The Jumboree Players In Town For Two Shows

Reader Blanko Dave wrote in to tell me about two shows that The Jumboree Players will be performing in Phoenixville. The first will be held on Friday, June 6th at EarthMart. The show starts at 6:30 and will go until at least 9:30. The second will be held Sunday, August 3rd at the Colonial Theatre. Showtime for that one starts at 1pm and will go until ~ 2pm at which time the Colonial will be showing Easy Rider.

Blanko Dave describes the shows as such:
---
The band is The Jumboree Players. It's a musical collective, more or less. We are a band from South Philly that has about 15 members, and we play many styles of music... rock, pop, blues, country, jazz, and soul, on many different instruments.

For the EarthMart show it will be 6:30 to around 9:30, possibly later depending on the crowd. The show will be primarily acoustic instruments.

For The Colonial Theatre, the band will play an hour of electric late-60's music starting at 1:00, and the movie Easy Rider gets shown at 2:00 (it's the Sunday Classic that day).

Dave also sent a review from a show they did last year which can be read here.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
