The annual Saturday in the Park at Grandview Park in Sioux City, Iowa delivered on the promise of a hot day and cool music as the Avett Brothers, Bonnie Raitt and Ziggy Marley headlined.

Many people wondered out loud and on social media why the 64-year old legend wasn’t THE headliner, but Raitt fans of all ages turned out in huge numbers to see her run through a lifetime of music from her early blues days recording with her friends (and former boyfriend) in Little Feat back in the early 1970s through her last release, 2012′s Slipstream.

Sioux City band Mat D. and the Profane Saints played early in the afternoon and had a lot of people talking about how proud they were to see a local band grace the bog stage at the festival. The Profane Saints will headline the second stage at Sioux Falls JazzFest on July 18.

Saturday in the Park has been gaining a reputation of having a good time in the middle of a hot afternoon over the past several years when they have booked artists like Michael Franti & Spearhead and Sublime with Rome. This year continued that trend with an all-time favorite Ziggy Marley.

Add in Nashville band The Wild Feathers who put on a great show to headliners the Avett Brothers and their brand of Americana plus alternative metal band Helmet headlining the second stage, Saturday in the Park continues to be a jewel in this region for summer music festivals.
