Hundreds of people attended the final summer concert of the season at Temple City Park last Wednesday evening.
With warm temperatures and a little relief from the smoke of the Station Fire, the popular band The Answer kept spirits high and feet tapping.
Many immediately got up to dance to the band which devoted the evening to supporting the troops. The Stars and Stripes attire went one step further with the drummer’s Ludwig drums being decorated in the colors and stars of Old Glory.
During the entertaining show, the band jettisons free t-shirts and other goodies into the audience via something that resembles a surface to air missile (albeit a lot less lethal). The audience screams and hollers for the prizes which fly every couple of songs. One young woman immediately donned a T-shirt with the band’s logo on it.
A group of seniors, known as the ‘Corrupt Group’ was also in attendance. Not all of the regular Corrupt Members were there Wednesday evening, however a fair contingent was present. The ‘corrupts’ is a group of widowers who meet up for friendship and social outings in Arcadia, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, Pasadena and Temple City.
Of the hundreds who attended this final concert, those who seemed to enjoy it the most were those who got up and danced to just about every song the band played. From County to Rock n Roll,
The Answer ironically posed the audience a few questions during the show but always in charge of their audience.
Sponsored by Temple City annually, the 12 concert series will resume next July 2010.
