Published 12:00 am Friday, June 25, 2004

Ironton-based band Fat Mac Daddy will take the stage at 6:30 p.m., followed by The Fugitives at 8 p.m.

A popular local band of the 1960s, original members Tim Kleinman (drums), Todd Smith (vocals) and Danny Young, reunited in 2002, with new recruit Greg Sierer (guitar). This was the first time the band had played together in 35 years.

During their heyday, not only did the band play venues in the Tri-State, but they also played at large clubs in New York. Acts such as The Young Rascals, Paul Revere and the Raiders, and Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars shared the stage with the Fugitives.

Fat Mac Daddy started in the 1980s as Three Wheel Drive. Although the group never really broke up, its members went their separate ways, to pursue other projects in the music industry. Eighteen years later, the group reformed as Fat Mac Daddy.

The band is known for its

three-part harmony, high energy dance music and  light show.

Those attending the festival are asked to bring something to sit in when they come to the concerts and other stage activities.
