The renowned country music sensationThe Cramer Brothers Band will perform for the first time in the Kutztown Park Bandshell June 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. as part of this year’s Borough of Kutztown’s 2013 Concert Series in the Park.
The Cramer Brothers Band is well known throughout Pennsylvania and the east coast for their vocal and phenomenal instrumental classic country music sound, and have performed locally at the Kutztown Fair. They will perform a variety of contemporary country, classic country, and bluegrqass music. Randy and Ray Cramer re-formed the band more than a decade ago, after the passing of their father, Ron Cramer, who formed the original Cramer Brothers Band more than 25 years ago, when Ray and Randy began their musical careers when they were only 12 and 10 years old.
The multi-talented family has formed an excellent combination of musical and vocal talent originating from the Pocono Mountains area, and have become one of the premier acts in country music. They have opened for, and backed up country music sensations such as Merle Haggard, George Jones, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Ronnie Millsap, Ray Stevens, Mickey Gilley, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Faith Hill, to name a few.
The band consists of Ray Cramer, on acoustic, electric and steel guitar and signing lead vocals; Randy Cramer on fiddle; R.J. Cramer on fiddle (following in his fathers footsteps); Bill Matlack on drums; Allen Roth on bass guitar and string bass; Mike Carr on the electric guitar; and Alan VanWhy on the steel guitar.
If you love great music, excellent fiddle playing, and a wonderful entertaining country music sound, then this is a must see concert. The concert will be held under our covered bandshell, which has permanent bench seating available. Or you can bring your lawn chairs and sit outside in our shaded Kutztown Park. Come early, as we expect this concert will fill up quickly.
The concert is free to the public and is part of the Borough of Kutztown 2013 Concert Series in the Park and will be held rain or shine in the covered Kutztown Park Bandshell.
