Pack Your Picnics for a Favorite Island Tradition: The Annual ‘Concert in the Park’

May 9, 2012

The annual Concert in the Park, a popular island tradition, returns Saturday, May 12th to the shores of Smythe Lake. Jeremy Davis & The Equinox Jazz Orchestra will be returning this year for a high-energy stage show and music ensemble that is sure to once again get the crowd on their feet!

Performing in the “Great-American Big-Band” tradition, Jeremy Davis and his 16-piece orchestra will entertain with music from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Harry Connick Jr. and more. Jeremy has described the band as “The Rat Pack meets ‘The Dean Martin Variety Show,’ with a touch of ‘A Prairie Home Companion’ in between.” This is not your grandfather’s big band!

As in previous years, the Daniel Island Community Fund will host a picnic competition for concertgoers. Prizes will be awarded for the most elaborate and creative picnic spread. Guests are invited to come grab a spot and set up their spreads throughout the day on Saturday.

Picnic judging will be at 6:00 pm on Saturday evening with the concert beginning at 7:00 pm.

Don’t miss this fun and free opportunity to enjoy a spring evening of live music with neighbors and friends under the oaks in Smythe Park!
