AUBURN, Mass. – Windfall, a classic rock band, hits the stage at the Riley-Pappas Performance Pavilion on Thursday as a part of the free Summer in the Park Concert Series presented by the town of Auburn.
The free concert starts at 6 p.m. at the Pappas Recreation Complex. Previous summer concerts featured oldies, bluegrass and Broadway tunes.
According to its website, Windfall plays a variety of music, including songs from Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers, The Doors, Foreigner, Pat Benetar, Scandal, The Animals, Eddie Money, The Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz, AC/DC, Loverboy, Tommy Tutone and Spirit, among others.
The band consists of six members. Bob Stickle and Rich LaPearl play guitar, daughter/father duo Angela Morello and John Morello sing, Rick Feeley slaps the bass, and Steve Kruglewicz rocks out on the drums.
The band plays most of its shows in Worcester County, including Grafton, Oxford and Holden. Windfall also has a show scheduled in Boston next February.
Hometown Bank is sponsoring the Windfall concert and the final one on Sept. 6. The bank, which is opening in September in Auburn, donated $5,000 to the Summer in the Park Concert Series.
“I heard from the bank’s Board of Trustees, and they want to work with the community as they open a new branch at Heritage Plaza,” said Town Manager Julie Jacobson. “They wanted to make a donation to something that would benefit the entire community. The $5,000 will be used to fund the two remaining concerts and the balance will fund concerts next year.”
Hometown Bank will have its grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 10 a.m.
The town of Auburn also thanks the Auburn Foundation, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Friends of the Pappas Recreational Complex for making the summer concerts possible.
The Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra’s performance July 29 inaugurated the series. Sept. 6 will be the final summer concert as Panache hits the stage at 6 p.m.
