July 28, 2012

Another great Tuesday evening concert at Goodwill Park under clear skies...

The Tall Boys, led by Jonathan Loya filled the park with a variety of rock. jazz and funk.

The Holliston Arts Council presented the fifth of seven summer concerts at Goodwill Park on Tuesday, July 24th. 

Kristen Alpert of the Holliston Arts Council introduced the band, led by Arts Council member Jonathan Loya.  This is a quartet of students from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell. They opened the program with a stirring rendition of We Will Rock You by Band Queen.

The Lions Club and the Holliston Newcomers Club were thanked for their generous support of the Tuesday Night Goodwill Park Concerts.

Jonathan Loya displayed his talents on the bass guitar, symbols and his signature saxophone.

Jared Ghioto from Dennis on the Cape, was the lead singer as well as a fantastic drummer.

Brian and Randy McGravey, twin brothers from Haverhill, expressed their talents on the keyboard, guitars and vocals. 

This talented foursome presented a variety of rock, jazz and funk to a receptive audience.

Dan and Melissa Haley enjoyed the evening with daughter Sylvie on the grounds of the park.

 

The Schnapp family, Sue holding  Sylvia Howell and Carl with Ella Howell. Ella and Sylvia from Colorado are visiting their grandparents. Their aunt Emily Kevork of Medway is holding her daughter Zara. 

And then Jack Olson joined the Schnapps and their family. All enjoyed the music of the evening.

Again this week, Kristen Alpert and Brian Loughlin patiently await someone to offer them ice cream.

It is worthwhile noting that the ice cream vendor shares a percentage of the sales at these Tuesday concerts with the Arts Council.

There are two more scheduled concerts, July 31 features Ben Rudnick and Friends, an evening of Family Music.

August 7 is a Teen Rock Band, Blackwell, a local Holliston band. 

Also on that night, the Holliston Police Department will be on hand to provided a community awareness program with activities and entertainment for kids of all ages.
