Friends of the Park Concert at Thornwood Park (Wilmette, IL)

The 6th(?) annual summer concert at Thornwood Park, Wilmette, IL was held yesterday.

This year there were at least four bands (see below) that performed and the concerts lasted from 3:00 - 8:00pm. Though (or maybe because) the weather was on the cool side, there was a large crowd (by my estimate 300 - 400 people). Both my wife and I thought that it was great to see a public space being enjoyed by so many people.

Bands:
- East of Edens featuring Harper dads (and mom) Hamilton Chang, Dan Collyer, Tom Denman, Eileen Engelhard, Herb Engelhard, Jeff Hackl, Jack Jenkins, Bob Lindstrom and Kevin Lyons

- The Lucky Jackson Band featuring Harper dad Chris Karabas

- Mr. Sparkle featuring Harper dads Rob Phillips, Wayne Rigney and Gary Schotz

- Legs Akimbo featuring original rock and blues music
