Your headliner for Friday, August 19th is LANCO, a country music band. LANCO will take the main stage from 10:30 PM until midnight. As for Saturday, August 20th, Soul Asylum will headline the Main Stage from 10:30 PM until midnight.

I had a feeling that each night would represent a different musical genre. I love that - something for everyone. Although I am sure there is someone complaining (there always is). How can anyone complain about free shows? That's right - all of the concerts at Lapeer Days are free. Believe me when I tell you that is not the case for most if not all community festivals.

Additional free shows include,

  • Kougaran on Saturday, August 20th, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM on the Main Stage
  • Teddy Petty and the Refugees on Saturday, August 20th, 8:30 PM to 10:00 PM on the Main Stage.

The Lapeer Days committee has been known to bring in top-notch acts year after year (Candlebox, Uncle Kracker) and this year does not disappoint. My head just about popped off when I saw that Soul Asylum was performing this year. 'Grave Dancers Union' is one of my favorite albums of all time. I am not kidding when I tell you I listen to it at least once a month.

If you are not familiar with Soul Asylum or LANCO, check out the videos below. Did I mention these shows are free? Thank you Lapeer Days, here is to a great weekend in downtown Lapeer this August.
