The kids will be entertained all day, too, with the frog pond game (a winner every time!), children’s games and free pony rides.
Live Music this year is co-sponsored by Pine Creek Real Estate. Funktrucker will be performing from 10 a.m. until noon featuing local talents Jamie Osgood, Jason Eshelman and Jake Blass. They will be entertaining with a variety of rock and country favorites.
Every Tom, Jeff & Larry is on stage from 12:30 until 3:30 p.m. Formed in 2005, Every Tom, Jeff & Larry perform “just for the fun of playing some of their favorite music from 50s and 60s.” Tom, a local patent lawyer, plays rhythm guitar and harmonica. Jeff, a local barber who once played bass in a rock band in New York City and later for area musicals, plays bass guitar. Larry plays lead guitar and keyboards. He has been professionally involved with the music business since 1975 as a hit songwriter for Anne Murray, Ronnie Milsap and many other artists. He is an arranger/orchestrator and has been a television and film composer in Los Angeles. He is currently working on the CMT music game show, The Singing Bee. All three sing lead vocals and background vocals. The band once went by the name of The Rockaholics but, after losing their drummer, they re-formed as a trio with the tongue-in-cheek name of Every Tom, Jeff & Larry. The band is backed by drum tracks and, at times, other instruments, all played by Larry and recorded in his studio.
