Willakenzie Park – 6/27 – Tuesday
Corwin Bolt and the Wingnuts
Corwin Bolt and the Wingnuts play Old-time, New-time, Rag-time, and Blue-time. Most of the time somewhere in between Country-blues and Country-gold. We have Corwin on the resomatic guitar, the upstanding Josh Britton on the upright bass, Jeremy Sher, fiddler extraordinaire, and Tim 'Slim' Long, Washboard Wizard.
Churchill Park – 7/11 – Tuesday
The Beat Crunchers are fresh, funky, and live. They get the booty shaking and keep it shaking with their mighty Brazilian percussion and exuberant horns. The Beat Crunchers take you on a breathless tour of the world's best dance parties, Afropop to Balkan to Cumbia. This is a band that turns everything it touches to a divine rug-cutting boogie-down, be it a childhood cartoon theme song or a funked-up Rachmaninov prelude. The Beat Crunchers resist boxes, and enable you lovely dancers to do the same.
Maurie Jacobs Park -7/18 - Tuesday
