The Second Annual Mike'd Up Music Festival will be held in Mott on June 14. The festival is in memory of Michael Wehri, who died last year in a farming accident. Proceeds go toward a scholarship fund in his name. Performances begin at 2pm mst and include local groups as well as Copperlight (Bismarck), Bear North (Fargo), and Rachel Jane and the Midnight Lights (Minneapolis). The event will be headlined by The New Arizona, a Mott band that includes Noah Blickensderfer, Josiah and Olivia Billock, and Westley and Alex Johnson. The band hopes to have their new CD available to purchase at the show.
The show is largely organized by the members of The New Arizona - they were all close friends of Mike's.
