"We are proud to be part of this fantastic community event again this year" said Chip Jones, General Manager of Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet.
Underscoring the depth and variety of Fort Worth’s musical traditions, the two-day, two-stage event (formerly Jazz by the Boulevard) showcases 20 bands across several genres, including Texas country, R&B, jazz, pop and indie rock.
“Fort Worth historically has a rich musical heritage and vibrant music scene,” explains event organizer Marsha Milam, who also produces 95.9 FM The Ranch’s Free Texas Music Series at Capital Bar and the Rockin’ the River Summer Tubing & Music Series. “One thing that we have always done is book local bands. You’ve got to support your local talent, and for these guys to be able to play on a stage with national and regional acts is really cool.”
This year’s lineup includes Lucinda Williams, Billy F Gibbons of ZZ Top, Jimmy Eat World, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Uncle Lucius, Quaker City Night Hawks, The Airborne Toxic Event and Justin Townes Earle plus many other great bands. As in years past, after-parties are also scheduled at local venues. (A full lineup can be found on its website at www.fwfest.com
The Fort Worth Music Festival is held in honor of Fort Worth’s deep musical roots. From musical pioneers and artists as diverse as Country Swing’s Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys to Jazz Icon Ornette Coleman to Contemporary Innovator T- Bone Burnett, Fort Worth residents have made an indelible imprint on the music of both our state and our country. The Fort Worth Music Festival is proud to showcase the various genres of music which have called our city home.
The 2014 Festival will present Alternative Country, Rhythm & Blues, Rock, Pop and Indie Pop, to the joy of any music aficionado or any local Texan proud of his hometown. In addition, the 2014 Fest will present exhibits and groovy local vendors. The Fort Worth Music Festival is a celebration of those things which make Fort Worth the vibrant, growing city it is.
