Sounds and Sights Festival: What’s up for Saturday

Brett Bingham picks a duck from the duck pond Friday.

Here’s a look at what’s happening on Saturday at the 37th Annual Sounds and Sights Festival, which features Fifty Amp Fuse as the evening’s headline entertainment.

Fifty Amp Fuse

Todd Ortbring, festival marketing coordinator, said “This is the band’s third or fourth year in a row at the festival, and people love them.”

“Whether rocking the USS Midway in San Diego, the House of Blues in Las Vegas, the Experience Music Project in Seattle, or Ford Field in their hometown of Detroit, Fifty Amp Fuse is the ultimate live music experience,” he said.

The band has become a favorite band for the celebrity set, corporations and organizations, festivals, cool music joints and private events, Ortbring said.
