Lehigh Valley based 60s and 70s band TimeWhy?s make their first appearance in the Borough of Kutztown Concert Series in the Park on June 22.
The free concert will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Kutztown Park Bandshell.
"This eastern Pennsylvania band, inspired by the creativity of the Beatles and other 60s groups, debuted in 2013 and strive to reproduce many of the intricate details of the original performances in the songs they play," according to the band's profile. "Listeners have been impressed by the quality of their vocals and harmonies, so much so that the Lehigh Valley's leading newspaper, the Morning Call, presented TimeWhy?s with their Readers' Choice 2017 award for Best Local Band."
The five-piece band consists of Dave Follweiler, Tom Drago, Gene Cullison, Mark Johnson and Frank Drago. They will take you on a magical 60s and 70s experience as you twist and shout to the greatest music of our time.
Think back to an era filled with freedom, good times, free spirited music of the Woodstock era and the years that followed with that music explosion of the late 60s to early 70s. It was a decade that influenced the start and popularity of great bands that span different genres of music like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Lovin Spoonful, the Spencer Davis Group, BTO, Jimmy Hendrix, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, The Bee Gees, The Beach Boys, The Hollies, The Young Rascals, Neil Diamond, Roy Orbison, Nazareth, The Who, and many more. This was a time when wonderful music featuring vocals, lyrics and guitar and keyboard solos could be heard on your favorite AM radio station, at school dances, and hanging out with the gang.
The band reproduces many of the intricate details in their vocals and instrumentals of the original artists’ performances. TimeWhy?s believe you should remember the songs the way they were presented by the great artists that introduced them to you decades ago.
TimeWhy?s has been a very popular show in the Allentown and Pennsylvania and New Jersey areas and hopefully many can join in the free concert fun as we bring their entertainment to the Kutztown area.
Come early for a seat in the covered bandshell, or bring blankets or lawn chairs to sit in the lawn area, or you can even hear them from the playground and sandbox area.
The park concession stand Mad Dogs in the Park will be open before and during the concert, with a variety of hot dogs, wraps, salads, various varieties of fries, chicken tenders, and many other items for your enjoyment.
The concert is free to the public and is part of the Borough of Kutztown 2019 Concert Series in the Park, and will be held rain or shine in the covered Kutztown Park Bandshell.
