Thursdays on the Green: Nate Gross Band | Racing Night with Matt Janczuk

Hamilton’s Thursdays on the Green series continues Aug. 2 on the Village Green in the center of downtown Hamilton with a performance by the Nate Gross Band.

“Nate Gross is an old soul,” his bio reads. “At 35 years old, he has accomplished great success in the industry playing the styles that have been set aside as a new generation of pop music takes over our ears. The Blues. Jazz. Traditional Country. R&B. Americana. …Gross fuses these styles together like a cross country trip down route 66. From an audience of over 30,000 people at the Taste of Country Music Festival to touring up and down the east coast, Nate has played for some of the best audiences a musician could hope for.”

And we couldn’t be more excited to host him this Thursday in Hamilton! In addition to terrific performances, each night of our series is dedicated to important community service providers (teachers, first responders, health care professionals, etc.) and includes family-friendly events. This Thursday’s event theme is Racing Night with Matt Janczuk. Local Hamilton Police Sgt. Janczuk is a five-time champion and currently sits in the lead for his 6th season championship at the Utica-Rome Speedway.

Yard games will be available including: KanJam, Corn Hole, and the Ladder Game, courtesy of Parry’s General Store, as well as Giant Jenga, Yard Yahtzee and a washer toss game. This week’s special activities include making and racing balloon-powered Lego race cars, photo opportunities with Janczuk, trivia contests, giveaways and chances to win great prizes. There will be free popcorn and free snow cones provided by the Colgate Campus Safety Office.

Folks are encouraged to dine on the Village Green. Local food trucks will be present selling their specialties and local restaurants ready for you to take out something tasty. Ice cream, generously provided by Hood Dairy, will be sold for a suggested donation of $2 with 100 percent of the proceeds going to worthy non-profit organizations. This week’s proceeds will benefit the Hamilton Area Community Coalition to build a safe and healthy Hamilton by empowering youth to make positive life choices.

The evening’s concert and events are free. The rain location for this event is Hamilton’s Park United Methodist Church. Activities begin at 5:30 p.m. Music will run from 7 to 9 p.m.
