LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Zydeco-A-Go-Go, the popular area band that blends Louisiana rhythm and blues with New Orleans rock-and-roll, returns Sunday (June 25, 2023) for yet another year to open the 2023 series of summer concerts in Lower Pottsgrove Township.
The concert, and five others to follow through August, starts at 6 p.m. at the band shell of Sanatoga Park, 200 S. Sanatoga Rd. It’s free to attend, open to the public, and unabashed dancing is welcomed at both sides of the stage.
It’s a weather-permitting event, however. If rain spoils the fun its postponement will be announced on the township’s Facebook page. In that event, the concert likely could be re-scheduled for Monday (June 26) at 7 p.m., also at the band shell.
The park’s a comfortable place
Those who have not visited the park in awhile will find many improvements there. A new playground has been installed for youngsters, not far from the stage. Restrooms, also nearby, are well cleaned and freshly painted. Walkways surrounding the band shell are paved and easily navigated. The park offers an abundance of parking on its upper and lower levels.
It’s advisable to bring seating. Come equipped with either a blanket on which to sit or lie on the park’s gentle slope facing the bandstand, or a folding chair to place on its several tiered seating levels.
Bring your appetite too. Members of the Sanatoga Fire Company are offering refreshments and snacks for purchase while supplies last before and during the show. Hot dogs will be just a dollar apiece; arrive early and chow down, the volunteer firefighters suggest. Want to bring a meal or picnic? That’s allowed, too, and if tables are needed a sheltered picnic area is also nearby.
Coming up next
Also scheduled to perform on coming Sundays, all at 6 p.m., are:
- July 9, The Bill Koss Combo;
- July 16, Flamin’ Dick and the Hot Rods;
- July 23, Stephanie Grace;
- July 30, Carnaby Street; and
- Aug. 6, The Pottsgrove Community Band.
Sponsorships make the free concerts possible. This year’s summer concert series sponsors are J.P. Mascaro & Sons; the law firm of Yergey Daylor Allebach Scheffey and Picardi; and the law firm of High Swartz.
