Dan Daniels and Your No Good Buddies in Concert at the Clark July 29
For Immediate Release
July 21, 2008
Dan Daniels and Your No Good Buddies will perform on Tuesday, July 29, as the last concert in the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute’s free outdoor music series. The concert will be held at 6 pm on Clark’s expansive south lawn (picnics, blankets, and lawn chairs encouraged). The Clark’s Cafe will sell barbeque fare and the galleries will remain open until 6 pm on concert evenings. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the auditorium. Concert admission is free.
Dan Daniels and Your No Good Buddies is a group of Baby Boomers with their roots in the past and branches reaching for the future. With Dan Daniels on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Shawn Mansfield on bass and vocals, Rich Slobody on drums, Kurt Hansen on mandolin and vocals, and Dan Margolis on lead guitar and vocals, the audience will be treated to a rocking and tastefully humorous brand of good time music for all age groups. What is unique about this band raised on rock and roll and tempered by the social struggles of the ‘60s and ‘70s, is that unlike most bands in their age group they are not content to rehash the same old classic rock and oldies tunes, but are playing their own brand of Americana rock. With sounds that are familiar, but songs that are fresh, the members of Dan Daniels and Your No Good Buddies are breaking new ground for their generation.
Williamstown Savings Bank is the media sponsor for the concert series.
On view in the Clark’s main galleries through October 19 is Like Breath on Glass: Whistler, Inness, and the Art of Painting Softly. This exhibition features forty beautiful paintings by American artists who obscured their brush strokes creating paintings that, like the mist of breath’s condensation on a pane of glass, appear on the canvas without evidence of the artist’s hand.The exhibition Homer and Sargent from the Clark celebrates the opening of Stone Hill Center by highlighting twelve of the Clark’s masterpieces by Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent.
The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, MA. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August). Admission June 1 through October 31 is $12.50 for adults, free for children 18 and under, members, and students with valid ID. Admission is free November through May.
