Oregon City to sing the blues

July 24, 2012 by  

This Thursday, July 26, the Concerts in the Park Series will be presenting Franco Paletta and The Stingers in Carnegie Park located at 606 John Adams Street in Oregon City. This concert will begin 6:30pm and run until 8:30pm.

Oregon City is presenting this exciting blues group as part of its Concerts in the Park Series. Having first broke into the Portland music scene back in the mid-80s, Franco Paletta has since become one of the mainstay performers when it comes to pleasing the city’s blues fans.

Visitors will probably want to jump out of their seats and dance, although they are more likely to be tapping their toes and snapping their fingers to the great beats and tunes. Holding its influences within many renowned musicians, including Paul Butterfield, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter Jacobs, Kim Wilson, Rod Piazza, and a great collection of other legendary performers and groups, the performance should entertain everybody.

In 2010, The Stingers released two CDs called ‘Can’t Kick Love’ and ‘Baby Won’t Let Me Ride’, which was followed by a new video release in 2011 called ‘I Can’t Stand It’. ‘Can’t Kick Love’ was selected as the Best NW Recording in 2012 by the Cascade Blues Association.

Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to promote this blues group and the Concert in the Park series to the residents. Admission to this event is free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please visit the Oregon City website or call the Parks and Recreation department.
