The Avett Brothers return to Bethlehem to close out Musikfest.

It’s not every day that your favorite band hits the road for a tour. And, it’s definitely not every day that they happen to make a stop in the town where you live. But if you’re a fan of the Avett Brothers like I am, you’re lucky enough to have them make an appearance twice within the last two years at Musikfest.

This year, the Avett Brothers returned to close out Musikfest 2016 as part of a tour supporting their new album True Sadness. With support from Langhorne Slim, a native of Langhorne, PA, the night promised to be full of music that would hit every emotion, from tugging at your heart strings to stomping and clapping as you dance in the aisles.

Don Henley brings classic rock to Musikfest.

Musikfest. Don Henley. Need I say more? The Eagles music mastermind put on one incredible show to what seemed to be a sold-out crowd Wednesday night at the Sands Steel Stage at Musikfest in Bethlehem.

It was a balmy 90-plus degrees, with humidity making it feel like it was close to 100, but that didn’t stop the fans from moving to the music of this nearly 70-year old performer. Henley played for nearly two and a half hours adorned with jeans, a rolled up button down shirt, and his iconic vest.

X Ambassadors perform at the Sands Steel Stage during Musikfest 2016.

Excitement and anticipation lit up the air on the opening night of Musikfest. Opening the show were piano rockers Jukebox the Ghost, who played a free concert at the Levitt Pavilion at Steelstacks earlier in the summer months. Rachel Platten performed a heartfelt performance talking about the struggles of show business in her own life. The crowd was invigorated by her popular songs  “Fight Song” and “Stand by You.”

Nighttime fell and X Ambassadors took the stage with an incendiary presence. The soul funk band hailing from Ithaca, NY provided the perfect set to kick off ten days of Musikfest fun. Multi-talented lead singer Sam Harris kept the audience engaged from start to finish. The most commanding moment may have been before the hit song “Renegades.” Harris provoked the audience to think about unity and making a positive change in the world.
