June 9, 2012 by Sarah
On Thursday, June 21st, the City of Countryside will be hosting one of its 2012 Summer Concert Series – Music through the Ages at Countryside Park located at 630 W. 61st Street, at the corner of 61st and Brainard Avenue, in Countryside, Illinois. This live performance will begin promptly at 7:00 pm.
As part of the Music through the Ages concerts, this concert will feature the Rhythm Rockets, which represents the 1940s. This musical journey began in the 1920s and will continue until the music of the present. The Rhythm Rockets are a seven piece band from the Chicago area that plays vintage music of the era using the same instrumentation with a stylish and upbeat sound. This band brings lots of energy to the stage whether it is from an original piece or an old classic, or even their own version of an obscure tune. There music appeals to audience of all ages and this is a great family event.
Rhythm Rockets’ appearance reflects swing, rhythm, and blues combined with jump, jazz, and songs that have been influenced by the sax bands of the 30s and 40s. This group is well known in the Chicago area and can often be seen at the local hot spots such as the House of Blues and numerous other venues across America. The audience will find their music infectious and will find them snapping or tapping away to the beat.
