Petey Hop & The Jackrabbits To Play At Pawling’s “Music By The Lake” On July 22


On Saturday, July 22, the Pawling Music By The Lake Summer Concert Series will present a free concert featuring the band “Petey Hop & The Jackrabbits”.

Making their 4th appearance at Music By The Lake this season, “Petey Hop & The JackRabbits” are a jumpin’, jivin’, swinging four piece band built for a good time. Bandleader/guitarist Pete “Petey Hop” Hopkinson is a seasoned veteran who has performed extensively at  Hudson Valley venues, including Daryl’s House and The Town Crier, as well as opening for well-known bluesman Robert Cray at the Ridgefield Playhouse.

Playing a variety of music from Hank to Hendrix, Duke to Dylan, Bach to Buck, Son House to Son Volt, or Muddy to Miles; from T-Bone through Stevie Ray, with some early country blues thrown in as well – whether a hard swing, deep pocket shuffle, funky backbeat or slow burner, The Jackrabbits lay it down.

Music By The Lake concerts are held on Saturdays at 6:00pm at the Pavilion at Lakeside Park. In case of inclement weather, the concerts will be held in the adjoining Lathrop building. As always, all concerts are FREE!

So bring your picnic baskets, coolers, blankets and folding chairs and join us on July 22nd at 6pm to enjoy rockin’ roots, blues, and old school country music with “Petey Hop & The Jackrabbits”.
