A Night of Serendipity

by John Wroblewski

Jul 31, 2022

Serendipity is the occurrence of events by chance. Serendipity is also a pop/rock band from the Chicago area. Last night, serendipity led me to Serendipity.Serendipity

Last week my friend Jim mentioned enjoying a Serendipity concert. While at my library, I saw a poster for Wednesdays on the Green, a concert series in the courtyard. Serendipity was the next band.

We arrived early and set up our lawn chairs. By the time the concert started, I was surprised to see about 300 people. Serendipity started on time and immediately filled the air with lively covers of songs from the 1960s–80s.

Serendipity played an energetic 90-minute set. The popular songs were mixed with fun banter. Each musician had a solo moment to shine. The vocals were strong and the music was tight. I was really impressed by the entire band.

One other wonderful part of the show was seeing the mix of ages. Toddlers danced in front of the stage while folks of all other ages danced off to the sides or grooved in their seats. I’m sure the neighboring retirement home had many of its residents in attendance.

I really enjoyed Serendipity. While talking with them after the show, I picked up a card listing future concerts. I look forward to seeing them again. I also learned they are working on original songs.

Just blocks from my place, I look forward to a few more concerts this summer. It’ll be tough for anyone to top Serendipity, but I’m sure they will be excellent.
