July 10- The Royal Noise (7-9pm)

The Royal Noise forges an ebullient, high energy fusion of sinewy funk, gritty jazz and psychedelic rock, reminiscent of funk fusion acts like Herbie Hancock, Lettuce and Galactic, while drawing influence from dance/jam driven sensibilities in the vein of Umphreys McGee and Phish. The quartet’s dynamic elasticity, musical mastery and their ability to blend the lines between composition and improvisation set them apart from their peers and keep avid listeners returning to shows.

Food Vendor: Whole Foods and Velvet Sky Bakery

 

July 17- August (7-9pm)

Since forming in the early ‘80’s as an acoustic vocal rock band, AUGUST has become one of the most energetic, enjoyable and long lasting rock and roll dance bands in the Philadelphia area. Spend one evening with AUGUST and just try not to dance along and sing along and smile the night away to your favorite songs of the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s.

July 24- The Karmic Repair Company (7-9pm)

July 31 – KidFest (5:30-9pm)

Featuring Trinidelphia, a local group that has grown to become Philadelphia’s preeminent Caribbean music ensemble. Fronted by multi-instrumentalist Chris Aschman (Steelpan, trumpet), the group’s mission is to combine the steel drum art form of Trinidad and Tobago with American Jazz and Funk, Jamaican Reggae and Ska, and other musical forms. This combination of styles results in some exciting performances that call upon the member’s unique chemistry and musical backgrounds, resulting in a sound that is festive and funky, yet intellectual and personal.

    The Montgomery County Concert Band will be celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2015. The band has performed at many parks in the county including, White’s Road, Souderton, Upper Moreland, and Montgomery Township. We have also performed at the National Conference of the Association of Concert Bands in Allentown, and at the annual In Service Conference of the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association twice. We would be very interested in performing at the Abington Arts Center next summer. Please visit our website and see and hear the band perform. Thank you, Chuck Neidhardt – Director
