Gig in the Park: The Connells

FREE concert at the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park in Historic Downtown Wilson. THE GIG IN THE PARK CONCERT SERIES HAS MOVED TO THURSDAY EVENINGS FOR 2019!

The Connells are an American band from Raleigh, North Carolina. They play a guitar-oriented, melodic, jangle pop style of rock music with introspective lyrics that reflect the American South. The band is best known for their song "'74–'75", which became a UK Top 20 hit in 1995, making them quite popular in Europe at the time.
The Connells were the first band to headline a concert at Raleigh's Walnut Creek amphitheater in 1991, and on June 4, 2010, were the first band to headline the Red Hat Amphitheater in downtown Raleigh.

The Gig in the Park spring concert series offers something for everyone with a blend of musical genres including classic rock, rhythm and blues, bluegrass/new grass, tribute bands and more! Beginning in mid-April, the five-concert series runs every other Thursday evening through early June. The Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park features wonderful amenities including a lush green, performance stage, large multi-purpose shade shelter, plentiful picnic tables and, of course, the mesmerizing whirligigs.
