PELHAM— After drawing crowds of more than 6,000 people to last year’s Pelham Palooza featuring Ecosmith, the city of Pelham released the seven bands that will perform at the July 16 Just Show Up Show at the Oak Mountain Amphitheatre.
“We are so excited to partner again this year with 103.7 the Q and the Oak Mountain Amphitheatre to do the Just Show Up Show at Pelham Palooza,” said Pelham Palooza event coordinator Paula Holly. “This year we are bringing in seven artists, so there will be something for everyone to enjoy.”
Jordan Fisher, AJR, Nick Fradiani, Emblem, Ben Rector and Daya will take the stage at the concert followed by headliner Bebe Rexha, according to a recent release on the Pelham Palooza Facebook page.
Bebe Rexha is an electropop/pop singer and songwriter best known for her song “No Broken Hearts,” featuring rapper Nicki Minaj. She was also featured in Cash Cash’s “Take Me Home,” David Guetta’s “Hey Mama” and in the G-Eazy duet of “Me, Myself & I.”
“The Echosmith show at the Pelham Palooza Just Show Up Show brought in 6,400 people,” Holly said. “We look forward to meeting and surpassing that Just Show Up Show.”
Pelham Palooza will kick off Saturday, July 16 at 9 a.m. at the Pelham Civic Complex and Ice Arena. Attendees can peruse multiple vendors and children’s activities or participate in demonstrations and free ice-skating.
DJ Thomas Nails with Blaze Entertainment will play tunes and performers, such as Grebel Dance and Magic by Kevin, will also take the main indoor stage.
Outside, guests can take a turn on the free bungee trampoline or cool off with shaved ice. More surprises are still to come according to Holly.
The entire event wraps up with the 103.7 the Q’s Just Show Up Show at 7 p.m. at the Oak Mountain Amphitheatre.
