Just how the gods of Norse mythology would battle/feast for eternity at Valhalla we to shall meet to battle/feast at the one and only Grandsons. Please join us for a night of pain, tears, food, justice, and of of course GLORY!!!!!”

Grandaire has delivered so many local shows and festivals within the last several years. One of their major annual events is their festival, SADFEST, a music festival to raise awareness for suicide, depression, addiction, and other mental illnesses.
Another festival they started more recently is Grandaire’s ELECTRIC HALLOWEEN, a festival to host all genres of music during Halloween. You can purchase a weekend or day pass to put on your masks and enjoy all kinds of music while camping out in the Pine Barrens.
Again, GRAND SMASH will be held at “Grandsons” on Friday, June 3 at 6pm, so come out with some friends to enjoy some friendly, yet very serious competition, to support Grandaire Booking and contribute to costs of all their hard work and dedication in providing to our music scene’s community.
