The Upton Men’s Club is proud to bring you Country Fest Upton. This event is a charity fundraiser to raise money for various local public service organizations and UMC sponsored events within the Upton Community. All proceeds raised by this event will go back to the community of Upton to provide above and beyond support for things such as Veterans, Schools, Food Pantry, Seniors, etc.
It is our goal to provide fun and safe entertainment to all at a reasonable price.

Carolyn Kruse of Country 102.5 writes, “Twenty-one year old Tim Buono has been playing guitar and singing since he was about 9 years old. He describes his sound as a mix of Charlie Worsham and Eric Church. This past summer he went to Nashville to meet with record label executives and record a few songs. He’s headed back in the Spring of 2017 to play a songwriter’s round, with that same label he met with! Buono’s life changed in the summer of 2015 at the Country 102.5 Country Music Festival starring Dierks Bentley.” (read more at http://thenew1025.com/2016/10/catch-week-tim-buono/)

Thirty 6 Red
Thirty 6 Red is the band that does it all. From the beginnings as an all Original band in the early 90’s to today’s high energy Cover Band, the band knows how to make sure everyone at our shows has a memorable experience. The lineup has been refined many times to present the strongest group of musicians and vocalists that each share in the same philosophy. That philosophy is simple. Play great songs and make sure everyone is smiling from start to finish. Whether you want to sing, dance, shake your butt or just tap your beer bottle, Thirty 6 Red will have you moving. Started in 1990, Jim Politano and Paul Santry collaborated on a Studio session with a mutual friend and and decided that the chemistry was too good to leave in a recording studio.
