Kool Whip to perform free concert
Kool Whip will perform at the Red Willow Arts Coalition free concert on Thursday, June 26 at 7 p.m. on the lawn at the Douglas County Courthouse in Alexandria.
Kool Whip consists of four young men, Bill Gillies, Jim Luneman, Dan Purdue and Dave Parsch, who have been playing together since 1999.
A new, lighter version of Whiplash, the group concentrates on progressive folk and rock, an attempt to appeal to a wider audience.
Banjo, mandolin and various percussive instruments have been added to the mix.
Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. In the event of inclement weather, listen to KXRA 1490 AM for cancellation information.
The Red Willow Arts Coalition is a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide the community with access to more musical experiences.
This activity is funded in part by a grant from the Lake Region Arts Council with McKnight Foundation funding.
The series sponsors are Anderson Funeral Home and Elden’s Fresh Foods. The nightly sponsor is LifeStage Wealth Management, Loren and Katherine Liesmeyer.
