Dan Dooley, who has coordinated Summerfest entertainment for years, hand-picked the bands for Saline's summer party. At the main location, Summerfest will have two side-by-side stages, which eliminates downtown between acts.
If you love hanging out with friends while listening to songs everyone knows, you'll love the headliners Friday and Saturday night.
"On Friday night we have Atomic Radio playing a wide range of dance music from the Motown era to the current top 40. They are trying to keep the crowd dancing all night," Dooley said. "We also have the youth group called Earth Angels from Livonia that have choreographed routines to music from the 50’s to the 80s The Earth Angels bring to life the music from the 'Oldies,' with authentic costumes from the era in a fast moving show that appeals to audiences of all ages."
Saturday's lineup is diverse, with lots of local flavor.
The Saline Fiddlers Philharmonic, fresh from tour of Canada and the Northeast, play at noon. The Ann Arbor Music Center, which recently opened on Bennett Street in Saline, will have their School of Rock band perform at 1 p.m.
At 2 p.m., Dave Edwards takes the stage. Edwards was the lead singer from The Look - the first Detroit band to have a video on MTV.
