Party like you're in the Band: June 27th at Reynolds Park

I am really excited about the Party in the Park on June 27th at Reynolds Park. One look at the schedule of activities and you'll understand why. And it has been a beautiful thing to be a part of planning. If you are going to go to meetings in your free time, these are the kind of people you want to make to-do lists with. 

A neighborhood gathering like this is more than a portapotty and some park permits. It is an expression of the place and the people who live in it. I've been touched by how readily people have said YES to sharing their unique talents to make this event happen. 

On a level, perhaps, music makes it a party. But my own experience with these things is limited to planning my wedding many years back. I danced so much I ripped my dress, but even then, it was friends who literally hooked me up (Still grateful for that sound cable Andrew Yonda! If anyone is looking for photographers, he and his wife are the best on East Dayton St.)

At the Party in the Park, we will enjoy the abundance of talent located right here in the I'm in a band neighborhood(map by Lia Spaulding and for sale at Anthology). 

The Music Line-up:

  • Starting at 1:30, one of our talented neighbors, Lisa Marine, will perform with her Tiny Band. The Tiny Band plays mostly original songs (and a few fun covers) on tiny instruments, such as a tiny piano, mandobird, ukuleles, and little bitty drums. The bag player is not to be missed!
  • At 3PM, Kelly Maxwell, one of the gorgeous members of the funky V05 band, will be performing with her own The Special TreatsIt's a triple scoop of fun with Kelly, Meghan and Sarah's harmonious interpretations of kid-friendly tunes.  Blow some bubbles, shake an egg and frolic in the sunshine with The Special Treats!   
  • Lastly, starting at 4PM, the communal vibrations of a drum circle will end the party on the right beat. Anyone is welcome to bring a drum and join in.

Last year, as part of Make Music Madison, an a cappella group drew a crowd on the relaxed Saturday morning. (This year, Make Music Madison is Saturday, June 21st: all day and everywhere!)
