Rocking the night away

EDITORS NOTE: Since this article went to press, the City of Colusa has cancelled its summer concert series for the rest of 2020.

The band Township takes to Memorial Park’s outdoor stage in Colusa on Thursday as locals relax in the warm summer evening, dining on street tacos from the VFW.

After the Farmer’s Market on Thursday at Colusa’s Memorial Park, people start carrying lawn chairs and blankets for a free concert as the sun sets on another summer day. The acoustic sounds of Township serenade residents as they try to regain a sense of the familiar feelings of previous years.

“We still want some normalcy in our life and we’re working together as a community to try to make that happen,” said resident Jennifer Diaz.

Every other Thursday, a rotating display of talent hits the outdoor stage while smells of food on a hot grill fill the evening air. The VFW 2441 sold out of 20 pounds of meat: customer’s choice of carne asada or Chaz Franklin’s award winning Chicken Teriyaki tacos.

“It’s not about how much (money) you make,” said VFW member Dennis Sanders. “It’s about serving the community.”

Township played until after the sun went down, laughing about technical difficulties and playing their signature “Watermelon Crawl” along with classic rock covers. Guitarist Casey Doss said that they were happy to be playing after months of cancelled gigs.

Coming up next on July 23 will be Frankie and the Fablestones. Kaylee Star will play on Aug. 6 and Book ‘em Dano take the stage on Aug. 20.
