ROCKPORT — After two rainouts in a row, the “Music in the Park” series is making up for it with a double header this coming Sunday, August 1. This will be an eclectic mix of two performances with Grace Kemberling doing vocals and keyboard followed by The Mopes, who will be performing vintage rock and roll from from a time before when they were born.
Join Music in the Park, Sunday, August 1, at 4 p.m., in Mary Lea Park next to the Rockport Opera House for a fun, relaxing afternoon of music in the park, according to Rockport Parks Committee, in a news release.
“Bring a blanket or a chair and prepare to be entertained,” said the release.
According to Grace Kemberling, in the release:
Music has always been a place of solace for me – a place where I can process my life, express and connect to something beyond this world. Ever since I was little, the arts have been my home; writing, painting, crafting, singing, playing the piano. After two years of college my heart began to call me towards a different path. I'm now pursuing certification as a birth doula, while sinking deeper into my love of music. My style is heavily influenced by people like the Indigo Girls, the Chicks, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and Lauren Aquilina. It's a slower blend of pop with a drop of folk.
The Mopes are a classic rock band based in Rockport, with members from Florida and New York. The members are Ravi Doman (16, lead guitar), Matias Doman (14, percussion), and Cici Baro (14, bass guitar). This performance at Mary Lea Park will be their first performance in front of a live audience. Listeners can expect to hear rock and roll classics from The Beatles,Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and others.
