SANATOGA PA – Lower Pottsgrove’s popular and free summer concert series, one of the few that remain in Montgomery County, revs up again in just two weeks with the June 22 (2014; Sunday) perennial return of local musical favorite, the Bill Koss Combo. The series conducted by the Parks and Recreation Board kicks off at 6 p.m. at the band shell in Sanatoga Park off South Sanatoga Road.
Also scheduled to appear in township concerts during subsequent weeks at the park:
- June 29 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., the Barbone Street Jazz Band, an ultimate dance band with jazz and swing;
- July 20 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., The Mango Men, whose music spans rock, pop, country and almost everything else;
- July 23 (Wednesday) at 7 p.m., features a special return performance by the 78th U.S. Army Band and its many musical units, with popular and show tunes and tributes to service men and women and veterans;
- July 27 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., Blue Moon;
- Aug. 2 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., Makin’ Music Gilbertsville, a family show geared towards families with pre-school children for the first 40 minutes, then familiar favorites for the grown-ups; and
- Aug. 10 (Sunday) at 6 p.m., a series-closing performance by The Pottsgrove Community Band, known for its marches.
Several other municipalities within the county canceled concerts this year due to budget constraints or declining attendance.
