On the city square, following the Sham Battle, will be the annual Music in the Park. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets, grab something to eat from the Dutch Oven dinner or from one of the vendors (or bring your own picnic), and prepare for an afternoon of outstanding music. As usual, this is a free event.
This years concert kicks off around 11:30 am and begins with Wellsville’s own Katie Riggs. Raised in our community Katie now lives in Nashville. We are delighted to welcome Katie home and to hear her absolutely outstanding voice again.
Following Katie, will be The Fender Benders. The Cache Valley based band has years of playing classic rock-and-roll from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. As they say on their website:
“We are five versatile musicians, each of whom has been performing in rock bands for 20-40 years (for a total of more than 150 years individual performing experience). We have been together for eight years… with the same band members! Our repertoire includes songs everybody knows: true “classics” from the golden age of rock: the late 60s, the 70s, and the early 80s. Our sound is genuine and true to the genre, with full instrumentation on vintage instruments (including all-tube guitar and keyboard amps), rich lead vocals, and tight harmonies”.
“Although we use our musicianship to make each song “our own”, the style and feel are always true to the original recording. (In fact, we sometimes sound more “true” to the record than the original band does when they perform in concert!) Our extensive playlist (over 6 hours of music without repeats!) allows us to tailor our performance for a wide variety of venues.”
As Dewy Bunnell of the classic bank America said of the Fender Benders “This isn’t OLDIES. This is CLASSIC ROCK”.
Come join with your friends and neighbors for an enjoyable afternoon of music.
From Leesa Cooper:
Just wanted to let those of you on the south end of the city who have been without culinary water that we are still having problems. A water main line on 200 West failed, and we have not been able to completely fix it. Our goal is to provide at least a trickle of water to everyone throughout the night, but be prepared for very low pressure and a lot of air in your water lines. The water is clean and drinkable.
Tomorrow we will have to turn the water to the south end completely off again, so please fill some containers tonight to get you through the day tomorrow. So sorry for the inconvenience, we are doing our very best to get the broken line fixed!!
The Founders’ Day Antique Tractor Pull will be located at the empty Lot west of the Tennis Courts. The Pulls will start at 1:00p.m. Please enter from the center street side. This information is different that what came out with the water bill.
It’s amazing to watch what these old tractors (some are several decades old) can pull. If you haven’t seen an antique tractor pull before it’s well worth your time. Bring a lawn chair – you might stay around for a while.
Thanks to the Cache Valley Antique Machinery Association for putting this event together.
