Originally scheduled for June 24, the first Summerfest was rained out and rescheduled. It will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 12 at Torzewski County Park. dB’s L.I.V.E. owner Deb Barber has been involved in the Lost in the Woods Festival for the past four years, and while that show features some of the student bands from dB’s L.I.V.E., it also includes other local musicians, and functions as a fundraiser. Summerfest will feature all Barber’s student bands with a couple inspirational guest performances as well — Season 14 American Idol runner-up Jena Irene Asciutto and Genavieve Linkowski, a Goodrich resident who made it to Hollywood earlier this year in American Idol.

“It’s cool for these kids to see these people out there going for American Idol,” said Barber. “They’re just like them — going for their dream.”

Anyone who would like to learn more about dB’S L.I.V.E. can come to Summerfest for a taste of the variety the nine different student bands contain. Everyone from the Young Bloods — Barber’s youngest band — to the parent band, AParent MLC (short for midlife crisis, Barber said), will be showcased at the free outdoor festival.

In addition, Barber said, she did a competition among local “garage bands,” and some of them will be playing at the festival as well.
