SACRAMENTO – With nearly 100 bands scheduled to perform at 20 venues during the 41st Annual Sacramento Music Festival & Jubilee, the special $99 four-day event badge price has been extended to all advance tickets leading up to the festival. 

Once the world-class musical event begins, four-day event badges will cost $110. The Sacramento Music Festival & Jubilee is scheduled over Memorial Day Weekend, May 23-26. 

A wide variety of musical styles will be featured at the 2014 Sacramento Music Festival, such as American roots rock, soulful and rockin’ blues, Cajun/zydeco, country, rockability, bluegrass, ragtime, early New Orleans jazz & swing, street beat, Latin music, big band, orchestras, banjo performances, dance and party bands, and more. Performance highlights each evening include the following:

• Friday, May 23 – high energy Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue will help get the 41st annual musical party started;

• Saturday, May 24 – along with popular local band Mumbo Gumbo, the talented singer/songwriter Mat Kearney will be the headline performance for the evening; 

• Sunday, May 25 – along with the funk and soul phenomenon Joy & Madness, the iconic American rock band Collective Soul – with seven #1 hits – will keep the musical momentum going. To the delight of music lovers, also performing on Sunday evening is the Stray Cat’s Lee Rocker and the legendary Texas Tornados. 

Successfully introduced last year, these headline acts will perform on a specially-designed main stage positioned on the iconic and sprawling “Turntable on the Green”, the large grassy area officially in front of the California State Railroad Museum

In addition to the nightly headline performances, the Sacramento Music Festival will showcase an impressive line-up of talented musicians and crowd-favorite bands that include (but are not limited to) the following: Deke Dickerson, Zydeco Flames, Garratt Wilkin & the Parrotheads, Wonder Bread 5, James Garner and the Cash Tribute Band, The Kyle Rowland Blues Band, Mick Martin & The Blues Rockers, Purple Haze Band and Two-Tone Steiny.
