George Bedard and The Ark are excited to announce that on Saturday, August 29, 2020 they will be streaming a live “Best of George Bedard and the Kingpins” show from The Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan as part as the Ark Family Room Series. This 90-minute show will include blues, rockabilly, swing, surf, and rock-n-roll favorites and will feature as special guest, the great Mark “Mr. B” Braun on piano. They will also be doing a tribute to the late rock-n-roll pioneer “Little Richard” Penniman. “It’ll be a little strange and we will miss a live audience” says Bedard. “But we’re thrilled to have this chance to play together again. Thanks so much to The Ark for this opportunity.”
This performance will stream live via The Ark’s Facebook page and YouTube channel. Please check The Ark website for the live link at showtime. The concert will run from 8:00pm – 9:30pm. The show is free to stream, but the band and The Ark will count on donations during the live performance to make this happen. Proceeds will be split between artists and venue.
George Bedard ‘s History of American Music Series Vol. 8 “Jump Blues” has been rescheduled for August 28, 2021. Tickets for that show, live and in person at The Ark, will go on sale this Friday, August 21, at 10am. For Tickets visit www.theark.org.
