Rotary Alexandra extends an open invitation to all of our community to come and enjoy a free “Music in the Park” event on Saturday 3 March 2018, 4.00-8.00pm at Rotary Park.
Our vision is our own mini “Day on the Green” experience – with people enjoying music, picnicking and connecting with each other in a relaxed atmosphere. We have 3 great acts lined up who will play two sets each. All of them are nationally recognised but also have personal links to our community.
Trev Dwyer has twenty-two years playing and recording with various rock, blues, soul, funk, country, afro pop and acid jazz groups.  Now performing solo with only his trusty acoustic guitar and a catalogue of classic acoustic blues, soul and jazz standards, he delivers each song with the passion and attention that only decades of experience can bring.
Alyce Platt is an TV performer and singer/ songwriter who has just released her third album FUNNY LITTLE WORLD. Alyce has been described as “a songbird, torch-singer and story teller of the heart and soul.ELIZABETH KEMP – (Associate Artistic Director of the Actors Studio, New York)
Jo Talia is a local legend with a wide repertoire of roots guitar music of the pre-war blues, and influences from the great piedmont, ragtime and country blues masters such as Big Bill Broonzy, Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Blake and Tampa Red. Joe’s sophisticated fingerstyle of Boogie Woogie, vintage swing, cowboy jazz and bluegrass.
People can bring their own picnics and drinks, or purchase on site. Rotary will have a BBQ, there will be an ice-cream van and Roaming Poppy will meet your hot drink needs.
While we are hoping for a balmy evening of early Autumn ambience – there is a wet weather plan and the music will go ahead regardless at an alternative location. Full details will be on the Rotary Alexandra website and Facebook page if required.
If this is successful and builds interest, Rotary plan to run more such events on a regular basis. Your ideas and feedback to Rotary are always welcome. See Community social media notice boards and on the Rotary Alexandra Facebook page for more information.
