Gator Nation to headline LOV concert
Submitted By Shirley Sisk
An energetic afternoon of hand-clapping and foot-stomping music is on tap Sunday, May 20 when Gator Nation performs a concert of Cajun, Zydeco and New Orleans Rhythm and Blues tunes in Fremont. Sponsored by League of Volunteers and the Newark Arts Council, the free program will be in the Thornton Junior High School Multi-Purpose Auditorium, Fremont. Doors open at 1 p.m. and the music starts at 2 p.m.
Band members are Williard Blackwell on vocals and washboard; David Scott on saxophone, pennywhistle and vocals; Randy Quan on guitar and vocals; Dennis Hadley on accordion and backup vocals; Tim Haggerty on bass and Bobby ÒGÓ on drums. Their unique brand of South Louisiana music has been described as always spicy, like a good gumbo.
Admission is free, with a suggested donation at the door. Complimentary refreshments will be served during the intermission. For program details, call (510) 793-5683 or check the LOV website at www.lov.org.
