Published 2:15 pm Tuesday, April 3, 2018

Sweetland Amphitheatre announced a new music series on Tuesday in partnership with Wild Leap Brew Co. and sponsored by Pure Life Studios. The three-part concert series will be hosted by Wild Leap Brewing Co. on the outdoor plaza stage or inside of the brewhouse, depending on weather conditions.

  • Saturday, June 9: The Steel Woods with special guest Drew Dixon
  • Saturday, Aug. 4: Jon Stickley Trio with special guests Grandpa’s Cough Medicine and 10 String Symphony
  • Friday, Sept. 7: Rebirth Brass Band with special guests Maggie Koerner and Front Porch Collective

The three-part series will feature national, regional and local acts, showcasing genres of music from southern rock to bluegrass to funk and soul. Local food vendors will be present at each concert. In addition to the wide variety of craft beers offered by Wild Leap Brew Co., Sweetland will offer wine and mixed beverages.

Ticket prices for each concert will be $15 in advance and $20 on the night of the concert. Series tickets will be available for $40 from April 5 until April 30, which will grant access to all three concerts. All concerts will be general admission, standing room only with limited seating available. Single tickets go on sale April 6 at 10 a.m. All concerts are for all ages.

“We’re huge fans of what Sweetland has done in bringing quality national and regional artists to LaGrange over the last few years.” said Wild Leap co-founder Rob Goldstein in a press release. “With our new Live at Wild Leap series, we’ve been booking some of the best local artists around. This partnership with Sweetland offers something new for both of us, inviting regional and national artists to take over the brewery for the night to offer a smaller, more intimate setting. Some shows will take place in the brewhouse, while others will be on the outdoor stage.”

“Sweetland is very excited about this partnership with Wild Leap and Pure Life to showcase a multitude of talent in Downtown LaGrange,” said Sweetland Director Keyal Loveland in a press release. “The wonderful thing about this series is whether you have heard of these bands or not, you will be blown away by each performance. Many may remember The Steel Woods opening for Blackberry Smoke last year at Sweetland. We knew we had to have them back in LaGrange.”
