Del Rey with The Green Planet Band at the Minstrel
April 19, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$10 – $12
Those who attended our 2018 Spring Getaway will long remember the bravura performance they saw by Del Rey. She hits the stage like a miniature tornado with blues, ragtime, jug band, and novelty numbers played on steel guitar and ukulele. Her instrumental prowess approaches, but does not quite cross the borderline of being flashy. And it’s all delivered with a twinkle in the eye, and a sense of humor that’s a cross between Will Rogers and Monty Python. The woman is a pistol! The Green Planet Band is a family band comprised of siblings Kylee (13), Tyler (10), and Anna (10), along with Mama Lisa. It started with an elementary school talent show, and has grown to be a credible semi-professional folk-rock act with strong vocals by the kids and lead guitar work from Mama. They do music by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Journey, Neil Diamond, Buddy Holly, Linda Ronstadt, Elvis Costello, and others, and have been a big hit at numerous Folk Project and other local events. Free parking; wheelchair accessible.
