Wednesdays on the Green is back! My plans are made for the next several Wednesday evenings.
In its 12th year, Wednesdays on the Green is presented by Skokie Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Skokie Public Library. Every Wednesday evening, musical acts perform a free concert at Village Green, the courtyard adjacent to the library.
Last week, Serendipity took the stage. A five-member band, Serendipity played an energetic 90-minute set of cover songs. The performance included a mini-tribute to Journey and another to disco music, complete with a costume change (sparkly headbands). The popular songs were mixed with fun banter. With four women up front and a male drummer keeping the beat, Serendipity has a unique look.
Their vocals are strong and the music is tight. They seem to really have fun on stage, which makes it more fun for the audience. Having seen Serendipity several times, I always leave in a great mood.
Later in August, Mellencougar appears. A fantastic John Mellencamp tribute band, Mellencougar also performs songs by Tom Petty, The Knack, Joe Cocker and more. Up next, though, is a Skokie Idol Winners concert.
Located a block from my home, Wednesdays on the Green is a great place for a perfectly relaxing and entertaining evening. If I ever get really lazy, I can also listen to the music from the comfort of my balcony.
