GREENVILLE — Concerts in the park will continue this Sunday, August 6 with a concert scheduled by the Greenville Municipal Concert Band. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at the Marling Band Shell area of the Greenville City Park.
This week, the band will perform a fantastic concert of Motown favorites. Motown provided the world with many great songs and artists. “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” popularized by Diana Ross, “Land of a Thousand Dances” by Wilson Pickett and “You Make Me Feel” by Aretha Franklin are great examples of the brilliance of the music written and performed in that era.
Featured performers for the evening will be the Green DeVilles. The Green DeVilles is a local band that covers a variety of music and artists such as Etta James, the Beatles, the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Ozzy Osbourne and Elvis to name a few.
The band consists of Cindy Slick (vocals), Will Stacy (bass /vocals), Mike Homan (drums/vocals) and Bill Westfall (guitar/vocals). The Green DeVilles will join the Greenville Municipal Concert Band for a tribute to two great Motown Legends, The Four Tops and The Temptations. The bands will perform together “Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)” and “Baby I need Your Lovin’” from the Four Tops and “My Girl and Get Ready” from the Temptations.
Please plan to attend this wonderful show of Motown hits. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. with limited park bench seating available. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to enjoy the concert as well. Food trucks will be on hand to satisfy your pre-concert appetites. The concerts are always free of charge and a great family date night. It is shaping up to be a very big evening in the park on Sunday, August 6, so plan to arrive early for good parking.
