An Evening of Funk with Chris Vipond & the Stanley Street Band and Big Fat Mallard

Date: 
Saturday, August 19, 2023 - 6:00pm

The third and final show in the Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Free Concert Series 2023: An Evening of Funk!

Chris Vipond & the Stanley Street Band represents all of the musical styles from all of the years of Chris’s musical journey. He writes songs about individuality, the creative process, love, social protest, Big Brother, disconnectedness, big dreams, and little dreams, all the while trying to speak the truth through the music. Based in Altoona, the band last appeared on our stages at the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival 2012.

Big Fat Mallard was founded during the great quarantine of 2020. BFM was created with the intention of spreading smiles and happiness across the region through use of fun, fast-paced funk music. Big Fat Mallard features an array of talented singers and horn players over a rock solid rhythm section, and is appearing on the mainstage of the Three Rivers Arts Festival this year. Known to play both originals and tasteful covers, Big Fat Mallard always brings the party.

Through a partnership with Bold Athletics, free parking is available in the lots off Walnut Street, across the street from the Train Station.
