VMF at the Drive-In

It was a new concert experience in your own car, at a custom Drive-In with a HUGE elevated stage, light show, multi-media entertainment, LED screens and great sound from your own stereo system via FM radio. The fabulous combination will ensure a good viewing experience for everyone all in a beautifully run, socially-distanced, audience-safe environment.
VMF was honored to partner with CBF Productions.

J2B2 is an all-star bluegrass supergroup featuring four legendary, award-winning musicians – John Jorgenson on acoustic guitar, mandolin and vocals; Herb Pedersen on banjo, acoustic guitar and vocals; Mark Fain on bass; and Patrick Sauber on acoustic guitar and vocals – delivering bluegrass like no one has ever heard it before.  Watch highlights here.
