BROWN BAG: Josh Madden
Welcome back to fun with the Fall Brown Bag Concert Series! Come join us at noon each Wednesday in October for a free outdoor performance featuring a sampler of our area’s eclectic musical talent and tastes. The show is at Monroe’s lush green Palace Park at 220 DeSiard Street (beside the old Palace Dept. Store location) with public parking at 4th and Desiard. In case of rain, we’ll move indoors to the old Palace Dept. store, next door to the park. Bring a picnic or just grab a $5 box lunch on site from Newk’s. Mulhearn’s will again provide free cookies, and we’ll provide water and lemonade to keep you cool! Picnic blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged! Of course, the performances are FREE, thanks to our sponsors Attorney John Bruscato-Bruscato Law Firm, City of Monroe, Mulhearn’s, Newk’s, the Palace, Rain the Salon & Day Spa, and Jim Taylor Buick GMC.
An accomplished professional musician and busy music teacher, Josh Madden has been performing at Monroe-area venues and events for almost two decades. And yes, he’s also host of KEDM Public Radio’s “The Set List,” on Saturdays from 6 to 9 pm. Today he takes the stage with an appearance flavored by his eclectic musical influences, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, and Elton John on the piano, and Eric Clapton, and Dave Matthews on guitar. Come on down and bask in some warm rays and cool tunes as we rock the Series and season!
