1. The musical festival is making a debut

In its inaugural year, attendees can expect lots of food and entertainment throughout the whole weekend, organized by Big Al’s Pub and Grubberia. The sports bar has hosted more than 300 bands that rotate each weekend. The music fest begins on Friday, April 20 with the first act of the night, Standard Issue, playing at 9 p.m. Through Saturday a variety of bands will perform from noon to 9:30 p.m., and the show will close out on Sunday, April 22 from 1-5 p.m. There is no cover charge.


2. A portion of the proceeds go to Rolling Bones Rescue

Supporting local charities has been part of Big Al’s culture, manager Laurie Gagliano said. “We have supported many community projects over the years and usually try to do two fundraisers each year,” she said. “Even though we are a small company, we always do things big. We are using the festival to raise some funds for a local animal rescue.”



Chris Montgomery will be one of the 14 musical bands that will perform at the Big Al-A-Palooza Musical Festival. 

3. There will be a lot of performances

Big Al-A-Palooza Musical Festival will feature 14 acts from a variety of musicians, featuring Down to Jam, Breaking Point Band, Travis Hull, Jordan Middleton, Ziggy Pockets and more. Rock, blues, country, indie, bluegrass, rockabilly, and every style in between will be performed at both outdoor and indoor stages.
