Concerts in the Park

One of my favorite things in the summer is having the chance to hear free concerts in the park. Yukon city park hosts a summer series, as does Hafer Park in Edmond.

Tonight The Bonham Revue played in Edmond. These guys are friends of mine -- the bass player is engaged to one of my best friends (she of the feet in the previous post) and they are fast closing in on wedding plans. It's a very exciting time!

The guys in The Bonham Revue, a bluegrass group, are also members of a country band called City Moon. Check the schedule of both bands at City Moon. After tonight's concert they boarded the bus and headed for a gig in Kansas. City Moon will be playing in Hafer Park on August 10. Catch them if you get a chance! I promise you an evening of music you will enjoy.
They are also at Langston's in Stockyards City on August 12. Grab a steak at Cattleman's while you're down there.

It's even more fun when you know the people in the band.

This reminded me of an outdoor summer concert of some local bands that I went to a long time ago when we lived in Missouri. Somewhere I have photos of the band playing and people dancing.

Is he getting the whole girl or just the feet? ;)

This is the second time in the space of an hour I've run across bluegrass. I just came back from taking Twix to the vet, and he was telling me that he's headed to northern Oregon for a bluegrass camp. Now wouldn't that be fun!

Oh yeah that would be a blast! Each fall the next small town north of the OKC area has the International Bluegrass Festival. It's well worth attending because of the caliber of performers who attend -- people like Vince Gill, EmmyLou Harris and other huge stars. So much fun -- this kind of music can appeal to people of all ages.

Frenzied, at first I thought Twix was the one heading north to Oregon! Now THAT would be fun!

Cute girl in white skirt!

Hey, the Woody Guthrie Festival is under way in Okemah!

You should hear her sing, E.R. She's got a powerhouse voice, both she and her sister. They are the daughters of the mandolin player. The guitar player is his cousin... it's all in the family. His son is in the background with a mandolin too, getting used to the idea of performing.
Try to catch them at Hafer Park if you can.
