Adrian Ray Set for FridayFest on the Bay Tonight, 7/13

Adrian Ray, country rock star, is set for tonight, July 13th  ; the event begins at 5pm, with music from 5:30-9:00 pm.                

Born and raised in Aroostook County Maine, Adrian Ray has had an unwavering determination to make his mark in country music. After graduating from high school, he enlisted in the US Army, served his country and then embarked on a career as a civilian police officer. Somewhere in his heart, he knew he was destined for a new path, one that could satisfy his dreams.

From the moment he left his hometown and set out in his truck with his dog, a used guitar, and a saddle, he knew he was on the right “road” to his new career. Adrian Ray has taken country music to a whole new level! The release of his self titled album, which has been described as “Heavy Country”, truly bridges today’s Country Music with Classic Rock, a little bit of Southern Rock and a whole lot of Soul. You will be amazed at the show he puts on! Visit for more info.

Bring your blankets or lawn chairs and settle in to enjoy the music, sunset, food and beverage from local vendors, and get in on some great raffle prizes. Guided by emcee Cliff Roles, FridayFest takes place rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, the Festival will move indoors to the Main Hall of the Van Wezel.
