Here’s how the LA Times describes the band:
A nine-piece band replete with tuba, washboard, accordion, fiddle, mandolin, trumpet and guitar joyously pumped out early 20th century standards and original tunes that would have sounded utterly at home within the hallowed confines of Preservation Hall in New Orleans’ French Quarter. “
We usually say this once a summer, but here it is: if you only go to one TGIF Concert In The Park make it The Dustbowl Revival. You will be glad you did. Music starts at 6 PM.

Back in the mid 1990s when proponents of the Legoland theme park in Carlsbad, California were pressing for votes to get the park approved by City voters they often pointed out that the “little park aimed at kids” would draw tourists from all over the world, because there were only two other Legolands and they were both in Europe.
How things have changed in 20 years. Since opening in 1999 the “little park” in Carlsbad Legoland USA has doubled the number of attractions, added an aquarium, built a hotel, applied to build a second hotel on the property and, oh yeah, built another theme park in Florida on the former grounds of Cypress Gardens. In fact, Legoland (now operated by British theme park mega corp Merlin Entertainments) now has six Legoland parks around the world with their seventh opening in Dubai in October 2016).
Apparently, that’s not enough. The company is now rallying the citizens of Orange County New York to approve the “worlds largest Legoland” in Goshen, New York, according to story in the Times-Union.
Merlin plans to present its plans at a special meeting of the Goshen Town Board at 7:30 p.m. June 14. . . The meeting will be held at the town’s Emergency Services Center, and outline project details for the park. . . The park would be the third in North America. Legoland theme parks already operate near Los Angeles and in Winter Haven, Fla. . . The $800 million project would create 1,500 jobs, according to the Mid-Hudson News Network. The site, off Route 17, is about two hours south of the Capital Region.
The story claims this new park is going to be “massive.” Go get ’em, Merlin. The world needs more theme parks. For the rest of the story, please click the link.
