Event Details

August 14, 6:30 pm – 8 pm –  The Splinters
All concerts at the Harris Pavilion – Rain or Shine!

Each year, the ARTfactory, in partnership with Micron, the City of Manassas and the Harris Pavilion offers a series of free concerts. The popular concerts are scheduled on Saturday evenings throughout the summer. Bring your chairs, blankets, and picnics to enjoy these concerts with your friends and neighbors!

SummerSounds is partially supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Splinters draw on influences that cross all kinds of style “boundaries” (yeah, like music should have boundaries, right?). The quick answer is, “It’s kind of Americana. You know, a mash-up of bluesy, rootsy rock and roll, old country, alt-country, bluegrass and New Orleans funk. Only different.” It’s songs with meaning, songs that tell stories, songs that sound familiar, even if you’ve never heard them before. However you describe it, it’s a sound that has been getting audiences to clap, stomp, cheer, dance, sing along and turn out in droves (it’s a word. No, really). The band members have been making music across this great land we call “here” for longer than they care to admit to, but that experience shows in their tight playing, punchy rhythms and close harmonies.
