"BUILDING A HOME FOR THE ARTS IN THE HEART OF GALVA"


For the second year, Galva Arts Council and concert promoter John Taylor are hosting the Levitt AMP Galva Concert Series, a FREE ten week summer concert series held in Wiley Park and sponsored by the 
http://levitt.org with funding coming mainly through business and private contributions in our community.
Galva's Wiley Park provides the perfect backdrop for an evening of music for one to get up and dance or sit back and relax.  Kids can run free with two modern sets of playground equipment and swings.  The space also features a well maintained basketball court, picnic shelter and full restroom facilities.  Add to this a wide variety of growing and mature trees and it's easy to see why this is a magical, shady atmosphere to enjoy excellent music!

Stay tuned for our artist announcement rollout!

Every Friday on HOG Country 102.5 at about 8AM, we will announce two of the twenty artists that will perform at the 2019 Music Series.  Our first week features The Ragbirds and The 4onthefloor. 
The Ragbirds are a genre-bending hybrid of indie-pop melodies, global rhythms and songwriting styles influenced from all over the world — was as broad as their audience, which stretched from the group’s hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan, to the shores of Osaka, Japan (where they scored a Number One pop hot with the song “Book of Matches”). Show by show, in venues ranging from rock clubs and performing arts centers to festivals encompassing everything from bluegrass to electronica, The Ragbirds developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most dynamic, high-spirited live bands in roots music.
         The 4onthefloor
bring their well-oiled, high-octane, rock’n’roll to the world with an immediacy rarely seen on stage in the 21st century. The furious delivery ebbs and flows with sing-a-long anthems and breakdowns to soaring guitar solos and unbridled full-bore rock. Camaraderie is a common theme, and stompers are finding like-minded rock’n’rollers at every show.  Hailing from Minnesota, they take the heavy road route, grooving in the tracks of so many rubber to the road musicians before them. Following in the footsteps of some of the band’s influences, being on the road plays a large role in the writing. The merriment must come from all angles, including the stage for a memorable show and the 4onthefloor BRING IT. Douglas writes about experiences, failures, successes, and not-so-much the what-could-have-beens. Life is for the living and this is the soundtrack to a life well-lived. Keep the fire in your eyes.
