WORTHINGTON - Worthington’s annual Windsurfing Regatta and Unvarnished Music Festival will kick off its 20th year by featuring two Minnesota bands during its opening night Friday.

Taking the stage at 6 p.m. is County Line Drive, a country group from Rochester. The five-person band was established in 2011 and has been making a splash in Midwest country music ever since.

County Line Drive write their own music and perform high-energy live shows. They have previously performed with Grand Ole Opry cast member Craig Morgan, but also enjoy rocking smaller stages in local areas.

Regatta-goers who love County Line Drive can catch the group in southwest Minnesota again this summer when it plays July 19 during Adrian’s Christmas in July celebration.

Friday’s live music doesn’t end there. At 8:30 p.m., catch Twin Cities cover band Good for Gary, a seven-member group that focuses on Top 40 hits and notes “there’s no hip-hop, pop or dance song they can’t cover.”

Good for Gary emphasizes playing and singing every note live, and will never use backing tracks or loops in the group’s shows.

Not only is each Good for Gary musician accomplished at their instrument, but they’ve been performing almost every weekend for the last six years - meaning that they know how to put on a show.

Regatta newbies and veterans alike will not want to miss these bands.
