What is the Dylanfest?
The Dylanfest is a seven & ½ hour celebration of the music of Bob Dylan. We started it in 1991 and have been holding the event ever since. The show started with our band, The Management and a few friends doing 4 sets of Bob Dylan songs and has grown to a 7-hour event with over 60 musicians performing over 60 Dylan songs. Our band, Hard Rain, is the "house band", and we are joined by solo artists, full bands and instrumentalists throughout the course of the day.
Tickets are $25 for Adults and $10 for Children ages 6-12. Children under 6 are free. Go to www.andyandrenee.com to purchase tickets and for more info. The event is also a fundraiser for the school.
