'Concert in the Park' to Feature "Big-Band" Music & Picnic Competition!

May 12, 2010

The annual Concert in the Park, an island tradition and resident favorite, returns this Saturday, May 15th to the shores of Smythe Lake with a new twist and spin – literally!

The event will feature, for the first time, Jeremy Davis & The Equinox Jazz Orchestra, a high-energy stage show and music ensemble sure to 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 much, much more.

In his own words, Jeremy describes the band as, “The Rat Pack meets The Dean Martin Variety Show with a touch of A Prairie Home Companion. It’s plain to see that we love what we do, and we love our fans. We’re not your grandfather’s big band.”

As in previous years, the Daniel Island Community Fund will again host a picnic competition for concertgoers. The best overall picnic spread will win $500 to contribute to their charity of choice.

It’s a great way to be creative and have fun but also compete to win a chance to help others! Guests are invited to come grab a spot and set up their picnic spreads throughout the day on Saturday.

For those who’d rather not pack a picnic, there will be food vendors’ onsite including Orlando’s Italian Eatery, Et Cetera Gourmet and T&T’s Kettle Korn.

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 chance to visit with neighbors and friends, enjoy a beautiful Lowcountry spring night and listen to great music!
