Fair Haven welcomes Hand Picked Band to concert series

Thursday, Aug. 9, 7 p.m.—FAIR HAVEN—The Fair Haven Concerts in the Park has seen some large crowds of concert-goers this season. Organizers hope to pack the park for the last two concerts, too. On Thursday, Aug. 9, they welcome The Hand Picked Band. While they will be new to the concert series, they are very well-known in the area.

The Hand Picked Band is a cover band playing a variety of music from rock and country classics, to today’s new country hits and pop. With five singers, the vocals take center stage with backing instrumentation designed to complement the singers. Band members consist of: Glen Pratt, lead guitar and vocals; Thom Burke, drums and vocals; Jeff Durkee, bass guitar and vocals; Nicole Durkee-Saunders, lead female vocals; and Beth Durkee, backup vocals.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. Come early for easier parking. There will be a door prize drawing and 50/50 raffle. There are picnic tables in the park and we often see families and groups of friends dining during the concert. Hot dogs, sodas, water, and popcorn are available for purchase each week.

The concerts go on rain or shine. The Fair Haven Congregational Church offers use of the church as the rain location. For more information, call 802-265-3010 ext. 301.
