The Zucchini Brothers, a band named after every child’s favorite vegetable (just kidding!), will be rocking the library Green on Wednesday, Aug. 8, at 6:30 p.m. Drop by at 6 p.m. for a free ice cream social courtesy of the Friends of the Library. This is the final concert in the 2018 Evenings on the Green series, and we’re going out with a bang!
The Zucchini Brothers – Jack on guitar, Steve on keyboards and Sam on drums – have been entertaining local audiences for years with their zany musical stir-fry of styles. In addition to producing their own radio show, the Zucchini Brothers make numerous television appearances, and their music is played on radio stations throughout the world. Their performances are sometimes silly but always high-energy and fun as they bridge the musical gap between kids and adults, appealing to people of all ages.
Bring a blanket or lawn chair, pick a spot on the Green, and get ready to listen to some great music! Concerts are always free and will move indoors if it rains.
