The Steve Miller Band and Emerson Drive have been added to the stellar line-up for the 17th annual Merritt Mountain Music Festival. The two bands are scheduled to perform Friday, July 10, 2009.
The Steve Miller Band emerged from San Francisco’s summer of love with a sound that was distinctively different from its peers with songs like Take the Money and Run, Rockin’ Me, Jet Airliner, The Joker, Fly Like An Eagle, Livin’ in the USA and Abracadrabra. The band has sold a cumulative 25 million records and is still a mainstay of the summer concert season.
Emerson Drive make a return visit to Mountainfest. They have become even more popular entertaining crowds with their high-energy show all over Canada and the U.S. Their high-voltage fun, romantic and lush harmonies can be heard in songs like Looking Over My Shoulder, It’s All About You and Moments.
Kenny Chesney and Johnny Reid perform Saturday, July 11. More artists from the line-up will be announced soon. Early bird ticket deadline is Dec. 15. Reserved seating, full event and single day tickets. Reserved camping and VIP upgrades available online at www.ticketmaster.ca or by calling 1-888-7-MERRITT.
