The much awaited and ever popular Summer Music Series at Long’s Park begins this evening and Mingo Fishtrap will start off the season at 7:30 p.m. Based out of Austin, Texas, the band is a self described “soul, funk, horn fueled Motown pop” band.
Grab a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy this free concert. There will be food vendors there although attendees may certainly bring in their own picnic dinners. Pets – on leashes – are allowed. Do remember to clean up after your dog though.
On Time, the group’s latest album, will be released Tuesday. The band includes Roger Blevins, Jr. on vocals and guitar; Dane Farnsworth on the organ and keyboard; Chip Vayenas on drums and vocals, Mikel Urdy on percussion; Roger Blevins, Sr. on bass; Steve Butts on trumpet; Dan Bechdolt on saxophone; and Zoi Waterhouse on trombone.
