The fourth annual Brews & BBQ festival — originally set for May and then rescheduled due to rain — finally takes place this weekend at Ives Concert Park in Danbury. Saturday, July 22, is when it all happens, including a concert by the Spin Doctors.
Organizers said previously purchased tickets will be honored at Saturday’s event. Chris Barron, who fronts the band, said he’s looking forward to sampling a beer or two, as well as some barbecue, after the show. Barron shared more in an interview with Hearst Connecticut Media, earlier this year.
“We’re still the original guys, which is very unusual,” Barron said, of the Grammy-nominated group best known for its early 1990s hits, such as “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong.”
The Spin Doctors will play fan favorites at the festival, then delve into some deeper cuts for their hard-core fans. Barron, who lives in Manhattan with his wife and two cats, also shared that a new album drops this fall.
Opening the show will be Easton resident David Robushi, with his wife Deena and their band Moonshine, paying tribute to today’s country music. Robushi, who has headlined at Mohegan Sun, said he’s happy to perform at Ives Concert Park, especially since he lived in Danbury for 10 years and has never played Ives before.
“Brews & BBQ,” with hosts including Townsquare Media, i95 and Kicks 105.5, is pretty much a big outdoor party. Aside from the Spin Doctors and Moonshine, music will be provided by The Renegades. There will also be plenty of food and beer from numerous vendors.
Ives Concert Park, Western Connecticut State University Westside Campus, 43 Lake Ave. Ext., Danbury. Saturday, July 22, 3 to 9 p.m. $20 at gate, $15 in advance. Advance tickets include first beer for free (must be 21 or older). 203-837-9226.
