The Dixon May Fair is an annual event that celebrates the agricultural and rural aspects of its community in Dixon, California. But aside from the thrilling rides and mouthwatering food, what makes this fair worth going to is their musical entertainment. Each year, the fair’s stage hosts a range of performers that cater to different musical tastes. From new bands to old faves, there’s always something that can get you up and dancing.

This year, the Dixon May Fair’s musical line-up did not disappoint. Kicking off the fair’s entertainment was the show of a new band, the Bay Station Band. Hailing from Oakland, the Bay Station Band is a folk-rock Americana group that reinvents their music to create a distinct sound that is fresh and modern. Their performance was a mix of original songs and covers that resonated well with the crowd. They definitely left a mark on the Dixon May Fair stage, and we’re excited to see where their music career takes them.

But of course, there were also the old faves that everyone was looking forward to seeing. One band that was a crowd favorite was the Dave Russell Band. This four-piece country band from Vacaville has been playing at the Dixon May Fair for years now, and their fans are always excited to see them perform. They played a mix of classic country songs and modern hits that had the whole audience singing along. The energy that the Dave Russell Band brings to the stage is truly unmatched, and we can’t imagine a Dixon May Fair without them.

Another old fave that made a comeback to the Dixon May Fair stage was The Sun Kings. Playing a tribute to the Beatles, The Sun Kings have been performing for over a decade, delighting Beatles fans both young and old. Their performance at the Dixon May Fair was no exception as they played classic hits like “Twist and Shout”, “Hey Jude”, and “Let It Be”. The Sun Kings’ performance was a time machine that took us back to the ’60s, and everyone in the crowd had a blast.

The Dixon May Fair stage also showcased some local talent, one of them being the Dixon Band. Made up of high school students from Dixon, this marching band showcased their skills in playing traditional band music and making their own arrangements. They were a refreshing addition to the musical lineup, and we’re proud to have them represent our community.

Aside from the live bands, there were also DJs that kept the energy flowing in between acts. One DJ that stood out was DJ Arran, who played a mix of old-school and modern hip-hop tracks. If you needed a break from all the foot-tapping and hand-clapping that came with the live bands, DJ Arran’s sets were the perfect breather.

Overall, the musical entertainment at the Dixon May Fair was a smashing success. From new bands to old faves, there was something for everyone. The diversity in genre reflected the diverse audience that the fair attracts. There was not one dull moment on stage, and every performer that came up brought their A-game. The Dixon May Fair’s musical entertainment continues to be a highlight of the fair, and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next year.

In the end, the Dixon May Fair is not just about celebrating the agriculture and rural aspects of our community. It’s also about showcasing the talents and creativity of our artists and musicians. Events like this give them a platform to be heard and appreciated, and we are grateful for that. The Dixon May Fair promotes not just our traditions and history but also our present and future. And in times like these, where everything seems uncertain and unstable, events like this bring us together to celebrate what truly matters.
