THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Berndt Music Program Aug. 3
Issue Date: June 6, 2019
Bob Berndt invites the public to attend the " Sounds of the Decades" music fest on Saturday, Aug. 3rd at Crivitz Community Veterans Park in Crivitz. Berndt has been involved with music in the Crivitz area for over 40 years, both as an instructor, as well as a performer.
The event will start with the performance of "Eddie's Crew", named after a band member and a dear friend of the entire community, Ed Osten. Gordy Jacobs and Pete Swanson, a former student of Berndt, have carried on with the band in Osten's name and will be rocking the park with good old classic country and rock tunes.
The next band is a nine piece 50's and 60's Rock and Roll extravaganza titled "Peace with Grease", and formed in the early 70's at Carroll College. It went on to be one of the premier bands in the Milwaukee area.
Following "Peace with Grease" will be a reunion of "Daze Revue", a poplar area band that was formed in 1983 and performed through the 90's. They cover songs through the 80's and 90's. The final band to perform will be "Daze 2 Nights", whose musicians combine generations that played with or listened to "Daze Revue".
Proceeds will go toward construction of a permanent band shell in the park, adding to the tremendous fundraising efforts of the Red, White & Music festival held on Memorial Day weekend and Oktoberfest in the fall each year.
