Bronze Radio Return headlines 13th Annual Celebrate Mansfield Festival


August 18, 2016 - The Mansfield Downtown Partnership is pleased to announce the headliner for the 13th Annual Celebrate Mansfield Festival: Bronze Radio Return!

Since 2008, the Hartford, CT six-piece has independently sold over 100,000 singles, racked up more than 26 million streams on Spotify, and, with songs such as “Further On” and “Shake, Shake, Shake,” they have impressively notched nearly one hundred high-profile placements ranging from the 2014 film St. Vincent, to commercials for Nissan and Starbucks, to numerous television shows. Along the way, their hyper-charged and hypnotic stage presence has turned bystanders into believers at festivals including Firefly, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza.

Armed with a sound that’s one part indie dance party and another part roots rock laced with a pop sensibility, the music of Bronze Radio Return is begging to be blared with the windows rolled down. It’s nearly impossible not to fall in love with the rousing, cinematic soundscape on their most recent album, Light Me Up. Once again, the band has turned up with songs that draw you in and give you that undeniable urge to dance and sing along. In many ways, that spirit stands reflected in the moniker Bronze Radio Return.

Bronze Radio Return will perform at 2:30 PM on the stage of the Jeffrey P. Ossen Family Foundation Pavilion.

Opening for Bronze Radio Return at 1:00 PM will be Air Traffic Controller. Serving in the US Navy as an air traffic controller, singer/songwriter Dave Munro sent home demos written during deployment. Band-mate and singer/songwriter Casey Sullivan met Dave soon thereafter, and the two forged a collaborative bond that has become the vocal sound of ATC.

With an eclectic song catalog and category-defying organic/electronic sound, people are taking notice of Air Traffic Controller. They were 2015 Billboard Hot 100 Fest performers with The Weeknd and Justin Bieber, placed on the NPR Hot 100 List for SXSW, named Guardian UK Band of the Day, won Best Indie Alternative Song for "You Know Me" in the Independent Music Awards, and have over 15 million Spotify plays. Air Traffic Controller is from Boston and features: Dave Munro, Casey Sullivan, Steve Scott, Adam Salameh, and Adrian Aiello.
