A fter a few weeks of music, rain got in the way once again of the summer concert series last Thursday.
But this week’s two-show line up will make up for last Thursday’s loss. Tonight, crowd-packing favorite the Big Smoothies will play in the park for all to enjoy.
This highly interactive group plays music to please any ear, from the Beatles to Frank Sinatra. Granville residents have even been known to join in the show in previous years.
Adding to the festive feel on Thursday night will be a chicken barbeque put on by the Granville Masons from 4 to 6:30 p.m. The menu will include half a chicken, a baked potato, homemade baked beans, coleslaw, a dinner roll and dessert, all for $9.
Keeping up the momentum the following night will be the Starline Rhythm Boys, who were slated to kick off the concert series in June but got pushed back to this Friday, Aug. 2. This Vermont-based trio will play what they describe as a rockabilly, country-style show.
Last week Granville was supposed to host Freedom Hawk, a local group offering a combination of rock styles and country. Rain kept the band away, but village officials said they’re trying to reschedule the musicians for Thursday, Aug. 29.
All of the concerts, which take place in Veterans Park from 7 to 9 p.m., are free and open to the public. Check for weather cancelations on the sign in front of the park or on the Sentinel’s Facebook page.
