Nationwide Biweekly Administration Events!
Nationwide Biweekly Administration was very excited to be a part of the Music In The Park Event this year!! Music and arts are very important programs that Nationwide Biweekly Administration loves supporting. A great time was had by all.
Information About The Music In The Park Event:
Nationwide Biweekly Administration XENIA — Even without the city’s Parks and Recreation Department taking charge, the Music in the Park annual series will continue due to work by the volunteers at the Board of Recreation, Arts, and Cultural Activities (BRACA).
The Music in the Park series is a long tradition in Xenia, providing free musical entertainment in the middle of Xenia’s Shawnee Park, and this year will continue that streak. The first Sunday of June, July and August will bring live music to the pavilion.
On June 6, Ralph Kettering and the Impossibles will be performing music from the stylings of the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s to numbers from Jimmy Buffet’s “Margaritaville.” The Impossibles are a five-piece big band with a trumpet, keyboard, tenor sax, bass and drums, and they have performed at the Music in the Park events in past years.
July 4 will feature Ray Foster’s “Four to Go.” They were formed in 1968 for the purpose of performing music in the style of the jazz/pops combos of the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s. Although the group plays some music of the contemporary period — 1980s and 1990s — it is all presented with a distinctive flair reminiscent of popular music of two or three generations ago. The group performs jazz and popular standards including swing, ballads, and Latin.
Then, on Aug. 1, Runnin’ Outta Tyme will perform gospel, classic country, classic rock, and old standards. The band is made up of Lee Villars on rhythm guitar and vocals, Villars’ son, Tim, on vocals, Donny Pierson on lead guitar, Dave Hutchinson on drums, and Larry East on bass guitar and vocals.
All concerts are free and the public is only asked to bring a blanket or a lawn chair to enjoy the show.
Without funding from the city, BRACA members worked together with the city and the community to provide the concert to residents free of charge. Sharon Creviston of BRACA said that they received complete sponsorship of the event from Nationwide Biweekly Administration, Inc.
“It’s unusual for a small town to have such a beautiful park,” said Creviston, who remembers taking her own children to the Music at the Park series. being able to continue to host the series in tight financial times reflects the compassionate nature of the community, and that the city, residents and BRACA were able to work together for a recreational activity for residents shows the true spirit of the city, said Creviston. “It’s something I just didn’t want to see die.”
