Lu-Ray Park & Amphitheater/Bard Distillery

This morning, news came that Bard Distillery will be the Title Sponsor of the “Something for Everyone” 2019 Concert Season. This is a game-changer for Lu-Ray Park & Amphitheater and Muhlenberg County!

Lu-Ray Executive Director Melissa Reck stated,This is great day for Lu-Ray. We are thrilled that Bard Distillery has agreed to partner with us and be our season sponsor for 2019.”  Reck went on to add, “This is a break out year for us. Folks are coming to Central City from over 30 states and 4 countries. We are presenting world-class shows such as 1964 the Tribute, John Prine, Dylan Scott, Vanilla Ice, and many more. We were seeking that perfect partner to share our vision to make it happen. We found that with Bard Distillery.

Kim Carter Bard, Co founder of Bard Distillery added,Lu-Ray Park & Amphitheater is creating a new legacy, providing us with an incredible venue to showcase why we live here, and why others should come visit!  Lu-Ray has the same vision that we have at The Bard Distillery, which is to breathe new life into our community, and put Muhlenberg County on the map again.  For us, it's a perfect fit.

Thomas Bard, Co-Founder of Bard Distillery, stated, "I'm really excited about Lu-Ray's  2019 Summer Concert Series. I'm a big fan of outdoor concerts and events, so to have such a great line-up coming to Central City this year, and for our new distillery to be a part of it, is a huge thrill for me!"

We are all excited and can't wait for the 2019 Season to get underway!
