Categories No Categories
The 2nd Annual Mulholland Street Music Fest will hit the former Nauvoo Grade School grounds on Saturday, May 27 with a bang. New acts along with a few repeating acts will fill the air with great sounds beginning at 4 p.m.
The Warsaw High School Jazz Band kicks off the show, followed by the unique musical group the Lemmings. Kaylee McGhghy will perform the National Anthem and then the music starts right back up. The faith group, Overcometh, will take the stage, followed by the duo of Dallas Kraus and Dominic Jones. Repeat act from our first show, the ever-popular, hometown musician, Cole Pezley will take the stage next. Cole studied philosophy and classic guitar at Millikin University after graduating from Nauvoo-Colusa in 2002. Cole currently lives in Chicago and performs regularly in Chicago clubs with his band, the Icarians. New to the Music Fest this year, is Luke Schwan, another Nauvoo native that has extended his music beyond high school. Luke lives in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and, like Cole, plays the club scene regularly. We can expect a little classic rock, blues, country and some funk along with some original works. The group to finish off the night is a return group plus one – Aaron Kennedy and Jonathan O’Neal wowed everyone last year, and, now have added Isaac Temple to round out their group. The three call themselves the Hellcat Trio from Boston, Mass. and started playing after meeting at Berkley College of Music. They will blast out 50’s rock-n-roll, rockabilly and blues. Their diverse backgrounds and deep knowledge of music lets them speak the language of this old rock n roll music in a new way, delivering energetic performances that bring the 50’s rock into a modern dimension. If a few are up to it, a possible jam session will end the evening.
Along with the music, there will be a bounce house, dunk tank and face painting to keep the younger groups entertained. Proceeds from the event will help with the joint fireworks show expense which will happen on July 1. Admission to the Music Fest is free and food and drinks will be available for sale. Bring your lawn chairs and kick back and enjoy!
