Legend Puncher, Dogmatics play ParkFest Tuesday at Robe-Ann

Sunday, June 19, 2016

ParkFest will have a decidedly local feel this Tuesday at Greencastle's Robe-Ann Park, with a pair of bands featuring talent drawn from the DePauw community or Greencastle natives.

Legend Puncher and The Dogmatics will share the bill from 6:30-8 p.m.

The free concert will take place, as always, in the Bob Flanigan Bandshell.

Legend Puncher, an early alternative and indie-infused cover band, consists of Rich Martoglio on guitar and vocals, Daniel Gurnon on guitar and vocals, Jonathan Nichols-Pethik on drums and Matt Cummings following up on bass.

Missing the sounds of the late '80s Seattle scene, Legend Puncher brings songs by The Replacements, The Clash, Wilco and Bob Mould to Parkfest.

The Dogmatics is a new band of veteran Greencastle musicians -- Veronica Pejril on keyboards, Rick Provine on drums, Steve Michael on guitar, Bill Hamm on bass, Heather Sloan on marimbas and vibes, Julianna Goldsmith on vocals and Istvan Csicsery-Ronay on acoustic guitar.

Their repertoire is all original music penned by Csicsery-Ronay, in styles that range from honky-tonk to soul to blues.

The band describes the music as "righteous rocking soulbilly."

As always, Anthony's New York Style Pizzeria will be on hand as the ParkFest food vendor.

Other upcoming ParkFest shows, sponsored by the Greencastle Civic League, include:

June 28 -- Mike Balka and Blues Side Up.

July 5 -- Fret Set, Covered Bridge Harmony and The Syds.

July 12 -- Ryan Young, Mongrel Dogs and Saturday Shoes.
