Rock The Barn

July 18 – 19, 2014

Friday & Saturday

A 2 Day Music Festival

Headlining this year’s musical lineup on Saturday is Lil Ed & the Blues Imperials. Also featured are national recording artists Tinsley Ellis, and back by popular demand, Canadian performer Chuck Jackson’s Big Bad Blues Band. Also on the bill are local performers Robert “Freightrain” Parker & Friends and Robin & the Rubes. Friday’s lineup includes Johnny & the Homewreckers, The Outlyers, The Donnelly’s Band, U People and The Dave Viterna Band.

Come out and enjoy the crowds, the aroma of barbeque, fried dough, pizza… The fun encounters with long-lost friends around the beer tent. And of course the great music. Now in its 10th year, Rock The Barn has grown into a major music festival. With the help of the great bands, hard-working volunteers, our sponsors and the support of the public, the event continues to grow and prosper.

Rock The Barn is more than just a festival. It’s the primary fundraiser for the Clarence Newstead Meals on Wheels Task Force. To date, the event has generated over $250,000 to help fund the Meals on Wheels services in Clarence, Akron and Newstead. It’s important work too. From their distribution point at the Clarence Senior Center, Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver over 25,000 meals a year to over 130 recipients on seven routes. So come out and have a good time while making a difference for those that truly need your help.
