Local residents can enjoy two parties at the park at Hazelwood’s Truman Park, 7029 Howdershell Road, during the month of June. They can boogie down to St. Louis’ #1 funk and disco band, Boogie Chyld, on Sat., June 14, at 7 p.m. The second concert features Music Box on Sat., June 28, at 7 p.m.
Members of Boogie Chyld have the style, class, but most importantly, the skills as seasoned musicians to put on a power-driven show that motivates audience members to get up out of their seats and shake their groove thang. What makes Boogie Chyld the best in live entertainment is their blend of funk, dance, soul, rock and jazz, as well as their unique way of getting the crowd caught up in their music. They have played at local venues such as Venice Cafe, Harry’s Opus Room, Mount Pleasant Winery, and the list goes on and on.
The Music Box headlines the show at Truman Park on Sat., June 28, starting at 7 p.m. This high-energy variety dance band performs everything from classic Rat Pack to Motown. Led by two dynamic lead vocalists and one of the hottest horn sections around, Music Box is backed with seven of St. Louis’ most seasoned professionals. They are dedicated to playing the songs that audiences love to hear.
Both of these summer outdoor concerts are free and open to the public. Truman Park offers a beautiful setting with a luscious green hillside in front of a newly built gazebo. A pond and water fountain provide a relaxing back drop. Audience members are welcome to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets and refreshments. However, no glass containers are allowed. Parking space is available. Residents living near the park are encouraged to walk over and enjoy this free outdoor entertainment. In case of rain, the concerts will be held at the Hazelwood Community Center, 1186 Teson Road, in White Birch Park.
