UPDATE: Gary Hopp at Academy This Week; Sliding Capos Now Aug. 12

by | Aug 1, 2021

Gary Hopp & Friends Wednesday and The Sliding Capos next Thursday

The Town of EG announced changes to the concert schedule this week, bowing to the weather forecast. So far, three of the four annual Thursday town summer concerts have run into rain problems, forcing the cancellation of the first concert and a move inside Swift Community Center for the two others. There are two remaining concerts.

Gary Hopp and Friends (aka The Good Vibe Tribe) – is now schedule to perform Wednesday, Aug. 4, rain or shine. If it does rain, the concert will move into Swift.

The concert featuring The Sliding Capos – the last concert of the season – has been rescheduled for Thursday, Aug. 12.

Gary Hopp and Friends plays classic rock, country and oldies. The Sliding Capos (Hub Brennan, Gary Brisco & Co.) perform classics, R&B, Motown, soul and surf music. Rumor has it they will be inviting special guests to the stage for a song or two also.

For the uninitiated, the concerts at Academy Field are free and go from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Concertgoers are invited to bring blankets and/or chairs as well as a picnic, dancing shoes optional (you can always dance in your bare feet!). Park in the town lot next to Swift.

And send a prayer yo the weather gods!
