Grizzly Goat brings Americana sound to Farmington Hills park

Traveling from Utah to Michigan for the first time, Grizzly Goat will perform at the next Stars in the Park concert on Thursday, July 11.

The free, 7 p.m. event will be held at the Heritage Park amphitheater, 24915 Farmington Road in Farmington Hills.

The five musicians in this Americana band play guitar, banjo, bass, drums, and harmonica, and each of the members plays at least three instruments. The concert will feature several original songs about what they love most – hiking, nature, geography, fishing, and playing music.

“In simple terms, we play folk rock music,” lead singer Nate Waggoner said. “”We play traditional American instruments blended with rock and roll. During the early days of the band, we were more punk rock with some bluegrass influences. A grizzly goat is a wild animal, and it just makes sense.”

The first winner of the Mercedes-Benz Financial Services raffle drawing for the use of a Mercedes-Benz for one week will be announced at the July 11 concert. Attendees (21 years or older with a valid U.S. driver’s license) may enter by visiting the Mercedes-Benz Financial Services vehicle display.

Show cancellation or location change announcements will be made no later than 5 p.m. on the day of the concert; call the Cultural Arts hotline at 248-473-1848.
