Cold Shot brings its eclectic mix of pop, R&B and rock ‘n roll to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday, Aug. 28.
Cold Shot — Tim “T-Bone” Wilbur, drums; Richard Urbino, bass, support instruments and vocals; and René Martucci, guitar and vocals — is a Picnic in the Park favorite whose music includes iconic covers and catchy original tunes in an energetic show designed to get the audience on their feet. Music starts at 5 p.m. and is sponsored by Davis Food Co-op.
Recently, Cold Shot has played at the Almond Festival, Birch Lane Spring Fling, Sugar Mill Wine and Cheese Fair, Winter Hawk Winery, Sundstrom Hill Winery and the fourth annual Painter’s Paradise. All three band members are teachers who work with students of all ages. Urbino and Wilbur teach at Watermelon Music, and Martucci teaches at Merryhill School.
The market is open from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday. Summer season is in full swing with plenty of melons, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, greens, corn, avocados, tomatoes, peppers and strawberries plus local eggs, honey, wine, beef and lamb. Crafts are at the north end of Central Park, near Fourth and C streets.
Bring a picnic from home or buy dinner from one of the many vendors. Davis Soroptimists will pour Sudwerk beer and local wine, with proceeds going to local charities.
Children’s entertainment includes Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting, pony rides by Greenwich Acres and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
