2019 Stango Park Summer Concert Series featuring The Gibbonses ~ FREE
TONIGHT'S CONCERT HAS BEEN MOVED TO CAPE HENLOPEN HIGH SCHOOL BECAUSE OF TREES DOWN FROM YESTERDAY's STORM
The City of Lewes is excited to present twelve great bands for the summer concert series in Stango Park for 2019. Every Tuesday evening from June 11 to August 27, there will be a free concert starting at 7:00 p.m. on the open air stage in Stango Park next to the Lewes library.
Standing apart from the typical ‘acoustic duo’, The Gibbonses have developed a unique and engaging stage show that has to be experienced from the audience to truly be appreciated. Influenced by the likes of Susan Tedeschi and Grace Potter, the soulful power of Jackie’s voice commands the complete attention of all who hear it. Her eye catching percussion set up which consists of a kick drum, floor tom, tambourine, and a shaker duct tapped to a drumstick, combine with Brandon’s solid vocal harmonies, creative guitar playing and tasteful use of effects, allowing the pair to deliver an unexpected sound that rivals the fullness of a much larger band. Over the past few years they’ve had the opportunity to perform with such artists as The Black Lillies, Bob Schneider, Gary Morris, Shane Smith & the Saints, Blue Water Highway, William Michael Morgan, The Old 97’s, Flatland Cavalry, William Clark Green, as well as many other well known Texas musicians.
In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to the Cape Henlopen High School auditorium.
The 2019 summer concert series lineup is sponsored by the City of Lewes, WSFS Bank, and by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware art events on www.DelawareScene.com.
