Go Hawaiian with the Hula Monsters
CHESTERTOWN, MD, July 9, 2013—The second free performance in the Washington College Riverfront Concert Series will feature the lively sounds of the Hula Monsters this Thursday evening, July 11, at 6:30. Hosted by the College’s C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience, the event will take place on the Custom House lawn, corner of High and Water streets in downtown Chestertown.
Once described by a Washington Post writer as “one of the best bands in the world,” the Hula Monsters combine accomplished musicianship with wacky humor and aloha warmth. The band’s signature mix includes swing, rockabilly, Hawaiian, blues, and traditional country/honky-tonk tunes.
As with all Riverfront Concert Series events, attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets, lawn chairs and picnic dinners. Complimentary lemonade and cookies will be available. In case of inclement weather, the concert will take place in The Egg, a performance space in Hodson Hall Commons on the main Washington College campus.
The Washington College Riverfront Concert Series concludes its season on July 25 with Jennifer Cutting’s award-winning Celtic, folk and folk-rock ensemble OCEAN Quartet, with acclaimed vocalist Lisa Moscatiello.
Launched by the Starr Center in 2010, the Riverfront Concert Series builds on the Center’s longstanding interest in the musical traditions of the Chesapeake Bay and its rich heritage of storytelling. The series’ host is Starr Center program manager Michael Buckley, whose weekly radio program on Annapolis-based WRNR, 103.1 FM (Sundays, 7 to 10 AM, www.wrnr.com) includes the acclaimed interview series “Voices of the Chesapeake Bay.”
