Haynes Apperson Festival concerts for the 2019 event include:


Thurs, July 4 featuring Quiet RiotQuiet Riot is a rock & roll phenomenon famously described as the first heavy metal band to top the pop chart at #1 on Billboard magazine, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album Metal Health. A few of their biggest hit songs include “Metal Health (Bang Your Head),” “Come on feel the Noize” and “Mama We’re All Crazee Now”.


Fri, July 5 featuring Spin Doctors.  It was 1991’s Pocket Full Of Kryptonite that exploded in 1992 and marched towards 10 million sales. The numbers were staggering. But it was the Spin Doctors’ capacity to reinvent themselves throughout the unfolding decade that confirmed their status as a great American band. Long-term strategy has never been the Spin Doctors’ style. Thirty years. A thousand twists. But whatever happens down the road, rest assured that the Spin Doctors will always be making music like their lives depend on it, still riding the bus, still shaking the room. A few of their biggest hit songs include “Two Princes,” “Jimmy Olsen’s Blues,” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong”.

Sat, July 6 featuring The Marshall Tucker Band.  The Marshall Tucker Band was awarded seven gold and three platinum albums while on the Capricorn Records label. During the ‘90s, the band scored four hit singles on Billboard‘s country chart and one on Billboard‘s gospel chart. Country Music Television named “Can’t You See” the No. 4 Greatest Southern Rock Song and their debut album, The Marshall Tucker Band, reigns as Gibson Guitar‘s No. 5 Greatest Southern Rock Album and in 2013, GRAMMY® Magazine named the group’s logo as one of the most distinctive and iconic brands in music. A few of their biggest hit songs include “Heard It In A Love Song,” “Can’t You See,” and “Fire on the Mountain”.
