Festival Time for The Buckinghams: Taste of Elmwood Park!

On Friday, August 6, The Buckinghams performed at the Taste of Elmwood Park! This was our first Chicagoland festival since the summer of 2019. What a magical night it was! We had a tremendous turnout!

It was so great to see so many familiar faces, fans that have supported us for years that we haven't seen in a long time.

Even our original manager Carl Bonafede showed up. It was great to introduce him on stage, Carl was responsible for our success in the early days.

Unfortunately, we had to cut our concert short due to a storm that moved in, but we were able to get in 65-70 minutes. There is always something special about playing a Chicagoland festival, the atmosphere is electric!

First I want to thank all of you for coming out and joining us. Next, thank you to the City of Elmwood Park. Murray Weiner and Jake Weiner for bringing us back after it was postponed last year because of Covid. Thank you Susan Rakis for all you do. I hope all our fans can join us again on Aug.31 when The Buckinghams play another festival for the City of Hillside. Let’s all keep rockin! Stay well and be safe!
