Home More News Victor Lawson & Boogie Chillen with Catfish Frye headline Lakeside Concert Series

Winged Deer Park’s Lakeside Concert Series continues from 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, June 13, at the park’s Lakefront Festival Plaza Goulding Amphitheatre when Victor Lawson & Boogie Chillen with Catfish Frye perform.

Lawson formed the group in 2010, which has since earned a reputation as a good-time party band that plays soulful blues, down-in-the-mud rock ‘n’ roll and funk. Lawson’s incendiary guitar playing and powerful performances have riveted audiences in Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia performing in bars, saloons, restaurants, festivals and wherever people gather for good times.

Catfish Frye has teamed with Lawson several times over the past few years, sharing the vocals and dishing out both old-school and modern-day harmonica chops sure to keep your feet stomping. Drummer Dan Morefield and bassist Jamey Gillenwater round out the rocking boogie bottom.

The concerts are free. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or folding chair and relax, or step out onto the amphitheater and shake it loose. The location offers easy access, free parking, concessions, a playground and an opportunity to make new friends or catch up with old ones. 

The lakeside concerts are from 7-9 p.m. each Thursday through Aug. 8 at Winged Deer Park, 199 Carroll Creek Road, Johnson City.
