Mighty Joe & The Gravamen, Modern Sounds in Rockabilly
July 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Wednesday July 24th, the series welcomes Mighty Joe & The Gravamen. Call it “Modern Sounds in Rockabilly”. Based out of Philadelphia, PA, Mighty Joe Castro and the Gravamen is the latest musical project from accomplished collage artist and musician Joe Castro (ex-The Situation, The Lift Up, Nero /OPF). Heavily influenced by the sound of rockabilly as well as ’50s rock-n-roll and doo-wop, the band takes that vintage rock and roll sound but updates it with a modern lyrical approach and a healthy dose of post-modern guitar effects. Consider it a house that resides at the cross roads where Sun Records and Creation Records meet. Mary Pat’s Provisions will offer dinner on July 24th.
In its 13th season, the Summer Concert Series returns to Anson B. Nixon Park in June. All concerts are FREE and run 8 consecutive Wednesdays June 19th thru August 7th.
Concerts are rain or shine events, and are only canceled in the event of severe weather. Shows start promptly at 7pm and run until 9pm with a brief intermission. Dinner is available for purchase from area restaurants at all performances, with desserts offered by La Michoacana Ice Cream and Sweet Magnolia Bakery.
