I’ve yet to experience the 2nd Street Festival for myself but with so many great acts (and several of my favorite artists) on the lineup I think I owe it to myself to check this festival out. And hopefully I’ll see you there too.

The Great Afternoon’s music is effortlessly enjoyable and makes my ears smile. Wow, Christina Ward has a great voice! Ward delivers powerful and solid lead vocals with a delightful tone. The other members of The Great Afternoon are Kris Knechel, and Brian Huggins. By the way, nice use of a banjo. Well, I’m still just getting to know this Lamberville, NJ based band but I definitely like what I hear.
Stop by The Great Afternoon’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/thegreatafternoon) if you want to hear their new EP. And if you’re as intrigued as I am by The Great Afternoon’s sound then you might want to catch an upcoming show – I know I will.
