Proceeds from this festival will benefit The Bolton Fair and help them sustain their 53 acre Fairgrounds. The Bolton Fair was established in 1874 and since their beginning they are run 100% by a volunteer staff as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please come out and enjoy a full day of live music, so that The Bolton Fair can continue to offer fun family events and festivals like this again next year. If you are unable to attend the concert, please consider donating. 100% of your tax deductible donations will go toward supporting the fair for future generations.

Danny Klein, founding member and "The Ace On Bass" for the mighty J. GEILS BAND rips through all of the J. GEILS songs you know and love with his own band of local heroes DANNY KLEIN'S FULL HOUSE. You'll hear... Centerfold, Freeze Frame, Musta Got Lost, Love Stinks, Whamma Jamma, Lookin For Love, First I Look at the Purse... and their hit song list goes on and on, and so does their House Party !!! Danny is fresh off a five city tour with Bon Jovi and the J Geils Band.

New England Blues Legend Bruce Marshall formed his band in 1991. They have released 6 CDs and performed throughout the US since their inception. Bruce Marshall is a former member of The Toy Caldwell Band (formed from the Marshall Tucker Band). Bruce has toured with Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Outlaws and Charlie Daniels, and shared the stage with BB King, The Doobie Brothers, Steven Tyler, Peter Frampton, John Hiatt, George Thorogood, Edgar Winter, and over 200 other National Acts.

Mike Slater sounds exactly like 'The King' himself he has toured in Canada, Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, New York, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and all over Massachusetts. Mike continuously plays on the Mount Washington Cruise Ship, at music venues, nursing homes, schools, private functions and corporate events. The Providence Journal published, "The best Elvis impersonator in New England, the third best in the country. So close to Elvis' voice it’s spooky!“

They exploded onto the Boston music scene in late 2009, and in a short time they attained the reputation of a band to be reckoned with in the New Blues Era. ThrowDown’s first release, “Let Sleeping Dogs Lie”, was selected for The 2012 International Blues Challenge, a competition in Memphis, TN. Their aggressive, take no prisoners, guitar-shredding, soul-screaming approach to music puts them in a hard-to-define, multi-genre, blues, and rock category.
