Yesterday’s Kids at Kenosha’s “At the Shell” on August 16 | Entertainment

KENOSHA – “Tuesdays at The Shell” continues its season at Pennoyer Park band shell with a performance by Yesterday’s Children.

The free concert begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 16 in the park, on Seventh Avenue at 35th Street at Lake Kenosha.

The Kenosha Band is a horn-led group that performs classic tunes from bands such as Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, The Buckinghams and The Grass Roots.

The group was formed in 1965. Yes, 1965, and continues to entertain audiences. Although there have been breaks between performances and around 40 different members over the years, the music has remained the constant.

Original member Rich Allen – interviewed by the Kenosha News in 2016 – said the band’s first gig was playing outside the JC Penney store during Crazy Days in downtown Kenosha.

During these early years, Yesterday’s Children played throughout the region, from local gigs at the Kenosha Youth Foundation’s “Dry Dock” to performing at Summerfest in 1970.

After getting married and pursuing a career in human resources at Abbott Laboratories, Allen “got the band back together” about 15 years ago, playing in Allen’s backyard for a reunion. These backyard jam sessions eventually got the band performing again.

Members of the public should bring a lawn chair. Benches are also available in the park. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.
