The Friends of the Garden City Public Library will sponsor a concert, “Just Sixties,” with songs and stories on Wednesday evening, June 17, in the Large Meeting Room. Adults are invited to attend the "Annual Meeting" of the Friends at 7:00 PM, which will be followed by the one-hour, 15 minute show and refreshments.
Break out your tie-dyed shirts and join us to relive the music, fads, culture, news, and Americana of the Sixties! Rediscover the bubblegum classics, psychedelic hits, protest songs, folk-rock, and heavy-metal thunder from groups like the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Simon & Garfunkel, the Temptations, the Monkees, Cream, Sonny & Cher, and so much more. Since their debut in 1982, Just Sixties has become the longest continually running Sixties tribute act in the USA! This narrated retrospective will include interactive trivia quizzes on toys, TV shows, newsmakers, and musical groups from the most memorable decade in music history. From "Build Me up Buttercup" to "Sweet Caroline," you’ll have fun, fun, fun; you’ll be glad all over; and we’ll be happy together!
Garden City residents will be given priority by presenting their GCPL cards at the program-room door. Non-residents will be accommodated on a space-available basis 10 minutes before showtime. No saved seats. Limited parking. No tickets are required.
