September 9, 2015 - The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce has announced the entertainment lineup of its new “FallFest” event being held October 16th and October 17th at Grossmont Center (5500 Grossmont Center Drive, in the Macy’s parking lot.)

The entertainment lineup will combine the best in music with “a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll.”

The rock and roll will begin this year’s entertainment series on Friday, October 16th at 7 p.m. by providing the beat tapping, rock music of the CarTune Dogs. This local group has the distinction of playing for the past 15 years in various venues, such as: Dick’s Last Resort Bali Hai and Hard Rock Cafe. We have also been happy to have them on the Chamber’s big beer garden stage at the annual Oktoberfest in the past 5 years. Several of the band members tour and record with Creedle, Rust, The Vengers and Left For Dead. You may hear this dynamic group in our “FallFest” beer garden at Grossmont Center on Friday, October 16th from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

“The Chamber is extremely pleased to announce that Multi-Award Winning Singer/Songwriter Brent Payne has been secured as the performer for Saturday, October 17th,” says Chamber president Mary England. Brent Payne and his band will be performing on stage between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.  Payne won Best Country Song of the Year at the 2012 Hollywood Music Awards for his hit single, Now & Forever. He is nominated this year for Best Country Song of the Year for Midnight Prayer. Winners will announced at a ceremony in November.

“Brent’s performances are electrifying, high energy and always include crowd interaction. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Brent Payne and his band performing on our stage, Saturday, October 17th in Grossmont Center,” says England, who added that she is pleased to work with the Cushman family, owners of Grossmont Center.
