MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Strawberry Festival has already secured a diverse array of area talent for their lineup of musical entertainment this summer.

Rock-and-roll band "Jette and the Resonators" is set to kick things off on Friday, June 20, having already taken part in several previous years of the Strawberry Festival, in cooperation with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office to benefit "Pennies for Puppies & Ponies."

On Saturday, June 21, the Strawberry Festival has already secured bluegrass band "The Weavils," and Arlington's own singing cowboy, Jesse Taylor.

The Strawberry Festival's schedule of performers is set to be rounded out by Village Community Services' stylistically eclectic ensemble, "Voices of the Village," as well as Beatles tribute band "The Soundbeats."

"The Soundbeats are looking forward to their first Strawberry Festival," said Jim Smith, who serves as the agent for both "The Soundbeats" and "Jette and the Resonators." "The Beatles are one of the most popular bands of all time, so that music always goes over well with crowds. And when Jette and the Resonators book their performances for each year, they make sure to highlight the Strawberry Festival, because they absolutely enjoy being outdoors with all those people who are already having a great time. They love to come back, year after year."
