Randolph NJ--- The Summer Concert Series that is held at the Randolph Public Library every Monday for the rest of the summer rocked hard this past Monday with rock band No Surrender. The Concert was held in the Gazebo in the back of the Library and the area was packed with people looking for a fun show on a Monday night.
No Surrender is a band that is led by lead Guitarist Ken Kawlik and his brother Stan. The name comes from the fact that they refuse to surrender to age. They have members of the band who are over 70 years old. They started the show by saying they will play songs that everyone will recognize. The band had the whole place rocking and rolling with their versions of such classic hits as The Weight by the Band, Pink Cadillac by Bruce Springsteen and Come Together by the Beatles. The place was packed with about 140 people for the show on a humid summer evening.
Lead Singer Ken K said after the show, “It was hot and humid getting here, but once we did we had a blast.”
The summer concert series has been going on since last summer and Jill harding has been spearheading it since its inception. She said, “we usually get a great turnout and it is a great time for families and resident of the town” She also wanted to get the word out about the dining area and urge more people to come and eat before the shows.
The library also has a program room that fits about 140 people. This allows the summer concert series to be rain or shine due to the space and amount of people it can hold. The concert staff is very proud of the room and doesn’t want anyone to be deterred by bad weather since they have the space.
The concert series continues for the rest of the summer than picks back up in the fall. The next band will be the Tropy Band which is an 11 piece salsa and Latin band. That concert will be held on Monday July 20th at 7 PM.
