Del Yeah is back and bigger than beforeâ€¦.and this time itâ€™s hitting the Midwest!Â After very successful 2010 & 2011 labor day weekends, Del McCoury music is excited to announce the 3rdÂ annual â€˜Del Yeahâ€™ weekend – a multi-day, multi-venue â€˜happeningâ€™ taking place over Labor Day weekend.. The idea of Del Yeah is to create a festival atmosphere in an outdoor setting or otherwise non-traditional venue complete with impromptu jams and unscheduled collaborations.
Initial plans include shows on August 31st, and September 1stÂ and 2ndÂ featuring the award-winning Del McCoury Band and their friends Emmitt-Nershi Band, Mountain Sprout, Cornmeal Â and many others joining along the way. Shows will be programmed for a full afternoon and eveningâ€™s worth of music and entertainment, culminating in closing jam sessions that will have audiences on the edge of their seats or dancing to the music all night long.
