MARCH 30, 2018:
Since 1987, Clovis has been rocking its musical heritage, so it only makes sense that for its 31st birthday, the Clovis Music Festival will rock out more than ever. The Clovis Music Festival and Draggin’ Main have become one huge event and is now Clovis’ Draggin Main Music Festival. Chairman Derek Cockrell says “this is going to be one of the biggest and most exciting events of the year, one you’ll definitely want to be a part of!”
Wednesday, June 27 will be the start of the three night concert series beginning with country artist Doug Stone. Between 1990 and 1995, Doug charted four Number Ones: “In a Different Light”, “A Jukebox and a Country Song”, “Too Busy Being in Love”, and “Why Didn’t I think of That”, and eleven more Top Ten singles. Doug also has an acting career and can be seen in the 1995 film “Gordy,” and 2013 remake of the great movie “Bonnie and Clyde.”
Norman and Vi Petty were our local musical pioneers and we are thankful that they gave us reason to celebrate. To pay homage to our rock and roll heritage, we will be honoring the late Bobby Vee with a tribute show. Bobby Vee recorded with Norman and Vi at their historical studios right here in Clovis. He also performed frequently at many Clovis Music Festivals. The Remembering Bobby Vee show will be featuring The Killer Vees on Thursday, June 28.
And that’s not all. On Friday, June 29, Clovis really gets in gear as rockers Warrant perform with special guest Steelheart. Warrant’s Cherry Pie album, which spawned the massive MTV & radio hits “Cherry Pie,”“Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and “I Saw Red,” went on to sell 3 million copies in the U.S. Steelheart’s hits like “She’s Gone,” ”I’ll Never Let You Go (Angel Eyes),” and “We All Die Young” will be part of the massive Friday night lineup.
Tickets will be on sale soon and prices for the Wednesday show will be $25 in advance, $35 at the door. Thursday tickets will be $25 in advance and $35 at the door. Advanced tickets for Friday’s show will have premium seating options ranging from $40-$60 and general admission will be $30; all tickets will have a $10 increase at the door.
