Newton, NC – The Catawba County Library System is inviting all ages to a family friendly end of Summer Rock Concert on Thursday, August 4th at 6:30 pm at the Main Library in Newton. Bring a picnic and chairs to the community reading garden for an evening of music and fun with Big Bang Boom!

Established in 2007 out of Greensboro, North Carolina, Big Bang Boom is 3-piece power pop band consisting of talented artists and long-time musicians Chuck Folds, Steve Willard, and Eddie Walker. But this group doesn’t play just any old music.

These dynamic dads play parent-friendly children’s music! After 20 years of touring, Chuck, Steve, and Eddie decided to expand their horizons and play for parents, like themselves, who want more from children’s music.

The trio writes songs with a pop sensibility, cleverly mixing alternative, hip-hop, pop, country, and other genres to create music that parents and children can relate to and enjoy! The band describes their shows as a “kid-appropriate frat party.”

Take advantage of this opportunity to discover and explore the Library’s vegetable and flower garden, as well as the beautiful reading garden.

This summer Garden Concert is made possible with the generous support of the Catawba County Friends of the Library.
