The Executives will perform 1960s rock and roll music in Viking Memorial Park in Spring Grove on Wednesday, July 11, as part of the Music in the Park series. The music takes place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and food will be served by the Spring Grove Athletic Boosters beginning at 6 p.m.

Formed in 1997, members of the five-piece band from La Crosse, Wis., include, shown clockwise starting at lower left: Lee Rasch – bass guitar, Roger Christians – keyboards and guitar, John LeQuesne – drummer, Tom Kelley – lead guitar, and Jeff Lokken – rhythm guitar.

Their favorite ‘60s artists are The Beatles, and songs are sung in traditional four-part harmonies, with a back-beat, authentic Gibson guitar and classic instruments. The group strives to keep rock and roll music alive and live!

In case of rain or inclement weather, music and food will be moved to the Fest Building.
