Merrill City Band: This Concert Is So Clich? ?Take Two
Take two…the story of the Merrill City Band 2013 season so far. Tonight, the group will try once again to perform the “This Concert Is So Cliche.” Cross your fingers for great weather. Vince Conrad will be featured on drum set, along with vocal soloist Jennifer Aarrestad on “God Bless America” and “Over The Rainbow.” Other selections include “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is,” “Look For The Silver Lining,” “It’s A Small World,” “When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going,” and more.
The following week, Aug. 7, the band is partnering with the Merrill Police Department in celebration of Community Night Out. Free food, activities, entertainment, and fun will be available beginning at 5:30 p.m. Musical twosome “The Nameless,” Luke Fisher and Olaf Lund from Eau Claire, will entertain. The duo performs a collection of tunes from Bob Dylan, Neil Yong, Donovan, the Rolling Stones, Hank Williams and more. The powerful combination of guitar and violin/mandolin creates a haunting and lyrical experience for their audience that carries them through old favorites and originals alike. The city band will perform beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Free bus rides will be available from the Merrill-Go-Round to and from the park for the Aug. 7 event, sponsored by the Merrill Police Association. Call 715-536-7112 for rides.
As always, gift certificates from local businesses will be given out as part of the 50/50 raffle. Delicious popcorn and lemonade will be available from HAVEN. Come on down to the park with your lawn chairs, blankets, a picnic supper, and a smile.
Cancellations are broadcast on Merrill’s WJMT and Tomahawk’s WJJQ, as well as Facebook. A performance has been added to the end of the season on Aug. 14, so mark your calendars for the encore performance.
