A Celebration of Craft Beer and Roots Rock Music at Silver Cross FieldSeptember 11, 2012 - Frontier League (FL) Joliet Slammers
The event is being brought to fans by the Slammers, Chicago Street Pub and NextMedia .
"Ever since I can remember, my family has always been enthusiastic about sharing music with each other," Chicago Street Pub owner Mike Trizna said. "Old music, new music...didn't matter. Just the idea that you could make someone a little happier by introducing them to music that is new to them. For years we have been doing that at Chicago Street Pub on a small scale. I have always wanted to do something just a little bigger, and the time and place is finally here."
"We are happy to partner with Chicago Street Pub and NextMedia to bring a fun community event to Silver Cross Field," Slammers President Bill Waliewski said. "We hope this is something we will build on the future and make bigger and bigger each year."
