Milltown Park has been a work in progress way too long. The citizens know it, and so do those in governing positions with the town.
In February, the Pelahatchie Board of Aldermen took steps to get construction at Milltown Park on track again.
On Saturday, April 1, the Town of Pelahatchie will host a concert to benefit Milltown Park. The event “Milltown Crossing,” is a family-friendly free concert at the Pelahatchie Town Center. The show begins at 6 p.m.
The Crooked Creek Band will headline the concert. The concert also features The Jerry and Jack Duo and The Jeanes.
John Toney, whose stage name is Jack Beal, is spear heading the event. He said the benefit concert would be a two-hour show of great Americana music. An acoustic array of familiar American roots music, which includes bluegrass, country, folk, and blues.
“Admission to “Milltown Crossing” is free.” Toney said. “But we are asking for donations to fund improvements to Milltown Park. All donations will be gratefully accepted.”
Toney offered brief biographies of the bands that will be giving of their time to support the Town of Pelahatchie in their efforts to get Milltown Park up and running to its full potential.
Members of Crooked Creek are Jerry Brooks, Bryan Hayes, Richard Pharr, and Wes Tabor. They are all professional musicians with over a century of performance experience among them. Crooked Creek dishes out tight acoustic instrumentals seasoned with a “just right” blend of smooth vocal harmonies. The members’ backgrounds include nearly every musical genre resulting in a repertoire that includes bluegrass, blues, rock, funk, jazz and country as well as original tunes.
Jerry Brooks and Jack Beal (John Toney) make up “The Jerry and Jack Duo”. Jerry is a multi-instrumentalist and extraordinary banjo player. He is an accomplished singer/songwriter/producer having recorded many original songs.
Bassist Jack Beal divides his time between Rankin County and Nashville as a writer for Bass Frontiers Magazine. Jack has shared the stage with Joe Diffie, Diamond Rio, Terri Clark and Toby Keith among others
