Friday night entertainment announced for LakeFest

La PORTE, IN (Apr. 13, 2023) - The City of La Porte unveiled today its entertainment lineup for the Friday night of this summer’s LakeFest, according to Park Superintendent Mark Schreiber.

Catalina Wine Mixer, a 70’s tribute band, will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 28 at Stone Lake Beach. Schreiber said those with boats are once again invited to float in near the shore and enjoy the “yacht rock” from the water. The entertainment begins that evening with a DJ playing favorites beginning at 6 p.m. Across town that evening, Justin Roberts, a Grammy-nominated children’s artist, will perform a family-friendly concert at 7 p.m. at the Dennis F. Smith Amphitheater in Fox Park. Opening the show will be Kalita Magic at 6 p.m. Both shows are free to the public and open to all ages. Schreiber said with both shows covering different genres and aimed at different demographics, there should be something for everyone to enjoy that night. 

"Over the last two years of LakeFest and continuing this summer, our entertainment has covered a fairly wide range of genres, giving people plenty of options,” Schreiber said. “We love the idea of creating an opportunity for everyone to find something they enjoy at LakeFest, which is why we are again offering two vastly different entertainment lineups. We hope to see a full crowd at both shows.” 

Schreiber said Latin music and dancing for Fiesta del Lago will also return on Sunday, July 30, in Fox Park. The big announcement on the featured concert on Saturday, July 29, will be released in the coming days.

Justin Roberts

Four-time GRAMMY nominee Justin Roberts is one of the founders of the modern family music scene. For 25 years, Roberts has been creating the soundtrack to families’ lives, helping kids navigate the joys and sorrows of growing up, while inspiring parents to remember their own childhoods. His songs are the kind of get-stuck-in-your-head pop nuggets that draw comparisons to Elvis Costello, Fountains of Wayne, and Paul Simon rather than simple nursery rhymes, prompting USA Today to call him “hands-down the best songwriter in the genre.” Along with his band, the Not Ready for Naptime Players, Justin has traveled the globe, from Hong Kong to New York, and Miami to Seattle.
