ROCHESTER, Mich. — Paint Creek Center for the Arts (PCCA) today unveiled its entertainment line-up for the 51st Art & Apples Festival.

Returning festival favorites include Denise Davis and the Motor City Sensations, a Motown- inspired revue that had patrons, artists and sponsors dancing at last year’s event, and the Hubbell Street Band, a more classical group that performs across several genres such as light rock, retro tunes (40s-80s) and jazz. There are several new performers in the 2016 lineup, such as LL7, a high-energy Latin jazz band as well as country musician Big Blue World.

“We’ve put together a stellar entertainment lineup of regional acts this year,” said Tami Salisbury, executive director, PCCA. “From jazz and country musicians to an energetic contemporary dance troupe, festival-goers will be mesmerized and inspired by the talent of these performance artists.”

All performances will be located on the main stage in the Rochester Municipal Park and are family-friendly and upbeat. The event will run Friday, Sept. 9 through Sunday, Sept. 11.
