Wally & The Beaves bring back the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll to the Concerts on the Green stage Aug. 19 at the Issaquah Community Center.
Picnicking kicks off at 6 p.m.; bring a blanket. Music is from 7-8:30 p.m. As many as 500 revelers attend, so come early to stake out your spot.
Wally & The Beaves, six of the most respected artists and musicians in the Pacific Northwest, formed in spring 2011. The band’s unique show has been gaining a loyal following since.
Each member of the band brings a bit of humor by dressing like well-known iconic characters from the era, from Buddy Holly to Susie Q.
In honor of the decade known for poodle skirts and leather jackets, Rowley Properties Inc. is sponsoring a 1950’s fashion contest during the concert.
A panel of judges will help award prizes to the top three best-dressed participants. The contest winners will be announced at 6:45 p.m. The concert starts at 7 p.m.
The Issaquah History Museums will also host a display of photos and short stories from the cities past.
The concerts, at 301 Rainier Blvd. S., are presented by Issaquah’s Parks & Recreation Department and the Issaquah Arts Commission, in collaboration with the Kiwanis Club of Issaquah. Kiwanis sells refreshments during the show, including hotdogs and hamburgers.
Be sure to catch the season finale of the Concerts on the Green series Aug. 26, with the BrickHouse Show Band, bringing the hits from decades of music.
The concerts are free, but donations are accepted. The money is put toward the next season of concerts.
