LANSING, Mich. — Officials announce seven final acts for the 10th annual Common Ground Music Festival, presented by Miller Lite, to be held July 6-12, 2009. Darius Rucker, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic, Edgar Winter, Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Trailer Choir and the BoDeans have confirmed their appearances at this year’s festival week in Adado Riverfront Park.

Grammy award winner, Darius Rucker, will perform on the Pearle Vision stage on Friday, July 10. Rucker first began his career as the lead singer/co-writer for Hootie & the Blowfish. Rucker has since crossed over to country music and released his first hit, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” co-written by Rucker with Clay Mills, which soared into the top 15 at radio. He is also known for “It Won’t Be Like This For Long.”

George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic will perform on the Pearle Vision Stage on Tuesday, July 7. Clinton was the mastermind of the bands Parliament and Funkadelic during the 1970s and early 1980s, and became a solo funk artist in 1981. Clinton has been called one of the most important innovators of funk music, next to James Brown and Sly Stone. He was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, with 15 other members of Parliament-Funkadelic.

Edgar Winter and Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg will perform on the Capital Region International Airport stage on Wednesday, July 8. Edgar Winter’s music encompasses many different genres, including blues, jazz, pop and rock. Winter is well known for his hits “Frankenstein” and “Free Ride.”

Marky Ramone is best known for the 15 years he spent with the Ramones as a drummer, performing songs such as: “Blitzkrieg Bop” and “I Wanna Be Sedated.” Since the Ramones retired in 1996, the Ramones became the first punk band to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, and Marky has begun touring with his new band, Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg.

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, often associated with Bruce Springsteen, will perform on the Capital Region International Airport stage on Saturday, July 11. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes have been performing for more than 30 years; they are well-known for the hit “I Don’t Want To Go Home.” The band has produced 28 albums, one of which — “Hearts of Stone” — was named one of the “top 100 albums of the 70s and 80s” by Rolling Stone.

Trailer Choir will also perform on Saturday, July 11. After opening for numerous Toby Keith shows, and performances at the CMA Music Festival and National Finals Rodeo, this band earned About.com's Best New Country Duo/Group for 2008. Trailer Choir is known for its songs: "Off The Hillbilly Hook," featured in the movie and soundtrack for Beer For My Horses; "My Next Five Beers;" "Rollin' Through The Sunshine;" "Rockin' The Beer Gut;" "Last Man Standing," used by ESPN and ABC in a national NASCAR promotion; and their latest single, "What Would You Say," written about the Sago Mine disaster.

The BoDeans are taking the stage on Saturday, July 11 as well. This American-roots rock band is well known for the Party of Five theme song, “Closer To Free.” The song made it into Billboard’s Top 10 and earned an ASCAP award in 1996 for being one of the most played songs on the radio that year. The band is also known for its hit “If It Makes You,” which made it to the top ten charts and stayed there for weeks.
