Dear Fans/ Friends / Clients
Come see Barbone Street at the Freedom Celebration in Garrett Tubman Park on
the Cristina River in Wilmington next Wednesday, July 4th. It's easy to get
to, right behind the Amtrack Station downtown.
We are on the main stage with a concert of America's Music, Dixieland Jazz
from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM. Several acts precede us and several follow
including a concert by renowned concert pianist Leon Bates.
The park events are FREE, start at 4 PM and include fun for the entire
family. From historical characters like Betsy Ross & Ben Franklin, to
children's rides and games, live music including Barbone Street, the 3rd
annual All-American Baby Contest, An artificial ice skating rink (rent
skates for $2), a cruise car show in the parking lot by the baseball field
(go Blue Rocks) and much, much more.
The Fireworks Finale starts at 9:30 or so and rivals the best around. You
can watch them from the park, or from the decks of the many wonderful
restaurants that line the riverfront. About 100 yards from the firing area.
Oh yes, almost forgot, we six old boys will have 12 year old Jazz Violinist
Jonathan Russell with us. He is sensational and this is his 3rd Riverfront
event as part of our band. He wowed them there, at concerts for the
Pennsylvania and Tri State Jazz Societies, at The Laurels International
Equestrian event. at the Turks Head Music Festival and several others in
West Chester over the past 4 years.
Come on by for a great evening in celebration of Freedom on America's Day.
And get there early as the crowd is expected to easily top 25,000. You can
park close by in the Amtrack parking garage for a minimal fee.
