More music, more music, more music!

9 Jul

A crowd enjoys one of last summer’s concerts.

I write with some regularity about all the music options we have here in Webster during the summer months, in particular the village band performances on Thursdays and Gazebo concerts on Fridays.  But so far I have been totally ignoring another fine concert series which conveniently gives us somewhere to park our quad chairs on Wednesday.

The Main Street East band got the kids into the act.

That would be the Community Concert Series at the United Church of Christ on Klem Road. The concerts themselves take place on the front porch of the church, and seating is on the lawn — or indoors if it rains. And what’s really neat about these concerts is that proceeds from each concert benefit a different Webster non-profit organization.  There’s no charge, but a free will offering is accepted and concessions are sold, including soda, hot dogs, hamburgers, pulled pork and a weekly “special.” Last year the church raised $5400 from the concerts in free will offerings.

The concerts start up tomorrow, Wednesday July 11 and continue every Wednesday through the middle of August.  Here’s the schedule: (Click here  for more information about the bands.)

The Dady Brothers will return on August 8.

July 11: Gateswingers Big Band to to benefit Webster Comfort Care Home
July 18: Main Street East to benefit Webster Health & Education Network
July 25: Half Ton Horns to benefit Webster Friends of Trails
August 1: Ruby Shooz to benefit Webster Community Chest Food Cupboard
August 8: The Dady Brothers to benefit Heritage Christian Home Jennifer Lane
August 15: Nik Lite to benefit Webster Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary

Concessions open at 6 pm and the concerts begin at 6:30. The United Church of Christ is located at 570 Klem Road.

Thank you to Susan Mitchell for letting me know about these concerts. They sound like a lot of fun, for a good cause.
