There is only one more concert left in the 2010 Swingin’ at the Shell concert series.  It has been a wonderful season with a wide variety of music.

The past two weeks have seen great music, wonderful crowds and a special community.  On August 29th Big Daddy Polka band took the stage and created a friendly atmosphere and a special moment at the end of the concert.  All those in attendance joined hands in a large circle in front of the band shell and honored our country by singing God Bless America.

On September 5th, The Hillsdale Jazz Band took the stage and again created a wonderful atmosphere for a concert in the park. Their smooth jazz was perfect with the backdrop of the Victory Park Band Shell.

This coming Sunday, September 12th is the final concert.  The entertainment will be the Capital Area Brass Band which is sure to please the masses.  It is also free hot dog night.  The Sponsors will be cooking up hot dogs and providing chips and drinks to all who attend the concert.  It is sure to be a great ending note of a wonderful concert series.  Come out and join the fun!

Well another week of summer has passed and another wonderful concert has taken place. Yesterday we had Los Bandits. Their Tex Mex style music filled the park for the evening.  It was a wonderful evening, with a great crowd and even better music.  Here are just a few pictures from the great evening with  Los Bandits.

Week number 2 of the Swingin’ at the Shell summer concert series just finished and it was a hit.  So far Kevin Collins and Small Town Son have taken the stage by storm and been great evening entertainment for the whole family.

Next week the stage will host Hot Club of Lansing. They perform gypsy jazz and accoustic swing – emphasizing Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s jazz style from Paris in the 1930′s and 40′s, but also touching on bebop and classic american jazz standards. Music to move your soul…and your feet!

Welcome to the new Swingin’ at the Shell website! Please stay tuned for more information and we look forward to seeing you at the concerts starting August 1st, 2010! Thanks for visiting the site and we will see you August 1st at 6pm!
