The Buckinghams Set to Play Havana, Illinois, Spring Fling This Weekend


From a story in the Pekin Daily Times by Tara Mattimoe, The Buckinghams are to be the featured attraction for the Spring Fling Saturday, April 24th in Havana, IL. The event is presented by the Havana Chamber of Commerce, with primary sponsor Havana National Bank, and includes an antique and custom car show.

Mattimoe's story notes:

"The event’s main attraction lies in the featured band, The Buckinghams, said Chamber of Commerce board member, and Havana’s Economic Development Coordinator, Terry Svob.
“The chamber has never put on an event with someone of this stature,” Svob said of the band. Getting The Buckinghams into Havana is quite a coup for the community, he said, and the group will hopefully bring in a sizable crowd — particularly from the baby boomers both in and out of town."

...

"Hippie Radio out of Peoria and Cool Radio out of Springfield will both conduct live feeds during the afternoon, Svob said. There will be food and snack booths available during the car show and concert, and The Buckinghams will have a souvenir booth as well."
