AUBURN, Mass. – Kings Row will follow up the Massachusetts Symphony’s stellar performance in Auburn with a free show of its own Thursday night at the Pappas Recreation Complex.
Kings Row, an oldies band, will hit the stage at the Riley-Pappas Performance Pavilion at 6 p.m. as a part of the free “Summer in the Park Concert Series,” presented by the town of Auburn.
“The '50s, '60s music should appeal to a wide audience,” Town Manager Julie Jacobson said. “I hear that they’re excellent.”
According to the band’s website, Kings Row has “elaborate musical arrangements and powerful four-lead-vocals, making every one of their performances exciting and memorable. They consistently produce a sophisticated, emotional and romantic sound.”
The band has a lead guitarist, bassist, keyboardist and drummer.
The performance is sponsored by the Friends of the Pappas Recreation Complex.
“The town manager had lined up all the concerts, and then we as a group decided to pitch in and fund this concert,” said Jennifer LaBonte, a member of the group. “It sounds like they are a very good, popular group.”
The Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra’s performance July 29 inaugurated the series. There will be additional free weekly concerts throughout August on Thursdays at 6 p.m.
On Aug. 9, Southern Rail will perform. On Aug 16, Outriggers takes the stage. On Aug. 23, Christine Taylor will present Broadway favorites with Auburn community players.
Aug. 30 and Sept. 6 have been reserved for rain dates or new performances.
Groups interested in performing can contact Ken Fairbanks, highway superintendent, at 508-832-7814.
