Chris Presley & the Mobtown Cats

Classic Rock & Roll at the Meadworks!

Join former Elvis impersonator and Baltimore rocker Chris Presley & his band The Mobtown Cats for a rockin' Saturday evening filled with your favorite classic tunes, including hits from Elvis (of course), Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, and the Rolling Stones.,

Put on your dancing shoes and get in the mood to rock!

More about Chris and the Cats:
The seeds of the group were planted 25 years ago when Chris and lead guitarist Paul January clicked right off the bat.

At first, Chris was a bit of a reluctant performer , But during a mid-1990s performance at the annual Night of 100 Elvis’ in Baltimore, music enthusiasts began to take notice.

Chris received numerous accolades and bookings following the show. Articles were written about him in Baltimore Magazine and The Washington Post. There were also local TV and radio spots followed by Internet radio exposure.

Asked to describe the Mobtown Cats’ signature sound, Chris said,” It’s Americana, early rock and roll. It’s pioneer rock -- the beginning of the big boom. Music was originally blues/gospel like a tree with so many branches.”

Through it all Chris remains focused on his calling since interest in Early Rock & Roll music never seems to waver.

College Park Day

Fast forward to the best part: “And adults will be able to grab a drink at a beer and mead garden from Denizens Brewery and Maryland Meadworks. “

Read this great Hyattsville Wire article about it…

Don’t Miss This Year’s College Park Day

Posted on September 23, 2019 by Alison Beckwith

Over the past decade, College Park Day has grown to become one of the best annual events on the Route 1 corridor for families. Now it’s gearing up for its 10th annual celebration on Saturday, October 5, from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Organized by the city and held on the grounds of the College Park Aviation Museum, the free, six-hour festival includes activities for kids of all ages.

For the younger kids, there will be multiple bouncy castles and inflatable obstacle courses, arts and crafts, face painting, ice cream and performances from Mandy the Clown, Bubble Magic and hula hooping with Joe’s Movement Emporium.

Kids who love trucks will be able to check out a city garbage truck, a front end loader and a Kubota sidewalk snow plow; fire trucks, ambulances and police cars; plus rescue and military helicopters that will fly in for the day.

Older kids can check out performances by R&B singer Funsho, a local musician best known as a contestant on “The Voice,” Baltimore cover band Fantasm and the Crush Funk Brass, among other bands; watch aerobatics from Gymkana; try out a climbing wall or get food from local vendors.

And adults will be able to grab a drink at a beer and mead garden from Denizens Brewery and Maryland Meadworks

College Park Day got its start in 2009 when a resident complained in a blog post that the city didn’t have any events to showcase residents. Two City Council members agreed, and a few hundred people attended the first College Park Day the next year.

This year’s festival is expected to draw at least 8,000 people, including some from as far away as Silver Spring, Laurel and Bethesda. Entrance to the College Park Aviation Museum, voted “the best place to take kids” in the Hyattsville Wire reader poll, will be free during College Park Day.

Free parking will be available at the College Park Metro station garage, the Wells Ice Rink and near the event site. Look for University of Maryland police to direct you towards the best parking when you arrive.

Don’t forget to bring sunscreen and bottled water.

Michelle is the Senior Director of the Migrant Rights and Justice program at the Women’s Refugee Commission, and is one of the nation’s foremost experts on US asylum protections and detention policies for migrants.

Hyattsville's Mandy Sheffer launched a one-woman postcard writing popup at Vigilante to flood Congress with handwritten demands to take kids out of cages. She will recreate her popup at the event so that participants -- including kids -- can demand justice and accountability from political leaders.

15% of all mead sales during this event will be donated to the WRC to support their efforts to Close The Camps!
