LIVE MUSIC AT CALLIOPE VILLAGE WITH JERRY AND THE WASHTUB BAND
September 4, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
New for Labor Day MONDAY 2017! Live Music at Historic Calliope Village from 2-5 with Jerry and the Washtub Bank. This band was put together from members who have played at Lallys cafe on Tuesday nights in LeMars for the last 6-7 years.
Jerry was asked by the Historical Society if he would put a a group together that would perform at Calliope Village on Labor Day.
“We are happy to oblige! We all like to play country/bluegrass/gospel music.”
Jerry started out with a harmonic and an old washtub for a bass when he was about 72; all the other players are experienced musicians. It shows that playing music can go well into the later years.
The members of the band are from LeMars, Sioux City, and Hawarden.
