The Fredericksburg Rappahannock Rotary Club presents the

FXBG Music Blast

The Music Blast “All Things Country” is an annual event brought to you by the Fredericksburg Rappahannock Rotary Club. Rotary strives to make the world a better place, and funds raised from the Fredericksburg Music Blast will be used wisely to invest in noble efforts in Fredericksburg and beyond.

The main focus of this event is to bring the community together and give back to the local not-for-profit community. As the host of this fantastic community concert, we are honored to have sponsors partner with
us. They show our community the passion of local business owners by living the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” and supporting our local non-profits that are so important for a healthy and vibrant Fredericksburg.
On Saturday, April 27, prepare for an incredible country music experience at The Fredericksburg Fairgrounds. The Fredericksburg Music Blast includes a variety of seven country music acts, including headliners Radio Romance and Sam Grow and several feature acts including Fredericksburg’s own Karen Jonas.

The Fredericksburg Music Blast will take the audience on an all day celebration of American life and “All Things Country”! During the shows, concert goers will enjoy a magical experience: they will feel the driving energy of country music and explore the power of love and loss and everyday American life through the artists’ lyrics. The 2019 Fredericksburg Music Blast will be an event you will never forget!

The line-up of musicians is incredible: Radio Romance, Sam Grow, Scott McMillen, Karen Jonas, Whiskey Revival, Emma Zinck Band, and Enya Agerholm. General Admission tickets are an unbelievable value at $20, and there is a $5 discount for military and first responders.

So come out and join us on stage as we give checks to local not-for-profits and honor them for their work in our community. If you are interested in supporting this event please visit our website www.fxbgmusicblast.com and click on the link: “Get Involved.”

We would like to give a special thanks to Kevin Breen of Coldwell Banker Elite as our title sponsor for this event and Thunder 104.5 for their partnership on making this a success!
