July 16, 2019Experience Music Fridays In The City

If you attended last month’s Music Friday, you were treated to the band Trash Juice as they played their blend of jazz, funk, and rock (which they call “Jarunk”) on stage at Binns Park. Trash Juice was one of three signature concerts at Binns Park this summer during Music Fridays, which take place on the third Friday of every month. 

The next Music Friday is this Friday, July 19th and will feature the band All Systems Go, a pop punk band from Delran, NJ. The band has played roughly 50 shows with much more in store for their local and regional audiences. Their sound is often described as “pop punk music with rock & roll vibes”; a combination of Green Day and Cheap Trick. 

The following Music Friday, on August 16th, will feature the band Fierce. They are a local band from Lancaster, PA who play their own original songs, as well as a mix of Rock, Blues, and the hits of yesterday and today! Fierce describe themselves as “Lancaster’s Premier All Girl Band!” 

The final Music Friday for the summer takes place on September 20th and will be the Young Musicians Showcase hosted by J3 Music Studios, Music for Everyone, and the Lancaster Office of Promotion. As the name suggests, it spotlights young musicians between the ages of 12-19 years old. If you or someone you know is interested in in auditioning for the young musicians showcase, an audition spot can be reserved at www.j3musicstudios.com. Auditions will be held Sunday, July 21st from 12 to 4pm.
