Back to the Bricks announces concert line-up

GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Flint is home of the biggest car show in Mid-Michigan and this year's Back to the Bricks event.

The Back to the Bricks committee made some big announcements Monday morning about their 10th annual concert.

"We are pleased to announce that Flash Cadillac is going to be performing with the Flint Symphony Orchestra on that evening," said Michael Kelley, organizer for Music in the Parks.

He said this is going to be a real treat for the eyes and ears.

"They've worked out the charts and arrangements, so the band isn't just playing a little string in the background, or the orchestra. It's a fully integrated show," Kelley said. 

The Back to the Bricks organizers said their festival has been growing year after year and that it has just outgrown downtown as a concert venue. So this year they're coming out to the former General Motors Weld Tool Center in Grand Blanc. Organizers said more room could mean more people and more classic cars.

"We can accommodate twice as many people out there as well as cars, so you know classic cars. So we're pretty excited about it. If we can get 5,000 collector cars out there and maybe 25,000 spectators," said Al Hatch, Back to the Bricks chairman.

He said it will be pure family fun. 

"It's free, there's no cost. Just put your folding lawn chair in the trunk of the car, come out. We don't want any backpacks and no alcohol and there's no smoking. So this is really, really a truly family oriented event," Hatch said.

The Flash Cadillac along with the Flint Symphony Orchestra are scheduled for Friday, Aug. 15.
