The last weekend of Music on the Green  – the free summer concert series brought to you by The Mariposa County Arts Council and its many fine sponsors – at The Art Park in historic, downtown Mariposa, CA will feature two of the best: Good Medicine on Friday, August 26, and The Roger Perry Band on Saturday, August 27, 2017.

Good Medicine 1Good Medicine on Friday, August 26

Good Medicine was a favorite band of Cousin Jack (the late minstrel/impresario that Music on the Green is dedicated to) and have played 25 of the 26 seasons of Music on the Green; their appearances, an annual tradition. Their music, described as “folk-a-delic,” has a distinct California sound, mixing original songs with select, deep cut covers, and entertaining audiences from the foothills to the coast for more than twenty-six years. Frank and Deb Sipes (the core duo) each have an impressive musical pedigree (more on their web-site, Facebook, and Reverbnation pages) as performers and recording artists, and will be performing with their full band. This performance will include "The Full Dose", Kevin McHatten on drums, Jeffrey Hallock on amplified harmonica and Music on the Green Producer, Ronnie Sweeting on guitar, adding more electrified dynamics and extended improvisation to the group’s eclectic repertoire. All this topped with Deb’s famous rendition of “Amazing Grace” in the Cherokee language.

Roger PerryThe Roger Perry Band on Saturday, August 27

Influenced by disparate music styles such as, rock, blues, real country, reggae, poly-rhythmic jazz and folk, and by various artists – from Leonard Cohen to John Coltrane, Miles Davis to Frank Zappa, and including Elvis, Johnny Cash and Mike Nesmith - Fresno music icon, Roger Perry, is difficult to categorize, but wildly entertaining nonetheless. With a moving singing voice likened to Roy Orbison and the natural guitar playing skills of Glen Campbell, Perry is a formidable talent on his own, performing solo. Surrounded by the experienced professionals – known regionally, nationally, and internationally – that fill out his band, make for an even more powerhouse performance. Learn more about this award winning Central Valley/Coastal artist on his Facebook music page.   

All performances begin at 7:00 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) at the Mariposa County Art Park, located on Hwy. 140, between 4th and 5th Streets, in historic downtown Mariposa, CA. Free parking on 5th Street along the Creek Walkway to the Park, also providing handicapped access.

The shows are free to the public – tips for the performers will be solicited, encouraged, and appreciated.
