Now, let the music begin
The San Diego alternative rock band Switchfoot kicked off Sonshine Festival on Wednesday with a free show. A crowd packed in around the main stage to see the nationally known band.
Among them were Kayla Aronson, Addie Dougherty and Allsion Peltier, who traveled from Stillwater for the concert.
Asked if the band was an appropriate opener for the festival, Aronson said "oh yeah, of course."
"It has more meaning than your standard music," she said.
"They appeal to a wider audience beyond just the Christian music scene."
Sonshine officially kicks off today, with concerts beginning at 10 a.m., and ending with headlining-act Skillet.
