BURLEY — A Twin Falls man will be hosting a series of concerts at the River’s Edge Golf Club marina in Burley this summer.
C.R. Larsen of Larsen Media received the Burley City Council’s nod of approval for the concerts last month.
“It’s going to be very relaxed, non-political and just food, beverages and music,” Larsen said.
The music, he said, will be a mix of rock and roll, classic rock, country and blues.
“It’s kind of a marriage of all genres,” Larsen said.
The first concert, Rockin’ The Snake 2018, will be held June 16 and feature headliner Foghat, with Dirty Johnny, Rough Draft, American Steel, Asphalt Buffet and 2 AM Logic.
“The concert will feature 10 hours of music in a family-friendly environment,” Larsen said.
The concert will run from noon to 10 p.m.
According to Burley City Council minutes, Larsen worked with the city fire chief to develop a fire plan.
The city will establish a fee for the events for the use of the park and a separate fee for use the golf driving range, which will be used for parking.
The city council decided not to use the city’s alcohol license for the event, but Larsen has his own license.
The Snake River Fry Fest will also be held over three days on Aug. 17-19 to coincide with the end of the Cassia County Fair and Rodeo.
The August fest will feature Quiet Riot, Hell’s Bells, Little Texas, Restless Heart, Art Mulcahy and Roadside Flare, Dead Fervor, Emily Stanton Band, Darci Carlson, Hair Nations, Washed in Black, Stargazer, Eric May, Dr. Crue Dogs on the Lam, Hysteria, Mirror Rim, Fallen Angel, Legends Fade, Dusty Leigh and the Claim Jumpers, Hurdy Gurdy Girls, Jonemery Dodds and Sissy Brown.
This is the inaugural year for the concert series, Larsen said.
Larsen chose Burley for the concerts because it is a “good, vibrant community,” and when he looked at the River’s Edge venue he thought it was a good location for the concerts.
During the concerts, there will be a fenced beer and wine garden and a fenced children’s area where the toys are located that will be staffed by kindergarten teachers.
“They will be doing games and things,” Larsen said.
Children under the age of 12 will be admitted free to the concerts when they are accompanied by a paying adult.
