Can you believe it’s August already? Where has the summer gone? The TASTE of Montgomery County is nearly here–and we have some fantastic music offerings this year!
Our opening act is a local favorite. [email protected], featuring Stephanie Pool, Ken Lee, Wayne Lehr, and Chris “Gooch” Andel, will be performing from 1-3 p.m. With an act that includes hits from the 1950s to the present, they’ll be sure to get your toes tapping.
A popular local act makes a return for the 4:30-6:30 p.m. time slot. The Big Swing Band from Lafayette will bring us swing and big band music, featuring vocalist Gail Biss. Bring your best dancing shoes and polish up your Lindy Hop and Jitterbug, because you’ll want to get out and cut a rug!
The Big Swing Band performed at the 2009 TASTE of Montgomery County and were a real hit, so you won’t want to miss it.Playing from 8-10 p.m., our evening act is The Michael Kelsey Group out of Indianapolis. Michael Kelsey is a Lafayette native who has toured nationally with Blind Melon and Dishwalla and has opened for such acts as 38 Special and the Doobie Brothers. Though his main instrument is the guitar, Kelsey often reaches out to find improvisational instruments around him. As he experiments with sound and rhythm, his acoustic rock shows are always one of a kind. Check out his music and past performances at his website.
As hard as it is to believe, the TASTE is just over three weeks away. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy an afternoon and evening of great music and delicious food. Advance tickets are already on sale at the Carriage House, Milligan’s, and the Montgomery County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Advance tickets are $4 for adults and $2 for students. Stop in and pick them up this week!
