Welcome to the Salt City Rock and Blues Community.


We are committed to building community through music. We believe music adds vitality to communities, captivates the brain, and nurtures a sense of belonging and connection with others. Music is able to bring a diverse group of people together because there are no language, economic or social barriers- instead it provides its own language of rhythm and melody to enable its players and users to communicate with each other non-verbally. We are all in this world together.

LaborFest 2024

Let’s celebrate the 7th anniversary of LaborFest on August 31, 2024 at Douglas Park in Manistee, MI.! LaborFest 2024 continues the traditions of honoring the region’s rich industrial history and the laborers who supported the salt, lumber and sand industries.  In addition, the festival provides high-quality music to Manistee and the surrounding areas. All proceeds benefit our current project, a state-of-the-art iconic amphitheater built right on the shores of Lake Michigan.  This year’s headliner, MY SON THE HURRICANE
