Live music returns to Lapeer, Uncle Kracker to perform at Lapeer Days


After a one-year hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions, Lapeer’s annual ‘Lapeer Days’ festival is back this year, with local music straight out of Motor City.

Michigan-born Uncle Kracker (who just celebrated his 47th birthday on Sunday) is set to play Michigan’s largest free festival which is scheduled this year from August 20 to 22 in downtown Lapeer.

The ‘Follow Me’ singer is scheduled to perform on the main stage on Saturday, August 22, starting at around 10:30 p.m.

Kracker, who was born Matthew Shafer at Mt. Clemons, Michigan, released five albums. His latest single, ‘Floatin’ (clip below) was released in 2018. Although it has not been featured on the Billboard US Singles or Hot Country Songs charts, it has been broadcast widely on country radio.

Expect a mix of well-known songs like Follow Me, Drift Away, Smile, and Good to Be Me (a personal favorite) with new music. Kracker tells the Lapeer County Press that he plans to have a lot of fun with the audience by bringing his unique blend of country and rock to Lapeer.

“It’s very interactive,” he says. “It’s supposed to be a party, and I want everyone to be involved. Every time we go on stage, I want people to walk away smiling.

Uncle Kracker is also scheduled to perform at the Flint’s Machine Shop concert show on Saturday, October 9. Tickets for this show are on sale now.
