July 29 — FAIR HAVEN — Miss Paula and the Twangbusters will be making their debut appearance in Fair Haven’s Park on Thursday, July 29. Describing themselves as a “juke joint cocktail for your soles” this band will serve up a healthy dose of honky-tonk swing. The band is led by dynamo Paula Bradley (Miss Paula), described as “Patsy Cline meets Bessie Smith” on lead vocals, piano & ukulele. She is joined by fellow music masters Kevin Maul (steel guitar); Peter Bearup (electric guitar); Bob Resnick (drums); Lance MacIntosh, Jaybird Gorleski, and Brian Rost (Doghouse bass). Make sure you bring your dancing shoes to this concert as a lot of toe-tapping and hand clapping is expected.
The concerts start promptly at 7 p.m. and visitors are encourage to come early and get a great seat. The park has several benches and tables for those who want to bring along some food and eat before the show.
Due to concerns caused by the pandemic, and the limited number of people allowed inside at the time of planning, we do not have an alternate indoor location. That means in case of severe storms or lightning or even the threat of those storms, we will need to cancel the concert. The concert committee does have a hotline at 265-3010 ext. 301. We will post any news or information on the hotline the day of the concerts.
The purchase of food, sodas, and water and the 50/50 raffles continue to be one way in which our audiences support the concert.
