The first concert on June 14th features The Fast Clydes. One of the earliest styles of rock and roll music, rockabilly found its roots in the south during the mid 1950s. The Fast Clydes mix elements of rock, jump blues, boogie woogie and western swing to form driving, danceable rhythms. This style of music was made popular by artists such as Carl Perkins, Johnny Burnette, Gene Vincent, Wanda Jackson and a young Elvis Presley.

The Friends of Vander Veer non-profit organization is pleased to partner with The Family Credit Union and Davenport Parks and Recreation to offer these concerts free-of-charge.
