It’s winding down to the last blasts of summer and it’s time for hot weather music, reggae and coming to the waterfront at Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park on Saturday, August 25, for the Groovin’ in the Park casual outdoor concert series.

Reggae band “Stuck on a Name” will perform from 6-8 p.m. The band is two-time “Favorite Band” nominee in the Virginia Reggae Awards. These guys also won the Best Band category in the 2016, 2017 & 2018 Rivah Visitor’s Guide competitions.

Our own local musicians, the “Tobie Gillie Trio” with Roger Carrol will open for Stuck On A Name from 5-6 p.m. Gates open at 4 p.m.

The monthly Holly Point Market will run that same day from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Working out of Urbanna, Stuck On A Name is a reggae/ska band with a loyal following. They play originals as well as covering classic favorites from these genres (and more), sometimes with a reggae/ska twist. Influences for the band are, among others, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley and “Sublime.” Close your eyes and you’re in the islands, mon!

Stuck on a Name members are Drew Luffey, guitar, lead vocals; Joe Gaskins, guitar, vocals; Jonny Brinkley, bass guitar; Josh Wright, drums; Chris Henley, saxophone, vocals; and D’Andre Paige, keyboards.

Groovin’ in the Park is the maritime park’s “bring your own lawn chair, cold beverages, and picnic” casual concert series held in Waterfront Park. Some chairs and tables are available in the Gary Waterfront Pavilion on a first come-first served basis. Some metal folding chairs are also available if you can’t bring yours. For those who don’t have time to pack a picnic, hot dogs, barbecue, specials, and bottled water will be available next to the Tea House. Marty will bring his famous flavored Swine Skins and Smoothie Steve will be on hand with your favorite frozen mixer.

The 2018 Groovin’ season is sponsored by Sonabank. Thanks Sonabank!
