|Description:||DISCOVER DOWNTOWN CUMBERLAND WELCOMES THE JOEY HARKUM SOLO TOUR
The Downtown Development Commission and Discover Downtown Cumberland will hold a special Labor Day weekend Friday Night Live this evening, Friday August 31st from 6 – 9 PM on The McCoury Family Stage located at 1 N. Liberty Street in Downtown Cumberland featuring one of the State of Maryland's favorite singer/ songwriters, Joey Harkum, to launch the Labor Day Weekend festivities.
Joey Harkum is a singer songwriter hailing from Pasadena, MD. For over a decade, Joey has performed all around the country as the lead singer of the band Pasadena. Joey has a unique way of connecting with his fans through deep, poignant lyrics which tell stories of happiness, love, loss and sadness. Joey is currently on his first solo venture and is touring the nation performing his own special brand of Americana, folk rock. He is a regular summertime favorite on Maryland’s Eastern Shore playing at many Ocean City, MD hotspots such as The 2nd Street Caribbean Pool Bar, Riptide Pool Bar, Ropewalk, Oceans 13, Harpoon Hanna’s and Pickles Pub Ocean City.
“I used to live and work in Ocean City and I have many friends who are now bar owners throughout the coastal town. After continuously hearing them talk about and post about this guy, Joey Harkum, I had to check him out and realized that he would be a great fit for our holiday weekend here in Cumberland” says Dave Love of the DDC “he will actually leave Cumberland and go directly back to Ocean City where he will be performing Saturday night September 1st at my buddy’s bar, Pickles Pub on 8th Street and Philadelphia Avenue for the Labor Day holiday” continues Love.
“Joey Harkum is a wonderfully talented musician and performer. He has a magnetic presence and exudes positive energy. A true crowd pleaser. Cumberland should be proud to host him – they are gonna love him.” says Justin Acita, owner and operator along with his wife Brittney, of Pickles Pub Ocean City.
Joey performed last weekend throughout New York City and will continue his first solo tour after Cumberland & Ocean City for dates throughout September in Arbutus, Lutherville and Baltimore in Maryland; Buffalo, New York; Pittsburgh, PA; Canton, OH; Englewood & Pueblo, CO; Boonville, IN; and Chicago, IL.

“After the success and response that we had for Red, White & Bluegrass for the Fourth of July; we really wanted to do something special for the Labor Day weekend” says Mikayla Dodge, the Executive Director of the DDC.
“We want the community to start their long holiday weekend by enjoying a refreshing evening under the stars in Downtown Cumberland while they kick off their work clothes, crack open their favorite beverage and relax at their favorite al fresco downtown Cumberland eatery with some of your their people. For those who can’t make it to the beach, we are bringing the beach to them” concluded Dodge.
