STANLEY PARK SUNDAY NIGHT CONCERT SERIES PRESENTS “UNION JACK” ON AUGUST 1ST
Featuring the look and sounds of the 1960’s British Invasion era, “UnionJack” takes you back to the days of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks, Hollies, Searchers and the many others that followed these great groups. A five-piece band, “UnionJack” was one of Western Mass’ original “tribute” bands formed in 1979. After years of performing with other bands, UJ’s members reformed in 2002. The current lineup features Gary Wilkinson, (guitar, vocals), Dave Lempke, (drums, vocals), Jim Brown (guitar, vocals), Peter Schindelman, (bass, vocals), and Greg Mitchell, (Keyboards). Wilkinson’s lead vocals on classic Beatles’ tunes have always been the band’s strength, along with some great material and more than a little bit of humor. “UnionJack” follows the history of the British Invasion from the early days of “Beatlemania” through the end of the decade. In addition to those mentioned above “UnionJack” also features tunes by the Animals, Yardbirds, Badfinger, Dave Clark 5, Gerry & the Pacemakers, and many others.
This performance begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Beveridge Pavilion and it is free of charge. Chairs will be provided and a food service will be available.
