to perform July 15
Big Bang Boom Band will present a
concert Monday, July 15, at 6 p.m. at Pa-
triot’s Park as part of the 2013 Summer
Reading Program at Mauney Memorial
Established in 2007 in Greensboro,
this rockin’ 3-piece power pop band con-
sists of talented artists and long-time mu-
sicians, and doesn’t play just any ole
average music. These dynamic dads play
parent-friendly music.
After 20 years of touring, Chuck,
Steve and Eddie decided to expand their
horizons and play for parents (like them-
selves) who want more from children’s
music. They write songs with a pop sen-
sibility by cleverly mixing alternative,
hip-hop, pop, country, and other genres to
create music that parents and children can
relate to and enjoy! Think of it as a “kid-
appropriate frat party.” The band is set to
release their third CD.
You can listen to Big Bang Boom on
Kindiecast, Saturday Morning Cereal
Bowl, and Spare the Rock Spoil the
Between 5 — 6 p.m., Created to Praise
Dance Academy, owned and operated by
Kelli Putnam, will be passing out free
children’s books.
