The producers of Smoke in the Valley and Freedom Beer Fest are bringing Pour at the Shore to Short Beach in Stratford, CT on May 13th. This is a craft beer festival and home brew competition with live music, food trucks and artisans. Music videos from the bands embeded below. DISCLOSURE: I am the owner of Pour at the Shore, LLC.
The band lineup for PatS was announced last week. Headlining will be The Hempsteadys. This 12 peron Ska / Fumk / Raggae band is the 2016 Whalie Award Album of the Year winner. They are from New London, CT, just a short trip down the coast.
You will be stoked after hearing The Surfalicious Dudes play their cruisin Cali surf music. They hail from Germantown, NY, but their fast driving beach-sound comes all the way from the 1970s west coast.
