Following Sip and Sample, the popular Stone Pier Summer Concert Series will return to the West Stone Pier in Town Bay for its seventh season beginning at 6 p.m. and ending at dusk. On the shore of beautiful Black Hawk Lake, the concert series entertains both boaters on the lake and spectators on land.
The 2017 concert series kicks off with opener Josh Lawler, a Glidden, Iowa native who is no stranger to the Stone Pier Concert Series having previously played with band, The Young Funk. Headlining the event will be Ras Badjao & The Tarakis. Calling Des Moines, Iowa home, this band is a living testament to the international influence of Roots Reggae music. Badjao hails from the Province of Kalinga of the Philippines, and prior to moving to the United States had the privilege of opening for Ziggy Marley and headline smaller festivals with his band, Badjao Roots. The Tarakis is a collective of musicians who travel with Ras Badjao to support reggae music in Iowa. They feature artists from the Philippines, Puerto Rico and Chile, as well as Lake View native, Anne (Wetzstein) Stein.
The audience is encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating. Food and merchandise will be available for sale with all proceeds supporting the Concert Series. There is no admission charge or ticket required to attend the shows thanks to the support of the Series’ many generous sponsors including Boulders Inn & Suites, Iowa State Bank, St. Anthony Regional Hospital, MoveIt.com, and Stewart Memorial Community Hospital/McCrary Rost Clinic/Community Pharmacy.
