Every Thursday in August head to the Madrona Playfield for the 2nd Annual MCC Concerts in the Park! On August 4th at 6pm look forward to Mud Junket. The six-piece band brings funky rhythms and tight harmonies to every set. Think of them as a trip to a friendly juke joint located musically someplace between New Orleans, Macon, Austin and Chicago. Kitten Patrol will be performing on August 11th at 6pm. A band of 5 young girls, ages 10-15, playing blues and soul. August 18th the local jazz vocalist, Katy Bourne will be bringing her fun loving personality to the park at 6pm. Katy and her band perform at nightspots, private functions and festivals throughout the Northwest. On August 25th at 6pm The Professors will close out the MCC Concerts for the summer. The electric blend of roots rock, alternative country, psychedelia, and rockabilly. The Professors have been molding minds since 2009 with their dance-worthy tunes from the 1960s to today. Bring a blanket and picnic dinner while enjoying these local musicians!
