Lamont Cranston


Lamont Cranston will take the Danielson Stage at 7 p.m. Friday July 19.

July promises two things, hot temperatures and even hotter entertainment at Amery’s second installment of 2019’s Music on the River.

Cool drinks and cool vibes will make Friday July 19 an experience not to miss. As always the event will offer a variety of food and beverage choices, along with a classic car show and unbelievable music.

Lamont Cranston will take the stage at 7 p.m. According to their website, “From the rural hometown settings of Hamel, Minnesota and the river banks of Minneapolis/St. Paul, the blues influence surfaced as early as the mid 1960s for what was to become The Lamont Cranston Blues Band. Pat (Lamont) Hayes (with his brother Larry) founded the band in 1969 and he hasn’t stopped driving the renowned boogie blues train of the one and only Lamont Cranston Band.” The Cranstons have shared bills with some of the biggest names in the industry including Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Kinks, Wilson Pickett, Bonnie Raitt and many more. The band has also been featured regularly on Dan Aykroyd’s House of Blues Radio Show.

The Git Backs, will open the July 19 show playing from 5-6:30 p.m. They are a Clear Lake band, and they say they play savage rock and roll from 1950-1965. The band lists Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Eddie Cochran, The Clash, Little Richard, The Beatles, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones and Creedence Clearwater Revival as influences.
