A three-day music festival will kick off Aug. 8 in Adams County, bringing 180 bands to Gettysburg from 14 states and Washington.

Gettysburg Rocks will feature multiple genres of music including rock, country, blues, folk, ska and reggae, according to Rob Simon, the brainchild of the upcoming festival.

Simon, host of “Under The Radar” on 105.7 The X in Harrisburg, said he got the idea for Gettysburg Rocks from his daughter, Ashley, who was planning a fundraiser for Penn State Mont Alto’s THON group.

Exciting day at Birdland Studios In Lansdale

Spent the afternoon at a recording for broadcast of a two hour radio show featuring live musicians and a poet/novelist.  4+ hours of work go into a two hour show.  Met some amazingly talented people and learned alot.  Took some great pictures which I will be sharing with all of you along with a write up in the next few days when I get everything together! Made some new friends too!
