Groovin’ in the Park ,the Deltaville Maritime Museum’s casual, outdoor, concert series will continue this coming Saturday August 1st with a “Special Performance” presentation featuring “Good Shot Judy” with openers the “Honeywind Bluegrass Boys”. The “Bluegrass Boys “ begin at 5pm, “GSJ” onstage at 6. We have gotten confirmation from both groups. This concert is partially sponsored by Hawkins Boat Brokerage in Deltaville. Gates open at 4pm.
Following the Phase III restrictions, and, to limit cash handling, the event will go to an all ticket or online purchase entry and purchase system. Separate tickets for food and drink tickets will also be sold at the event for the same reason.
This show requires a “Special Performance” ticket.
From “Good Shot Judy’s website: “Good Shot Judy” is Virginia’s premier “Big” band specializing in delivering top-notch Classic Vocals and recreating the classic nightclub entertainment feel of Las Vegas in its prime. Think Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Count Basie, glitz and glamour. Real entertainment from an era that was not only filled with great singers, performers, and great songs, but whose legacy has become synonymous with great entertainment.
Possessing a large repertoire of classic swingin’ big band hits, “Good Shot Judy” is also equally adept at delivering classic ballads, and cocktail music. From the swingin’ sounds of Sinatra, Basie, and contemporaries like Michael Buble, and Harry Connick Jr., to the beautiful ballads of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and back to the high energy Latin Dance big band sound, Good Shot Judy has got you covered! Let’s swing!
The hard driving bluegrass of the Honeywind Bluegrass Boys takes the stage at 5pm. Led by
Mann Milby on Guitar and Vocals, they have been performing for 16 years out of Gloucester County with a members from Gloucester, Newport News and York.
Due to virus concerns we will limit tickets to all shows this year. This may cause sellouts. Check the website. Tickets may only be purchased online or by calling the Museum office. Unless there is a sellout you will be able to get tickets at the door from the cashiers at the Tea House. You may still purchase online using your Smartphone and showing your receipt at the gate. You will be required to have a ticket, or online receipt, and a mask to enter. We will not force anyone to wear the mask but will require everyone to have one. Spacing lines will be marked on the concert grounds and we strongly suggest you bring your own lawn chairs.
Again, to limit handling, we will have cashiers from whom you may purchase tickets for our hot dogs, bottled water, and mixed drinks. These will be our only food and drink offerings at this Groovin’. These tickets will be dropped in to a bin when redeemed so the servers do not have to handle. We are working on adding these tickets to the website so check it out.
Groovin in the Park will be rain or shine, outside only, in the Waterfront Park for the foreseeable future until restrictions for inside venues are relaxed.
Please watch this paper or our website for any changes. We will follow all Virginia Covid Regulation changes as they occur.
Next Groovin August 22 with reggae band “Stuck on a Name”.
