The hard-rocking Irish roots band Get Up Jack will appear at the Upper Delaware River Valley’s first-ever drive-in concert on July 11.
The concert will take place 7:30 p.m. at the Milford Health parking lot, 111 East Catharine Street across the street from the Milford Theatre. The suggested donation is $20 - cash only - per car.
A Celtic Radio Favorite
Although band leaders John Haggerty and Mike DeAngelis have performed together for decades, Get Up Jack plays with the high spirits of 20somethings. Celtic Radio named one of the sextet’s albums, Alive and Well, Vol. 1, Album of the Year, and “The Spanish Lady” won a Traditional Song of the Year award.
Get Up Jack is not one of those combos whose every song sounds similar, in part because the musicians are so versatile. Haggerty, for example, is a wiz on four different instruments: the octave mandolin, guitar, banjo, and accordion. What’s also striking about this band’s sound is its rich and complex harmonies; all six members of the band are strong singers.
Keeping Concert-Goers Safe
Admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Only people in vehicles may enter the lot. Attendees who want to get out of their cars must stand near their vehicles and wear masks. Alcohol is not permitted, and concert-goers must take their trash with them.
