Red Truck Beer to celebrate 5 years of the Truck Stop Concert Series with 2 great 2019 events
Time flies when you’re having fun, and the first four years of the Truck Stop Concert Series have certainly flown by, with 2019 marking the 5th edition of this signature East Vancouver celebration.
Since opening the doors of their East Van brewery and launching the Truck Stop Concert Series, Red Truck Beer has hosted some of Vancouver’s most memorable summer days. This year, they’re ready to roll with two great shows to be held on June 15th and July 20th.
The June 15th show will be headlined by Victoria indie rock heroes Current Swell and include a line-up of bands playing all the sounds of summer from surf rock to funk and R&B. Confirmed bands include Calgary/Montreal funksters Freak Motif, progressive soul and R&B duo Dirty Radio, soulful singer Dino DiNicolo, indie blues-rockers Wooden Horsemen, and openers Old Soul Rebel who wowed the judges on The Launch with their powerhouse blend of rock and soul.
It wouldn’t be a Red Truck summer without a little country hoedown and July 20th will see the return of the legendary country party in the parking lot at the Truck Stop. US recording artist Devin Dawson will be the star attraction, touring his debut album “Dark Horse” which hit #5 on the US country charts. He’ll be supported by Vancouver-based CCMA nominee JoJo Mason, local roots rock favourites The Matinée, brother act The Abrams, Juno Award winners and renowned hillbillies Tim & the Glory Boys, and rising next generation country singer-songwriter Becca Hess.
Both shows will feature two stages for non-stop music, free-flowing ice-cold craft beer, food trucks, and a full day of music festival vibes right in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
Ticket sales will open during the first week of April and full information about the 2019 Truck Stop Concert Series can be found at www.truckstopconcertseries.com and on social media at @truckstopconcertseries. Presented in partnership with the Georgia Straight and JR-FM, the Truck Stop Concert Series at Red Truck Beer is the place to be this summer!
