The Claverack Republican Club is happy to announce that their Summer Concert Series will return to Claverack in July!
This year’s Concert Series will feature three special promotion nights for local community service organizations and the fifth annual Emergency Services Appreciation Night.
The series takes place Thursday evenings in July and August at the Claverack Town Park, Church Street, Mellenville. All the concerts are free of charge and open to the public.
These community concerts have become a popular tradition in Claverack over the years. The club was forced to cancel their 2020 season due to the pandemic, but looks forward to getting back together and enjoying the area’s most popular country and rock bands this year.
The season opener is Thursday, July 8th when the local favorite Southbound will take the stage.
The Thursday, July 15th concert by the Darrick Kenney Band includes a special promotion for the Mellenville-Philmont Food Pantry. Attendees are asked to bring non-perishable food items and monetary donations for the food pantry that serves the entire Claverack community.
On July 22nd, Jarrod performs for the fifth annual Emergency Services Appreciation Night, a special salute to area first responders that includes free hamburgers, hot dogs and giveaways for fire, EMS and police personnel. This is a terrific night to attend to support all of those who protect our community.
July 29th is the Columbia-Greene Humane Society concert, featuring the Night Moves Band. Attendees are encouraged (but not obligated) to bring cat and dog food, old blankets and towels, paper towels, cat litter and, of course, monetary donations for this long-time twin-county rescue organization saving our forgotten and neglected pets.
Back by popular request, The Oldies Show returns to town on August 5th for oldies night, bringing their retro take on rock oldies and doo-wop.
August 19th features a concert by the very popular band Jarrod and features a special promotion for the Everlasting Hope Animal Rescue. Attendees are asked (but not obligated) to bring cat and dog food, old blankets and towels, kitty litter, paper towels and, of course, monetary donations for this locally-based rescue group saving our forgotten pets.
The snack bar is open each concert night from 7 to 8:30 offering hamburgers, hot dogs, French Fries, Mary Jeanne’s fried dough, drinks and weekly specials, all at very reasonable prices.
