Franklin Park was formed in 1968 as a sort of all star band from the Holland High School class of 1969.  Franklin Park won the local Battle of the Bands in 1969 and performed in the state competition. Its last performance was at Macatawa Bay Yacht Club in the Summer of '69, whereafter the band went on to college and to life.
 
Except for a rehearsal reunion circa 1970 (see pic on "Music" page), Franklin Park did not play again until 5 of its six original members reunited to play at the HHS69 class reunion in 2010.  Well-received then, the band reunited for performances in 2011 and 2014 (when HHS69 classmate Mike J joined) and 2016, 2017 and 2018.
