Banger Mayes, a long time resident of Grants Lick Kentucky and supporter of Bluegrass and American Roots music, will be honored through the first annual Bluegrass and American Roots festival – The “Banger Mayes” Festival or Mayesfest. Located in his own backyard, the Bellevue Beach Park, alongside the banks of the majestic Ohio River, will feature a one day bonanza of local and regional Bluegrass and American Roots bands on two stages. Stretching multiple blocks of riverfront, festivities will include a variety of regional food, beverages and merchandise. Queen City boat tours will be an additional element to the event offering one hour tours up and down the Ohio River, where traditional music lovers can hear live riverboat music, bar service, and enjoy views from the mighty Ohio. Tickets will be sold in advance or onsite $10.  Come down to Bellevue and enjoy Bluegrass the way it should be – “Banger Mayes” style!
