THE FREDDIE LONG BAND TO PLAY SUMMER
CONCERT SERIES PRESENTED BY DREES HOMES
Drees Homes and the Summer Concert Series Committee of Celebrate Frederick, Inc. are proud to announce that The Freddie Long Band, presented by KEY 103.1, will perform at the Summer Concert Series on Sunday, June 18th at the Baker Park Bandshell. The free performance will begin at 7 p.m.
Described as a “t-shirt and jeans blend of pop, rock, soul, and honesty,” the music of the Freddie Long Band has been turning the heads and ears of many—from folkies to metal-heads alike. The four – piece pop/rock group has been packing venues across the Mid – Atlantic. The Freddie Long Band plays fun and upbeat versions of well – known cover favorites while mixing in their own catchy and introspective original music. The chemistry, energy, and enthusiasm of the group often makes it hard to distinguish who is having the most fun, the fans or the band.
Plan to arrive early to enjoy a free Carillon performance in Baker Park beginning at 6 p.m. featuring Ann-Kirstine Christiansen, City Carillonneur from Loegumkloster, Denmark. Great snack foods and drinks will be available from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. during the Concert Series performance.
While the concerts are FREE to the public, the Summer Concert Series Committee encourages you to bring a canned food item in lieu of admission. Non-perishable items such as canned meats and vegetables, soups, peanut butter, cereal, rice and pastas are requested. All items collected benefit the Frederick City Community Action Agency Food Bank. Items will be collected at the new Information Booth donated by Drees Homes, located at the top of the bandshell steps in Baker Park. A special thank you to Drees Homes for this generous donation.
In the event of inclement weather, please tune to 99.9 WFRE, 103.1 WAFY or 106.9 WWEG for news of event cancellation. Due to the travel time and set-up by various artists and the sound production company, decisions regarding weather are made by 4:00 PM. Therefore, if the weather is inclement at this time, listen to the radio for confirmation of the evening’s performance being cancelled.
