Justin Ploof and the Throwbacks Bring American Bandstand to Lake George [VIDEO]
ST. CLOUD - If you missed American Bandstand: The 60's Dance Party then you're in luck. Justin Ploof & The Throwbacks will be performing that show tonight at Summertime by George. Ploof says they're bringing the best of American Bandstand to Lake George. The performance includes music from Dion, Bobby Vee, The Beach Boys, The Young Rascals, and more. Ploof added the show was very popular, and the band is looking forward to performing at Lake George for their second year.
I think it's a combination of a lot of things. Really, truly the St. Cloud community, and their support for groups like us, and just live music and live family events like Summertime by George was probably the biggest thing. The people that put on Summertime by George are just phenomenal to work with. We got the great bandstand right at Lake George, and of course the city has done such a great job with that area, and again just beautiful summer nights with the St. Cloud skyline as a backdrop. It really doesn't get any better than that.
Justin Ploof and the Throwbacks hit the stage at 6:30 p.m. Ploof says tonight's performance includes many local faces including Dan Ploof, Jason Ploof, Aaron Barthel, Ray Jorgensen, Dr. Terry Vermillion, and Matt Mulley. Opening tonight's concert will be Goodnight Roxy, an original rock band based here in St. Cloud. Members include Adam Herron, Travis Colgrove, Jim Caron, and Anthony Perry. The band started when Perry added the electric influence of Herron and Colgrove to his own acoustic songs. Goodnight Roxy hits the stage starting at 5 p.m.
