Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan will be scheduled to perform at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn on Saturday, August 25, 2012.

Performing for the past 50 years Dylan is still aweing the audience with his poetic lyrics and refreshing rhythms.

Known for his whole career, Dylan is best known for his political, philosophical, and poetic lyrics that have led to various Hall of Fame placements, awards, and even a Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.

During the social unrest from the civil war Dylan became and still is an idol to several and his anti-war songs are still being used today.

Starting out as a Jewish freshman in college in 1959 Bob Dylan has certainly made a name for himself and White River State Park is honored to have him perform for us again. Come out and enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity and enjoy the talent Dylan will shower the audience with on Saturday!

Dukes of September

Dukes of September at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park

Donald Fagen, Michael McDonald, and Boz Scaggs are bringing their talent to the  Farm  Bureau Insurance Lawn on Friday, August 24 as the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue.

This supergroup brings the jazz, blues, and soul this summer’s concert series has been needing at White River State Park. These three plan to bring back songs from their previous career as The New York Rock and Soul Revue as well as several covers they have picked up along the years.

To explain a little bit about this supergroup, Donald Fagen was the co-founder of Steely Dan alongside Walter Becker in his early career. After the two split in 1981, Fagen went through his solo career which brought him three albums and another on the way.

Michael McDonald is a 5 time Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter. His career with Steely Dan led him to another successful career in the Doobie Brothers until 1982. Along with various appearances and performances for his solo career McDonald is hard at work with the current tour.

Boz Scaggs started out in the Steve Miller Band and went on to focus on a solo career. After a small hiatus in the 1980’s he continues to record his own music and hop along this tour that will bring them all here to Indianapolis!

It wasn’t until 2010 that Fagen, McDonald, and Scaggs agreed to bring back the music and hit the road for touring after The New York Rock and Soul Revue split ways in 1993. This show will certainly bring back memories from a decade ago and refresh the audience with a variety of music.

Did you know??

Michael McDonald was hired as an additional singer in the early 1970’s tours of Steely Dan because Donald Fagen had severe stage fright.

William Royce is the actual name given to Boz Scaggs. In his early years a schoolmate gave him the nickname “Bosley” which eventually led to Boz.

Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | July 29, 2012 | www.inwhiteriver.com

Florence + the Machine at The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park

Florence + the Machine at The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park

A sold out show brought thousands of people out to the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn July 29 to experience Florence & the Machine.

The Walkmen were the perfect band to warm up the stage with upbeat songs to get the audience on their feet dancing.

Florence awed the crowd in her long flowing dress and vocals that sounded as though one was casually listening to her CD.

Some of the songs performed were Dog days are over, Shake it up, What the water gave me, and others from her newest album.

The energy provided from the band was easily seen as Florence pranced and danced onstage and even offstage throughout the crowd.

A grateful Florence even gained a small treasure box from a fan before leaving the stage.

This is the second time Florence & the Machine have joined us and we hope that next year we can be gifted with their presence again for all that missed it!

Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | July 12th, 2012 | inwhiteriver.com

After another sweltering, dry day  in Indianapolis, the sun set and the lights at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park went up for the Of A Revolution (O.A.R.) concert on July 12th. The perennial favorite for the Park brought in a huge crowd, and Team WRSP had a ton of fun with the event.

The opening act, Santa Barbara-based Rebelution, brought a reggae vibe to the Lawn and provided a great backdrop for the incoming fans as they gathered their chairs in preparation for the show. The band played songs from its new album, Peace of Mind.

When O.A.R. came on stage around 8:45, the crowd was ready to jam, and the band delivered. The band played a mix of crowd-pleasing classics like “Shattered” and “Love and Memories” coupled with high-energy songs from their newest album, King. The band also created a song for the 2012 London Olympics with rapper B.O.B. called “Champion.”

The highlight of the night for Team WRSP, however, was the encore performance, during which the band played “That Was a Crazy Game of Poker.” Audience members threw playing cards in the air to celebrate the concert.

O.A.R. formed when all of its members were in high school in Maryland and continued to grow to fame and success after the members attended Ohio State University.

The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park’s next show is British sensation Florence + The Machine on July 29th. Everyone heading out to the packed show should be sure to check out Team WRSP and WINDY for park information and a chance to win free tickets to the WRSP attractions and future shows!

Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | July 7th, 2012 | http://inwhiteriver.com

White River State Park welcomed Umphrey’s Mcgee on July 7th at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn.

To start out the night the park had  G. Love & Special Sauce, who performed a relaxing, laid-back jam session to get the crowd ready for a long night of talented artists doing what they do best.

With warm weather and a slight breeze the night brought out more and more people to the front of the stage to dance, sing, and enjoy some great tunes.

Towards the end of the night Umphrey’s Mcgee performed  “When The Levee Breaks”, a song by Led Zeppelin which everyone enjoyed and begged for more.

If you missed the concert this year make sure to check out the other artists coming to the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn!
