Summer Concert Series at Stango Park
Bring your lawn chair or beach blanket.
One last concert for the 2020 Lewes Summer Concert Series will be tonight, Tuesday August 18th with Vinyl Shockley. Vinyl Shockley is a six-piece band that plays original music inspired by the rhythm and blues of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s that came out of Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and New Orleans. Ed Shockley was headed in that direction out of the mid-80’s, even before the genre had the name ‘Americana’. As a singer, Shockley has been compared to K’eb Mo and Van Morrison. Because he’s a singing drummer, he also gets compared to Levon Helm. “Van and Levon are two of my heroes, so be careful how you talk about them” Shockley replied. Joining Ed on guitar and as co-writer is Kevin Walsh.
We hope to see you for the last concert of the 2020 season at Stango Park, 101 Adams Ave, Lewes from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Bring your chairs, blankets and snacks and enjoy the music under the trees.
