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.
