A LYNCHBURG TRADITION
Summer in Lynchburg is synonymous to live music and great food with family and friends. MG Productions' premier outdoor concert series, Cheers to the Weekend, will be held on Summer 2017, with a stellar line-up of bands you won't want to miss, at one of Lynchburg’s most beautiful outdoor venues. Enjoy amazing local and national bands; alongside Lynchburg's hometown talent.
In 2016, MG Productions stepped in to host and produce Friday Cheers with the blessing of Lynch’s Landing. A Lynchburg summer tradition that brought thousands of people together each Friday for 6 consecutive weeks; the largest multi-weekend music series at the Riverfront Park.
This year, Cheers to the Weekend! stands to promote live music and a wholesome community-event. We are also supporting the work of our local community partner Hill City Crash; a program that uses basketball as a vehicle to mentor young men in our area to help keep them in a safe, positive environ- ment that fosters academic excellence and ultimately help them reach their full potential. Our international non-profit partner is CCEH, a Haitian organization which is organized exclusively for charitable causes and purposes, dealing specifically with social issues facing marginalized Haitian Communities; with an orphanage serving the Haitian youth in Port-au Prince.
TRutledge formed in 2009 and wasted no time in sharing the stage with many national artists. Sharing the stage with artists such as, Lee Brice,Montgomery Gentry, Old Dominion, Brothers Osborne, LoCash, Eli Young Band, Casadee Pope, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band John Rich, David Nail, Rodney Atkins, Lauren Alaina, High Valley, Big Kenny, John Michael Montgomery, Steel Magnolia, Emerson Drive, Craig Campbell, Frankie Ballard, Logan Mize, The Farm, Steve Holy, Mountain Heart, Ted Nugent, STYX, REO Speedwagon, Daryle Singletary, Mark Wills, Andy Griggs and Stealing Angels, gave Rutledge the exposure they needed to become one of the areas most popular bands. Playing today’s country hits and originals Rutledge puts on a high energy live show that shouldn’t be missed. One of the bands strengths is that they write their own songs.
"Our songs are a little different but very familiar and instantly recognizable" says Lead Singer Adam Rutledge. In 2011 Rutledge released their first music video for their single “I Love My Life” to rave reviews. Rutledge continues to record and release singles and play to packed venues as they work their way to their first big break.
DJ Ed, also known as Jack Edma, was born in the United States but lived most of his young life in the Republic of Haiti in the Caribbean..
