The Second Annual Music In The Park took place September 20, 2015 in Meadow Park.
Sunday was quite a warm day for this event, making for a smaller than anticipated crowd. This was too bad because the performers and the performances were really enjoyable. The music was very much Americana, with many of the songs written by the artists reflecting on their past and how events shaped their lives.
Our own Tokyo Rosenthal was the Master of Ceremonies. The first act, Ace & T-Bone led off with “Ain’t Misbehavin” a song composed by Fats Waller. Up next were the talented String Beings.
Unfortunately, the 3:00 PM performer, Jarod Place, had to cancel, but in true musician kinship, Wyatt Easterling stepped in to take his place. Tokyo joined him for some of the songs. Wyatt threw Tokyo a chord or a key and he could fit right in. Wyatt is a singer/songwriter and his music sends some strong messages about events he has witnessed. Rounding out the afternoon’s program were The Sap Boilers, a bluegrass group with Park resident Dan Mahoney.
Captain Poncho’s Tacos food truck was on hand with cold drinks, tacos and other treats.
