Listen to the music

A brand new summer event is coming to Webster City on June 23.

The Webster City Area Chamber of Commerce is bringing Music in the Park to downtown Webster City. Local residents are invited to bring their lawn chairs to First American Bank Plaza to enjoy an evening of live music. The evening gets underway at 7 p.m. and will conclude at 10 p.m.

“We’re very excited,” said Deb Brown, chamber of commerce executive director. “The is the first time we’ve done anything like this.”

Brown said Music in the Park was the brainchild of Michael Hansen.

“He had the initial idea and we agreed,” Brown said. “First American Bank thought it was a great idea.”

The focus is classic rock with a little country rock thrown in, according to Brown. Several local musicians are on the program for the evening. Michael Hansen and friends will provide the musical equipment. Peter Odegaard, Bill Robb, Justin Cramer, Zach Davis and Maggie Breitenkamp are all scheduled to sing.

“We have musicians who have played all over the state,” Brown said. “Peter (Odegaard) has sung all over the U.S. and Maggie sings in several groups.”

The microphone will also be open for other area musicians, singers or jammers who wish to take part. Anyone who wishes to sing or bring an instrument and sit in and jam are encouraged to attend.

The Webster City Lions Club will be selling pork burgers with chips and a drink for $5. The profits from the meal sales will go towards fixing up Lions Park.

The Chamber will host a 50/50 raffle with one lucky winner’s name to be drawn at 10 p.m. The rest of the proceeds will be used to provide more music on July 28 for the next Music in the Park.

“What a great time to hear some music, maybe even sing and enjoy a Thursday night with friends,” Brown said.
