Gainesville, VA (September 18, 2013) – Grab a blanket and some refreshments and park yourself in the park Saturdays this fall for Madison Crescent’s live music series!
Burgers kicks off the series on Sept. 28 with its bluesy renditions of old favorites from artists like the Grateful Dead and Hot Tuna. The following week, on Oct. 5, Just What I Needed plays popular songs from the 80s and 90s from artists like Billy Joel and, of course, The Cars. Eddie’s Mom, an acoustic band from Haymarket, closes out the series on Oct. 12 with cover songs from 60s through today, including one of their favorites, “What’s Up?” from 4 Non Blondes.
These talented musicians will play from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturdays in Crescent Park, behind the Harris Teeter at the Marketplace, at the intersection of Rte. 15 James Madison Hwy. and Rte. 29 Lee Hwy. All the shops will be open for anyone who wants to get takeout and have a picnic during the concerts. Those who don’t want to miss anything can wait ‘til the shows are over, then get dinner in one of the restaurants.
The shops and stores at Madison Crescent Marketplace are sponsoring the series, which is in its first year. Madison Crescent hopes this trial run of the program will lay the framework for expansion in the future, making way for a spring concert series with even more acts. Growing the program would enable promoters to bring more varied music genres to the area, creating a wide appeal for the shows as well as exposing concert-goers to new and different kinds of music.
