Dates announced for 2020 Mustang music events

Phenomenal live music and delicious food is what Bearded Face Productions has in store for Mustang Spring Jam 9 and the Third Annual Mustang Rock & Roast, which will return to Mike Dianna’s Grill Room in Corolla for two fun-filled weekends this year.

“It doesn’t get much better than music, food and fun, that’s our specialty,” said producer and owner of Bearded Face Productions Mike Dianna. “I want to thank all of our sponsors and patrons for a rockin’ 2019 and I am looking forward to sharing more good times with you all this year. I have been listening to a lot of new music and I am excited to go to some shows this winter. Mustang Spring Jam 9 and the Third Annual Mustang Rock & Roast will showcase more than 20 nationally touring bands. Our fans are going to be stoked on this year’s lineups.”

Mustang Spring Jam 9 will be held the weekend of May 16-17. Spring Jam will span across two full days for the first time, with more live music than the event has ever hosted. New for 2020, Mustang Spring Jam will feature a grilled cheese cook-off on Sunday.

A special Road To Mustang Rock & Roast summer series will be coming to some of the Outer Banks’ best music venues in June, July and August.

A barbecue cook-off on Saturday, October 17 plus an oyster roast on Sunday, October 18 coupled with nonstop funk, rock n’ roll, jam and blues music all weekend will make the Third Annual Mustang Rock & Roast the ultimate end of the season party in Corolla.

Restaurant owners interested in participating in the grilled cheese cook-off at Spring Jam or the barbecue cook-off at Rock & Roast can contact Mike Dianna at beardedfaceproductions@gmail.com to reserve their spots early.

General admission and VIP tickets for both of the family-friendly events will be available at MustangMusicFestival.com, Mike Dianna’s Grill Room and Trio in Kitty Hawk when the full music lineups are announced.

A portion of the proceeds from Mustang Spring Jam 9 and the Third Annual Mustang Rock & Roast will go to the Mustang Outreach Program and the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. The Mustang Outreach Program supplements the cultural arts programs in local schools with world-class music performances, residencies and mentoring programs. The Corolla Wild Horse Fund protects, conserves and responsibly manages the herd of wild Colonial Spanish Mustangs roaming freely on the northernmost Currituck Outer Banks.

Businesses interested in sponsoring Mustang Spring Jam 9 or the Third Annual Mustang Rock & Roast can email Mike Dianna at beardedfaceproductions@gmail.com.
