A Rhythmic River Flows Through a Township

The Stroud Township in PA presented Riverside Rhythm in the Jay Albertson Park (named after retired Township Supervisor Jay Albertson) on Sunday July 17th as part of their Summer Concert Series. A large crowd gathered to enjoy the sounds from classic Big Band era prevalent from the 1920's through the 1940's. The performance was a wonderful way to enjoy a lazy summer early evening as the band’s gentle instrumentals and vocals provided by Jamie Begley led their listeners to a swaying enjoyment in a very relaxed fashion. Riverside Rhythm’s Musical Director Gregory Graham enhanced the performance through his insights to the music and the history associated with each piece and its composer.

Thanks for the note. We enjoy playing for our "hometown" audience, and saw many familiar faces in the crowd.
