This show will have you on your feet and enjoying all the great songs of one of Michigan’s very own Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members. Come on out and enjoy a great night out with Katmandu!
Saturday, July 2 – The Invasion
The Invasion is Detroit’s premium British Invasion cover band. Bob, Ron, David and Donn were drawn together from a love of the music from the other side of the pond that came to us here in the 1960s. All 4 members of the band sing tight, well crafted harmonies. They have 4 true lead vocalists. Add to that expert instrumentation on era inspired gear, the best of the music of that magical decade and you have The Invasion’s formula for a good time.
This project has been a true joy for the boys who have had a shared love for this music but have never come together just for the idea of pursuing the music of the Beatles and those who followed. Add to that the fact that each of the guys have been playing professionally for years and are now having the time of their lives with this music, and I’m sure you’ll have a great time too!
Friday, July 8 – Taylor Tucky
Taylor Tucky features some of Detroit’s finest musicians and was formed to cover today’s country hits. Fronted by Nashville Recording artist Steve Nickells, the band offers driving grooves, great 3-part harmonies and diverse instruments like banjo and mandolin for a great full sound. They are excellent at replicating cover songs from modern country, classic country and southern rock favorites.
Friday, July 15 – The Dan Rafferty Band
The Dan Rafferty Band is young, hip, incredibly entertaining, polished, and completely in touch with everything out in today’s styles. They plan to JAM on every funk, Motown, disco, swing, rock and classic tune you could possible want to hear all night long on the shores of Lake Huron in Lexington!
Friday, July 22 – Captured Detroit – Journey Tribute
Captured Detroit is the ultimate Journey Tribute band that faithfully recaptures the thrill that generations of Journey fans remember. They recreate and “recapture” Journey’s greatest hits that have withstood the test of time after all these years. Captured Detroit features five top metro-Detroit area professional musicians who perform all parts live—no tracks—no sequencers—100% live!. They come together bringing the highest level of musicianship – paying careful attention to recreate the songs, sounds, energy, and rich harmonies that made Journey known as one of the best rock and roll bands of all time.
Friday, July 29 – Groove Council
The Groove Council held its first session in 2006 – but the band pulls together
musicians with assorted backgrounds from all around the Detroit area (and even
Canada!) to make up an impressive musical resume that spans decades. In just a
short time, the band earned a local reputation for delivering dance-inducing soul
music with an infectious groove.
When you put Kathleen’s powerful vocals over a cookin’ rhythm section and layer
on those tasty horns, you get a delicious blend of soul, R&B, and funk that keeps
audiences coming back for more. There’s a genuine excitement that radiates from
the stage and embraces the crowd. It’s all part of what makes the band a favorite!
The band was awarded the 2011 Detroit Music Award for Outstanding R&B
Artist/Group and was nominated again in 2012, 2013, and 2014. Even though this is
the first band she’s been in, singer Kathleen Murray has earned Detroit Music Award
nominations for Outstanding Blues/R&B Vocalist in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.inner of the prestigious Detroit Music
Friday, August 5 – The Madcat Midnight Blues Journey
Grammy Award winning Peter “Madcat” Ruth has established an international reputation through his exhilarating, riveting virtuosity on the harmonica. He is equally at home playing blues, folk, country, or rock and roll. The Madcat Midnight Blues Journey is an eclectic quartet fueled by the guitar and steel fireworks of Drew “Cap’n Midnight” Howard, and propelled by the mighty rhythm section of bassist Mark Schrock and drummer Michael Shimmin, and all conducted by harmonica wizard, Peter “Madcat” Ruth. A night to remember in Lexington, “The First Resort North”!
Friday, August 12 – Elton Rohn
Elton Rohn is thrilling audiences across Canada and the USA. As Elton Rohn, Ron Camilleri’s ability to transform into Elton John is uncanny. Audiences are amazed and they come away with the feeling of seeing a 1970’s Elton John concert. Every not is played live, no tracks, and the band features four part harmony. Ron sounds, looks, plays the piano and performs as if the legendary performer was there. Elton Rohn has headlined over 100 shows including festivals across Canada and the USA, including Las Vegas where they were the only Elton John Tribute asked to play the Elton John Convention! They’ve been called one of the best tributes anywhere, and it is a privilege to have them here in the Village of Lexington. Come on out to enjoy this world class band’s performance.
Friday, August 19 – Dave Bennett’s Rockin’ the 50’s
Dave Bennett doesn’t fit the mold. You may not find another clarinet virtuoso who occasionally breaks from his Swing Era repertoire to sing rock-a-billy hits while accompanying himself at the piano where he plays a mean barrelhouse boogie-woogie. If anyone can return the clarinet to its heyday, it’s Dave Bennett, who fuses serious jazz improvisation with a host of modern pop influences. A crowd favorite in Lexington for many years Dave is returning to our stage to wrap up the Music in the Park season in grand style!
