Children can also play with jump ropes, hula hoops, bubbles and more
Opener: The Fabulous Mojos
A relatively new band on the local scene, they are a 6-piece that combines a funk blues band with jazz, rock and Dixieland featuring Neon John Hanzel (bass), Nelson Rudiak (sax), Rod VonPackal (trumpet), Karl VonPackal (guitar), Sam Talarico (drums), and MojoMama, Cathie Timian (vocals, mild percussion).
Intermission Act: Maggie Stephens
Maggie is an incoming senior at New Hartford High School who won the “Utica Teen Sing-Off” at Handshake City.
Headliner: The Claudettes
The Claudettes fuse Windy City piano blues with the full-throttle energy of rockabilly and punk, jazz-age echoes of burlesque and neo-vaudeville and the sultriness of '60s pop-soul to write a thrilling new chapter in American roots music. You can’t sum up their sound in one word – you need to experience it. Pianist Johnny Iguana, who toured for years with his cult-favorite rock band oh my god, is also in the Grammy-nominated groups Chicago Blues: A Living History and the Muddy Waters 100 Band. This four-piece band boasts three singers, with the silky lead vocals provided by new addition Berit Ulseth.
All concerts are:
• no alcohol
• no smoking at the park (people need to do so 25 feet away)
• family -friendly
• bring your chairs or blankets
Rain Date location will be MWPAI. Tune in to 96.1 The Eagle, Mondays at 2:20 for the Levitt Amp Utica Mondy Minute with Cindy McMullen as she'll give you official updates and weather information for the show.
See you in Kopernik Park!!!
