Local 845, Beacon's local concert production group, is gonna put on a free concert down by the Hudson River in beautiful Beacon, NY—and everyone's invited. In fact, we're gonna rock that park with three bands, THE FLESHTONES, TRACY BONHAM, and YARN.
This free fest will take place on Saturday, June 26, beginning at 2pm and ending at dusk. It’s a rain-or-shine affair.
There’s a little something for everyone. Here’s the line-up:
THE FLESHTONES: Led by the tireless vocalist-keyboardist Peter Zaremba, please welcome the veteran kings of garage rock. http://www.fleshtones.org/
TRACY BONHAM: The Grammy-nominated pop-rock singer-songwriter-violinist is about to release her new album, “Masts of Manhatta,” in July. http://www.tracybonham.com/
YARN: The sparkling, Brooklyn-based alt-country band led by Blake Christiana is about to release their new album, “Come On In.” http://www.yarnmusic.net/
For months, we've been out there working it, putting on our faces and taking meetings, hocking tee shirts, singing in Main Street joints, and throwing pancake parties—all to raise the funds to make this bash a reality. We've got $2,000 to go.
Please help us fill this Kickstarter tip jar to the rim, and we will be on our way to bringing all these great bands to town for a show the likes of which Beacon's never seen.
Forward this to friends and family near and far. Five, ten, twenty bucks in the jar goes a long way. And that's a bargain, the kind of money you lose in the laundry and forget about.

Please help us make it happen. Please volunteer. Please attend.
