One of the best festivals anywhere has got to be the Mustang Music Festival coming up next weekend, Friday and Saturday October 10 and 11.
The brainchild of Mike Dianna, owner of Mike Dianna's Grill room, the festival started four years ago as a benefit concert for the corolla Wild Horse Fund. It's still a benefit concert, but Mike also contributes now to the Mustang Music Outreach that helps young musicians learn how to perform.
Held at the Whalehead Club in Corolla, it is a fantastic setting for an outdoor concert–about as good as it gets–and with three stages, there is always music happening. And with food vendors, artisans and a great crowd, there is always something to do.
One of the best features of any event that Mike promotes is how kid friendly it is, and Kitty Hawk Kites will be there with our KidsZone to make sure everyone has a great time.
Yet as good as the setting is, and there's no denying it's great for families, the Mustang music festival is all about the music, and the music rocks?
Back this year, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band with their funky New Orleans sound. They rocked everyone two years ago and there's no reason to think they haven't gotten even better.
With 18 bands ready to take the stage, there is bound to be something for everyone. It's hard to pick out a headliner in this group but it would probably have to be Rusted Root on Friday night and Keller Williams & More Than a Little on Saturday.
It's looking more and more as though Hurricane Joaquin is going to pass us by and the long-range forecast for next weekend is looking perfect—temperatures in the mid 70s and sunshine.
