June 25, 2013 - OPENING DAY!! We will be having a kids planting ceremony on this day, along with many other activities. Channel 3 featuring Scot Haney with Better Connecticut will be there. We will have a ribbon cutting ceremony for From The Ground Up. Our featured band will be Harmonic Rewalk. The band, Harmonic Rewalk, is composed of four rising seniors named Sam Kyzivat (lead singer, violin, ukulele), Ryan Riley (drums, harmonica, back-up vocals), David McDonald (bass guitar), and Nick Bredice (guitar). We play almost entirely acoustic rock, and we tend to emulate the Dave Matthews Band and similar artists such as John Mayer, Barefoot Truth, and even some older groups such as the Beach Boys, the Beatles, and Billy Joel. Although we cover many Dave Matthews Band songs (and the other artists mentioned), we have several original tunes that demonstrate our unique style, which although is similar to that of our favorite band, has some jazz, reggae, and standard rock elements that produce the particular sound of Harmonic Rewalk. Mike Webster will also be there to do a cooking demo.
