with KnockerBall Harrisonburg, check out local vendors, play in the Kids Zone (well, if you're a kid), take a swing at the putt-putt course, drink some great Blue Ridge Beverage beer, and listen to some fantastic music!
The Blue Ridge Beverage Stage will be rockin' all day with Natalie Stovall and The Drive, Brian Patrick Band, Lydia Warren & Matt Kelley Band, The Travelin' Hillbillies and featured Nashville recording artist, Jon Langston!
Jon Langston is a singer/songwriter from Loganville, Georgia. Langston first learned to play the guitar in 8th grade, but music wasn’t his main focus until his junior year of college. Langston attended Gardner-Webb University, where he played football.
Country music is Langston's passion, but he has had many different influences that have molded his music style. Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, and Tim Mcgraw to Guns-n-Roses, Staind, and Lynyrd Skynard have taken part into forming what Jon Langston’s music has become. https://www.facebook.com/JonLangstonMusic/

Whether it’s Natalie Stovall’s breathtaking vocals and larger-than-life stage presence, her band’s turbo-charged, take-no prisoners live shows, or the collective unit’s barnstorming worldwide tours, Natalie Stovall and The Drive prove they are arena ready. A humble, charismatic entertainer with a trademark lion’s mane of big blonde hair, Natalie and her powerful vocals and sparkling fiddle leave audiences spellbound. https://www.facebook.com/nataliestovall/
