2016


Sunday July 31 - Music on the Lawn
Pickin’ By The Bay!
Time: 4 PM to 7 PM Admission: Members -
A two-part music celebration. (Raindate is August 7th.)

On July 31st from 4-7 p.m. we are introducing “Pickin’ By The Bay!”, featuring Mixed Business.

This will be a two-part musical experience: First, “Calling all Musicians, bring your acoustic instruments!” This interactive jam session will be led by Mixed Business — Mark O’Dell on guitar, mandolin percussion, and vocals; Joey Mitchell on upright and electric bass and kick drum and Southern High School’s orchestra director Brian Forte on vocals, guitar and banjo. Chairs will be provided for all the players. For the rest of us; just kick back and enjoy the raucous joy.

Then we’ll move on to a live performance by Mixed Business. You’ll hear folk and bluegrass “mixed with” rock and blues and combinations of vintage & modern instruments. Skilled at a myriad of instruments, Mixed Business will energetically play it, stomp on it, shake it or hit it if you can get a good sound out of it. There will also be an abundance of tasty food and drinks for “kids of all ages” from our friends at Happy Harbor Restaurant.

(Please no outside food or beverages, except water.) And parking is easy with free shuttle service by Lighthouse Limousines. Come on down to our waterfront . . . and bring your lawn chairs and blankets!
