GALION – Thirteen will turn out to be a lucky number in 2021! Snyder Funeral Home Season 13 The music in the grounds of Richardson Davis Chapel will be the shot that the Galleon region needs to welcome summer to the region and fellowship to our hearts.
After the disappointing cancellation of the 2020 season, the popular concert series returns to Galion’s musical group Heise Park every Tuesday evening in June at 7 p.m.
The series kicks off this year with the Galion High School Jazz Band on June 1. The Jazz Band, reserved for auditions, is part of the larger musical program of the Galion School Program. The program will focus on swing and the “Big Band” style of music. Many students in the Jazz Band program continue their research to earn degrees in musical performance and continue with music throughout their lives.
On June 8, the series welcomes the Oolong Gurus. The OGs, founded by father-son team Brad Williams and Aaron Williams, perform original tunes that are a mix of rock, country and blues. Their fourth album “The Big Plate Diner” was released in 2018, followed by a live album in 2019 “Ooh, Live Gurus”. Their music has won national radio and television time, and the group has toured extensively in the eastern United States. The Snyder Richardson Davis Chapel Funeral Home Music-in-the-Park series is delighted to welcome Oolong Gurus.
Bullit is a band with members of Bucyrus and Galion. Founding member Larry Lovely led the band for 50 years playing corporate events, weddings, reunions, clubs and parties. They offer a variety of classic rock and roll styles ranging from the 50s to the top of the current charts. Bullit will perform on Tuesday, June 15 at 7 p.m. in the series.
Ballroom dancing, swing, rumba, jazz, waltz, tango – and maybe even a polka will be on the program on Tuesday, June 22 when Project 75 takes the stage. Held in 2011, Project 75 performs throughout central Ohio and has proven to be a versatile band with female vocals, a large brass section, keyboards, bass, and drums. Get ready to dance to the eclectic tunes of Project 75.
Favorite Perennial Music in the Park The Gatlin Show will close the series when they take the stage with music group Heise Park on June 29. Darryl and Andrea Gatlin have achieved major success in Nashville with two albums and countless tours alongside Country Stars like Reba McEntire, The Oakridge Boys and Alabama.
