Brownstone Real Estate Sponsors the Original Mount Gretna Cicada Music Festival

The dazzling selection of entertainment kicks off at 8:00 PM, beginning Monday, August 7, with the final performance on Tuesday, August 15. From the classic rock and roll of America’s golden age with Phil Dirt and the Dozers, to the Everly Brothers Experience, and Hotel California—the original Eagles Tribute Band hailing from Ontario, Canada—there is something for everyone.

Shawn Kush, the ultimate Elvis Presley Tribute Artist has performed all over the world, and been featured on David Letterman. Beatlemania Now, as seen on Broadway, offers a live on-stage tribute to the mood of the 60s and 70s, set against a backdrop of stunning images. Lights Out—taking the stage on Tuesday, August 8 (with Brownstone as a sponsor)— is the #1 Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons Show, offering a high-energy trip down memory lane with dancing, singing, and comedy.

We are extremely proud of the dedication and committment of our agent, Rhoda Long, to the festival. A Mount Gretna resident, she has been a committee member of the Cicada Music Festival for twelve years. The entire committee is comprised of hard-working volunteers, with excess proceeds returned to the community in the form of charitable donations.

August is known for the distinctive songs of cicadas. Males typically launch into loud serandes on hot summer afternoons in the hopes of attracting females. What better month for a festival named in their honor—and what better place than beautiful Mount Gretna to host such a fun-filled and entertaining event!
