We’d like to invite all of you to come to Waterfront Park on Labor Day weekend for Marina Fest. The waterfront setting is beautiful, food and drinks will abound, there’ll be good company, there’ll be all kinds of activities for young and old to partake in, including bouncy houses, kids activities, a vintage boat show, a used book sale, an arts & crafts sale and a farmer’s market, and in addition to that some totally awesome bands will be performing throughout the holiday weekend. There’ll also be a fantastic fireworks display on Saturday night!!! DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT????
As you can see, from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. on Labor Day there will be a performance by Gibraltar’s very own “STICK BAG”. The band is comprised of four kids that met in the friendly confines of the Gibraltar High School band room – Bryon Finell, Solomon Lindenberg, Dexter Daubner and Sten Kordon. The guys decided to attempt to “pick and pluck some strings”, “push some keys”, and “hit some skins”, and unanimously decided, “That sounds pretty good.” Many ask, why the name Stick Bag? Well, once upon a time an unnamed band entered a talent show, and prior to going on stage the drummer, Sten Kordon, exclaimed, “Damn, I forgot my stick bag in the car.”, and, basically “the rest is history”.
When not “jamming out”, the guys enjoy boat rides, practical jokes, mowing the lawn, driving, astrophysics, driving vans, sarcasm, and of course; doing homework. . .
Bryon, Solomon, Dexter and Sten would love to see all of you in the audience on Labor Day!!!!
