Music, Fun & Food Highlight May OBX Weekend

Music, Music, Music

There is so much happening on the Outer Banks this weekend that the only way to get to everything may be to strap on a jet pack and fly from event to event.

Saturday is the day a tough decision may have to be made…or split time between two the two events.

Sanctuary Vineyards kicks things off at noon on Saturday with their first ever Buns N Rosés – Grand Crü, BBQ and Brü 80’s Rock Party in Jarvisburg, A couple of wines will be coming out of the barrels, live music and local pit masters will be vying to see who makes the best barbecue around.

Shred Fest

Just two hours later, at 2:00 p.m., Shred Fest gets rolling at the Nags Head Event Site.

Shred Fest is a fund raiser for Dare 2 Care and a couple of local causes including area veterans, the special needs community and the Ruth Wyands Mustang Outreach Program that gives area kids a chance to learn how to perform on stage.

The headliner? Southern Culture on the Skids.

For anyone who has never seen S.C.O.T.S.—well, you’re in for a treat. Incredibly talented musicians performing an eclectic blend of country, rock and jazz, they never lose sight of how much fun it is to be on stage.

Mustang Spring Jam

For music lovers, Sunday brings the Mustang Music Spring Jam. Mike Dianna always does an outstanding job of bringing some of the best music around to the Outer Banks and it looks as though this year is no exceptions.

Big Soul is headlining, bringing to the stage a jazzy kind of a funk style. Hard to call London Soul a warmup act but they’re getting second billing. Expect a hard rock wall of sound done with talent and skill.

Ruth Wyand’s Mustang Music Outreach kids will start things off and they make it worth while to get there early. Some local talent on hand as well— Zack Mexico, and Graham Outten and Myles Wood’s new band The Ramble.

A nice touch for any Mike Dianna show—two stages…never a break in the music.

The weather is looking great for the weekend, so plan on being there.
