Meijer Gardens 2019 ! 

After a record crowd in 2018 for the Franklin Park / 6 Pak 60s music show, Frederik Meijer Gardens' Tuesday Evening Music Club has asked us back for a similar show in 2019.  We will again share the bill with 6 Pak on Tuesday, July 30 from 7-9 pm.  Come help us break the all time attendance record we set in 2018 with this show!

Final Gig of Year in Traverse City ! 

On the road with Franklin Park!  Our final gig of the year before winter hiatus was at Incredible Mo's in Traverse City on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters of N Michigan.  Great music in the largest bar in Traverse City area for a great organization.  Nice color touring day before show in Leelanau County too.  Beautiful!

Record Crowd at Meijer Gardens Show! 

60's music rules!  Meijer Gardens reports that the Franklin Park/6 Pak 60's music show at the August 14 Tuesday Evening Music Club was their largest crowd ever!  All the Franklin Park guys had great fun performing before 2000+ enthusiastic people.  It was definitely a WOW!

Hello World.

2018 Big Whitefish Show 

Franklin Park "Deja Vu"?  Well, we didn't play that song (it's from 1970, not the 60s!) but we were all back again at Big Whitefish Lake's annual social event, which had record attendance (due to FP show? :>) ).  Much fun in an outdoor setting on a nice evening with lots of good people.  

Meijer Gardens 2018 ! 

At its October 20 rehearsal in Holland, Franklin Park auditioned for Ted Bufkin of the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.  We were very excited to learn from Ted that the Gardens had selected Franklin Park to play in its beautiful amphitheater next summer as part of its very popular Tuesday Evening Music Club.  Hope to see many family, friends and classmates there along with the 1,000+ Gardens members that attend these shows.  Will be FUN!!!

2017 FP Show! 

With the long distance between our homes and that UP winter weather, FP has decided to do one show a year. 

Our show on June 23 for the annual Big Whitefish Lake Association event at the Whitefish Lake Golf Course's beautiful clubhouse and restaurant was attended by over 100 people, most of whom knew nearly every one of our 60's music songs.  Many highlights, including a full Beatles set of 8 songs and one encore, the first appearance of the "Franklin Park Dancers" and Mike R's great organ solo on a new song to us (and 50-years old this summer) A Whiter Shade of Pale.  Good job Mike R, and Bernie, and Jim too, with that song's seeming ever-descending bass line. 

Summary

October 2016--Just getting started with this website so we'll see if FP has enough news to have a BLOG.  Right now we are just hoping that the wild winter weather in the UP holds off beyond FP'S December 2-3 rehearsal get together so our very humble front man, Bernie R, can get downstate safely and timely.
