Don’t miss Robin McNamara and The Headliner Band

Jared Rogers

The Osgood Kiwanis is proud to offer a “groovy” fundraiser concert, open to the public, on October 20, at the St. Florian Reception Center in Osgood. Robin McNamara and The Headliner Band will perform their concept rock show, “Stuck in the ’60’s,” an experience of classic rock and roll, a psychedelic light show, and dancing. The show is family friendly and proceeds benefit the many activities the Kiwanis support in and around Osgood, including children’s programs at Jac-Cen-Del schools and Riley Hospital.

Get your tickets now to see this band in concert and have a great time supporting your local Kiwanis. The doors will open at 7 p.m. with the show beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance (sold at Four Seasons in Osgood) or $30 at the door - St. Florian Reception Center in Osgood.

Robin, raised in Newton, MA, is known for his Top 10 Billboard Charts hit, “Lay a little lovin’ on me,” produced with Jeff Barry in New York City. “The song was released in 1969, and it was a summer hit in 1970,” Robin reminisces. During the same time period, he played the lead role of Claude on the broadway classic, Hair.

The Headliner Band, who plays over 70 live shows per year, hooked up with Robin after a chance meeting at a show in Columbus, IN. “They blew me away,” Robin says of the group.

“We’re grateful for every show,” says keyboardist and vocalist Michael Henderson. Jerry White plays bass and offers lead vocals; Kenny Strong, guitar and vocals; and Bobby Toon rounds out the crew on drums and vocals. “We love playing together,” Jerry says. The band members have several decades of performing and touring experience between them, but they still thrive off the energy of each new performance.

The “Stuck in the ’60’s” experience plays both original music and hits from the era. Henderson concludes, “Support your local Kiwanis, support live music, and come to the show!”
