Rock The Barn
July 21 – 22, 2017
Friday & Saturday
A 2 Day Music Festival
Okay, so for April Fools Day we announced our Friday headliners as Bon Jovi and Journey, and we took a bit of hate for that, with the whole Jon-Bon-Jovi-wanting-to-buy-and-move-the-Bills episode (remember when that was a thing?), and with the whole April-Fools thing, but it was almost true, and here’s why – OUR FRIDAY NIGHT HEADLINER will be Bon Journey!
Bon Journey is who you know they are, a high-energy, full-on tribute band that has made a name it its own right bringing you all your favorite Bon Jovi and Journey songs. So Don’t Stop Believing – this show will be even better than the real thing!
But wait – there’s more! Our Saturday night is upping the ante with Guns-N-Roses tribute band Nightrain!
Coming to Rock the Barn from their hometown of Ft. Myers, FL, NIGHTRAIN’S Tribute show to Guns n Roses has been taking the US by storm for 5 years running. Performances have ranged from The House Of Blues, MTVs Famous Club LaVela, The FC Dallas Stadium, to this years Carolina Rebellion, sharing the bill with Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, & Buckcherry to name a few. Nightrain continues to make their stamp in today’s ever growing Tribute Market.
Remember to check back as our full lineup is announced, and you can check out the Bands tab for more information. As we finalize this year’s lineup, we will be updating regularly, so check back frequently. Also please be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
Come out and enjoy the crowds, the aroma of barbeque, kettle corn, pizza and more… The fun encounters with long-lost friends around the beer tent. And of course the great music. Heading into its 13h 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 $420,000 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.
Music Friday is from 4pm – 11pm and Saturday 4pm– 11pm. Gates open 1 hour earlier. Rain or shine. At The Big Yellow Barn, located at 9015 Main Street in Clarence Between Harris Hill and Sheridan Drive.
