“we had been doing for a few years before it got it’s official name. It was originally created sas a homecoming concert and a day of family fun, food and music for all of our neighbors,” says Rory. “When People actually started coming in from as far as Michigan, Flroida and even Washington State, we decided it needed to be a special yearly event.
“when you travel all over the country singing for people like we do,” adds Joey, “It’s so neat to be able to have them come to us and to share our own community with them.”
Music will begin at 3:00pm and the food will start at 5pm. Live music will continue into the evening with Joey + Rory’s headlining performance beginning at 7:00 PM.
The name for the festival comes from “…I’ve always worn a belt buckle with my Jeans and Rory loves his Carhartt bib overalls,” says Joey.
“this year for fun we decided to make it a “Can You Duet” Season 1 reunion and invite some of the other artists that were on the show with us in 2008,” says Rory. “They’re all so talented and honestly, never get to see each other any more. This is a chance for us to all reconnect and even more, for our fans to connect with the other artists they loved on the show also.”
