2014 Fair Saint Louis Music Lineup

3274 days ago.


The 2014 Fair Saint Louis celebration will take place July 3-5 in Forest Park. The music lineup for the event was announced today.

The Fair was forced to move this year temporarily while the Arch grounds are undergoing a massive construction project. It is fitting, however, that the celebration will take place in Forest Park during the year that St. Louis celebrates its 250th birthday. The grounds hosted the World’s Fair back in 1904.

Here’s what was announced tonight along with a video from each artist.

Thursday July 3


Smash Band

The local cover band brings the party. It’s fronted by local radio legend Asher Benrubi, who goes by the name “Smash”. Tess Boyer, who can currently be seen on NBC’s The Voice, is a singer for the band. Benrubi is the father of actor Abraham Benrubi, who was on ER and Parker Lewis Can’t Lose.

The 64-year old Raitt was named the 50th greatest singer of all-time by Rolling Stone. The magazine also named her the 89th greatest guitarist of all-time.  She released her first album in 1971 and her 17th last year.

According to the website, there is still one national act not yet announced that will be playing on July 3.

The venue change for this year’s festivities will pose quite a few transportation questions. Fair organizers said they will have a “comprehensive transportation plan” published at the end of May.
