MOUNT MORRIS – The Mount Morris Jamboree is pleased to announce the debut performance of New York City Rockabilly Artists, Kyle Lacy and the Harlem River Noise on Aug. 18, with their free two hour concert starting at 7 p.m.
Kyle Lacy and his band conjures up a potion taking you home to the roots of 1950's rock 'n' roll while creating something fresh and bluesy- think Buddy Holly meets Gary Clark Jr.
Armed with an elegantly raucous voice, a 50's grit guitar style and a keen knack for "in the moment" lyrical honesty, Kyle uses his hepcat showmanship to keep his audience grooving down to the last beat. The band features Kyle Lacy on vocals and guitar, Cody Gibson playing upright bass, Boyce Griffith on tenor sax and Jesse Chevan on drums.
Their wild rockabilly show is packed with foot stomping rockabilly, blues, and originals that get a crowd on its feet, dancing, and interacting with us. This high-energy show will make the folks want to stick around and keep dancing.
Concessions for the evening will be provided by Ralfie's BBQ, who will be serving their signature pork kabobs and pulled pork and ribeye steak sandwiches and drinks, starting at 6 p.m. All profits will be donated to Serenity Hospice and Home.
Come to town early and have a look at all the good locally grown produce and other foods and crafts available at the Mount Morris Community Farmers Market held in the bank parking lot at the corner of Wesley Ave. and Rt. 64 from 4-7 p.m., every Friday through October. The Encore! Art Gallery will be open in Old Sandstone, just adjacent to the shell, that evening from 6:30-9:30 as well, this week featuring the Watt Global Media 100 year Anniversary Art Show. The Campus will be extra festive that evening as the of National Strawsculpting Competition continues, which will have many new sculptures on display all around the Campus until Aug. 31. Our rain location for the concert and concessions is the Mount Morris Moose Lodge, at 101 Moose Dr. just off of E. Hitt St. at the same times.
