Belmont Concerts in the Park

The first of four concerts in the park was held this past Saturday evening, with the Center City Groove band, entertaining a relatively sparse crowd based on past history.

The Center City Groove is a 5 piece cover band, doing music from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. Of course, the obligatory “Electric Slide” too.

The band did an OK job, nothing really special – have we become “concerted-out” here in Belmont, or is it all becoming too generic?

The lead singer, ‘Hollywood’, had his mic turned up to the point of distortion. They needed a sound tech or at least someone helping to adjust the loudness. He was a good singer, a bit full of himself, but aren’t all entertainers?

The lead guitar was excellent, his bluesy style and the few solos went over well with the crowd on the hill.

Even with the heat, it seemed to cool off quite a bit when the sun slipped below the treeline. The new program staffer, “Reba” from the Parks and Recreation Department plugged the new concession stand and the ice cream. Must have worked because a lot of people were seen with cones and slushies all evening.

The next concert in the park is next Saturday evening at 7:00 PM. Hopefully, it won’t be quite as hot. The Charlotte Civic Orchestra will be the entertainment.
