Second Wind Blows Into the First Music in the Parks Concert Wednesday June 18th.......Stay Tuned for "Live" Streaming at 7pm! The Replay is Enclosed...

Copperopolis, CA....The Calaveras Arts Council kicks off its 2008 series of free “Music in the Parks” on Wednesday, June 18, at the Copperopolis Town Square, starting at 6:30pm. If you haven’t yet visited this whole new town with a historic past, this is a good time. The free concert, the first of ten this summer in various parks of Calaveras County, will feature the seven-member “Second Wind.” Sail away with the smooth harmonies of this group from Amador County whose specialty of Doo-Wop has prompted them to subtitle their music, “Doo-Wop that Won't Stop.” The Replay is Enclosed....

Second Wind is comprised of a trio of veteran vocalists from the genres of jazz, lounge and classic rock and roll. Backed by a seasoned four-piece rhythm section including saxophone, Second Wind brings back memories of a more innocent time in history.

Boomers in the audience will recall how in the 1950’s Doo-Wop sprang from the streets and endured as a street corner pastime, until record companies discovered it making Doo-Wop an overnight success story. Remember the Ink Spots, Orioles, the Ravens, and the other early ''bird groups''? Well, Second Wind gives this music a second time-around, proving that doing Doo-Wop is doing all right. Some people might think it’s a novelty, but these are really good musicians, the music sounds great, and their vocals are “on.”

Second Wind’s vocalists include Kathleen Stark who has a background in singing Portuguese/Brazilian style jazz; Gary Crist, who initially received his vocal training with the U.S. Naval Choir, and Vern Shaw, who’s known for his 30 years of Elvis impersonation. They all now love singing the classics from the ‘50’s and responding to the audience’s adoration of Doo-Wop. The "The Dell Oros" are the jazz combo backup and include Barry Duncan who has 30 years of experience playing flute, tenor, alto and soprano saxophones in big bands, orchestras, and a variety of jazz groups; George Khokhobashvili, who has a distinguished history in playing violin and piano and is the pianist at a Mokelumne Hill church; Big John Bosch was born and raised in Placerville and graduated from El Dorado High School. As a member of the prize winning El Dorado Jazz Ensemble, Pastor of the Jackson Methodist Church; and David Stark, who is the manager, arranger, professional bass guitarist of 40 yrs and is co-owner with his son Trevor of Temple Studios and Production Jackson CA.

As with all concerts of “Music in the Parks”, bring your own low-back chairs and picnics. Take advantage of the booth of the non-profit Copperopolis Area Business Association selling beer and wine. Visit the ice cream store and the four other retailers who will be open for this evening’s concert. To reach Copperopolis Town Square, travel west for 15 minutes on Highway 4 from Angels Camp and follow the signs, turning left onto Little John Road. Signs will guide you to the parking areas. A major sponsor of this first concert of the Calaveras Arts Council’s season is Castle & Cooke, Calaveras, Inc. This is the 17th season that the Arts Council, a non-profit, public benefit corporation, has presented these popular free events. Next Wednesday’s (6/25) “Music in the Parks” will be at the Valley Springs Ballfield above the school featuring “Coyote Hill”, a quartet of lively bluegrass, folk and jazz music.
