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.
