Friday, July 12, 2019 – Creole du Nord
Creole du Nord’s sound can be traced to southwest Louisiana’s traditional music. On fiddles, accordion, guitar, bass, pedal steel, and drums, they mix things up – keeping uneasy company with slicker stuff of today’s music. When you hear Creole du Nord you move to the groove, dance and have fun. And if you’re wondering “Where do they get their passion?” It seems that Creole, Cajun & Zydeco music from Louisiana music bring a real element of passion to this band. It’s become of a mission of band leader Mark Palms to find Cajun & Zydeco tunes, waltzes, and old-time fiddle tunes that lift the spirit and inspire his talented bandmates.
Creole du Nord is proud to be a small part of keeping this passionate music alive. So if you find them playing for a community event, a festival, or somewhere on the street…I am certain you’ll enjoy what you hear and will appreciate their passionate music.
Friday, July 19, 2019 – Boogie Dynamite

Singing all of your favorite dance tunes from the BeeGees to the Black Eyed Peas, they will have you movin’ & grooving’ the night away. Make no mistake, when the Boogie is in town, ain’t no other band around!

Friday, August 2, 2019 – 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 at area festivals and keeps them in-demand at local clubs.
Friday, August 9, 2019 – Rhythm Society Orchestra
Welcome back to the Lexington stage the Rhythm Society Orchestra! The RHYTHM SOCIETY is a 15-piece dance band specializing in true vintage swing music. Their sound is heavily influenced by Count Basie and Harry James.
“Backed by the solid, horn-heavy sounds of the swingin’ Rhythm Society, handsome front man Paul King belts out the tunes in vintage suave style. In an instant, you’ll be transported into the dance halls of the ’30s and ’40s, where a cool-suited cat grabs the hand of the nearest full-skirted honey and the dance-floor crowd parts to watch them take a manic dip and twirl.” – Karen Fisher, METRO TIMES “Irresistible big band sound – simply flawless” – Sarah Klein, METRO TIMES
We are beyond excited to bring this big band sound back to Lexington in 2019!
Friday, August 16, 2019 – 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!
