On Friday, August 30th, at 6:30 p.m., the Madison-based band Kings Road will be playing its brand of alternative/light/acoustic rock with harmony vocals and melodic instrumentations at the Chatham Gazebo.
The free, outdoor concert event is the brainchild of longtime Chatham resident Maggie Grady, who, after seeing several live acts around the area this summer, decided that the borough should host one as well.
After speaking with the director of Chatham Community Services, Janice Piccolo, and council members Thadeus Kolbarz and Carolyn Dempsey, Grady wrote a proposal, which the council approved, and her idea will come to fruition.
Grady — the High School Youth Minister at St. Patrick’s Church in Chatham — said that “this is a pilot concert with plans in the works for a full free Chatham concert series next summer.”
It’s recommended that you bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket to the concert for your comfort. Plus, local eateries are ready to provide prompt delivery to the concert so you can enjoy dinner while listening to Kings Road’s music.
