The Central Park Sessions - 2016 -- Sept. 8th

Postby madmax » Thu Jan 28, 2016 7:18 pm

The last Central Park Session will be on Thursday,September 8th. The Portlander Session will be an enjoyable evening as we close out summer with an eclectic group of bands that can make great music but also entertain with the best. The theme on this night is the northwestern city of Portland known for its quirkiness. The Portland cello Project will take the stage with four cellos and a drum kit and cover Radiohead or Brittney Spears with a classical piece thrown in. Our friends March Fourth Marching Band has changed names since their last show on our stage and now are MarchFourth! but still lead the league in non-stop fun with all 21 performers pitching in at a frantic pace on and off the stage,

Better Yeti used to be The Mustache and they will premier their new look and sound on this evening. All to support the great work done state wide by The River Alliance of Wisconsin. Of course there will be great food and beer and wine and mead at this free event. Should be fun.

Please buy a raffle ticket, t-shirt or look for a donation bucket to help defray the deficit caused by a string of extremely hot and rainy Sessions' Thursdays.

Thursday, September 8th -- The Portlander Session -- Back to School Special
5:00- 6:00 pm-- Better Yeti (formerly The Mustache)
6:30- 7:45pm-- The Portland Cello Project
8:15-- The Great Session Raffle Drawing-- Front of Stage
8:30- 10pm --- MarchFourth (Marching Band)
