MONTPELIER "4th on the 3rd"
Fri, Jul 3rd 7:00pm
JULIO'S PARKING LOT
54 State St, Montpelier, VT 05602
Price: $ No Cover
Mostpeculiar Montpelier celebrates their "4th" on the "3rd" (well, of course, they do!)and it's a big celebration with parade, other events, inc. music, etc. You can check all that out on the City of Montpelier website. In any event, we've worked for owner John Mayfield at his Julio's Cantina right there on State St in the Capital City for several years now. John sets up a stage down in the Heney Parking Lot (where the Montpelier Farmers' Market is located) next to his business an' also has a tent an' his outside bar. Drinks an' food are served as we dish out our honky-tonk an' rockabilly sounds from the stage. Looks like great weather this year...unfortunately it was a bust last year an' none of it got off the ground due to predicted heavy T-storms. So this should be different...an' great. We start up around 7 / 7:15 right after the end of the big parade passes an' play about a 45 minute set. We go back on about 8:20 for an hour or until the fireworks start, then take another break durin' that an' then finish up with a short courtesy set from about 10 / 10:15 till 10:30/10:45. So we'll be there on the 3rd for the 4th an' maybe even have a 5th! CELEBRATE the "4th" WITH THE STARLINE RHYTHM BOYS AT JULIO's!

MUSIC in the PARK
Tue, Jul 14th 6:30pm
Islands Center Tent, Knight Point State Park
US RT 2 on left north of drawbridge between Grand Isle & No. Her, No.Hero, VT 05474
Price: $ FREE except park admission
This will be our 7th consecutive year of performin' for ICAR (Islands Center for Arts & Rec) associated with the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce for their "Music in the [Knight Point] Park" series. They run a great organization up there (No. Hero) an' our friend, Ruth Wallman, who is the Director, is one of the best promoters around. We used ta work in the ol' pavilion building on the hill at the park, with folks seated outside on lawn chairs, blankets..but weather was always an issue. A couple of years ago they bought a big ol' entertainment tent, with stage an' power, so now EVERYONE is under it an' it makes a great venue. Only potential for cancellation would be a severe electrical storm or very high winds, but rain don't bother at all. You should bring a lawn chair, though, as the tent "floor" is all open. The tent is up on the other hill past the Knight Point State Park parking lot - ya can't miss it! We always draw a big crowd for this one an' really enjoy playin' for the folks. They have some type of food truck on-site, but you can bring yer own supper items. The show is 6:30 till 8pm. Also, the show is free, but ya do have ta pay a $5 admission fee for adults (kids under 12 free) to get into the park. Look for the Knight Point State Park sign on yer left after you cross the drawbridge goin' north on US Rt 2 between Grand Isle an' No. Hero. Anyway, we'll see ya there an' lookin' forward to another big show!
