It's a warm summer evening, and the terraced, grassy shore of Lake Bennett is covered with lawn chairs and blankets. Audience members who are still arriving walk from nearby neighborhoods. The volunteer public access television crew is in place, as are the volunteer musicians behind the red and white stands in the band shell. At the cue from the television floor director, the band leader gives the countoff for Rock Around the Clock. As the band softens down during the first chorus, he addresses the audience:
"Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to Roseville's beautiful Central Park. My name is Glen Newton, and we are the Roseville Big Band!"
Another Roseville Big Band Concert in the Park has begun.
