Concert in the park features top Seattle band
August 14, 2014
The free in-the-park concert Saturday evening will feature Billy Joe and The Dusty 45s, one of Seattle's favorite bands, named Best of Seattle three years in a row.
They cover a range of music from rock milestones such as the classic Dick Dale tune "Miserlou" to "The Lonely Bull" mixing in some twangy country, Dixieland and other genres. The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. on the Centennial Stage in Oats Park and promises to be a rockin' good time.
So plan on getting together with family and friends for an evening of great music under the stars. You can bring your own picnic supper and the Fallon Youth Club will have food and beverages for sale in the park beginning at 5 p.m. The Art Center's galleries and bar will be open after the show and there will be two new exhibitions on view.
The Classroom Gallery will feature "Dancing on Mystery's Horizon," large format panoramic photographs of Nevada landscapes by Stephen Chandler.
In the E.L. Wiegand Gallery you'll have a chance to view "Odd Encounters: Scenes from the New World," a selection of paintings and prints by Montana artist Robert Royhl.
