Albany -- Early Saturday morning preps were already underway for an all night rock concert. The second annual Real Rock-Fest is expected to draw thousands of fans.

"For the fans of the music that love everything about the station we bring this as like our gift to them. It's for them to see all these bands live and feel music that runs right through you," says Real Rock radio personality, Chunk.

The all night concert sponsored by Real Rock 97.3 will feature both local and national band and is expected to draw more than 3,000 fans. And among the performers will be 9 year-old Angelo Cedendio, drummer for Florida rockers, Encidius.

"I just like to go crazy," says Cedendio.

"We do play some places late at night but his parents are there so he has supervision," jokes the band's lead singer Keith Dinnen.

This is the second major concert to be held at the Parks at Chehaw this year but this will be the biggest. And music fans and park officials are hoping this is only the beginning.

"We never have anything come to Albany. It's a rare occasion and there's never really an opportunity for youth in the area to come together like this," says event goer Amanda Slack.

"It shows the community that we are diverse. It lets them know we definitely are a park, we are a zoo but we utilize the recreational area and the other amenities in the community to put on events like you see here today," says Peter Evans, Parks at Chehaw director of events.

The concert will go on to about midnight. Tickets are $20.
