Looking forward to a great deal of musical variety next weekend for 3-Day! On Friday, July 19, at Kennywood Park, the Srbija folklore ensemble of St. Sava Cathedral in Parma, Ohio, will entertain with a Serbian dance presentation.
After Kennywood closes its gates on Friday, everyone will ride on over to the American Serbian Club on the South Side to hear two terrific bands: Radost and Pobeda.
On Saturday, July 20, beginning at 11:00 a.m. there will be tailgating in the parking lot of the Gateway Clipper Fleet at Station Square. Entertainment will be by Slavlje Orchestra of Lackawanna, NY, with Petar Pajic on cello, Nick Jovonovich on bass, Milos Marjanovic on bugarija, Matthew Vranjes on brac, and Sam Korach on accordion. We welcome the return of this talented young orchestra to our tailgating party.
The Boat Ride is all about dance, dance, and dance, featuring a King and Queen of the Kolo contest. In order to support so much dancing we searched for a terrific Serbian dance band and we found one in Osvezenje Bend (Justin Greenwald, Brock Belich, Sinisa Trbovic, and Boro Daich). Come and be a part of the competition.
On Saturday evening, it’s back to the Serbian Club to hear both Sokoli and Osvezenje Bend for more good Serbian music.
The music continues on Sunday, July 21, at the annual Savez Day at the Holy Trinity Picnic Grounds. Djuro Klipa, our distinguished MC for the weekend, will be playing in the pavilion, while Radost entertains in the Dungeon.
Don’t miss the chance to hear great Serbian orchestras all weekend long!
