Tavern nights are back
Sept. 9 was filled with music and conversation at the Wolf Academy building, part of Governor Wolf Historical Society’s campus, for its return of tavern nights.
After a long shutdown and social distancing, the historical society, located at 6600 Jacksonville Road, East Allen Township, has decided to resume tavern nights at the building. Kicking off this season of entertainment was the Bedlam Blues Band, a Lehigh Valley blues/rock band, featuring an assortment of classic blues and vintage rock favorites.
Lead singer and frontman Grant Jardine describes the band as “modern-day interpreters of classic American blues styles. The band faithfully recreates different blues genres, such as Delta, Texas, Chicago and more.”
Governor Wolf Historical Society was formed in 1958 when the Wolf Academy was up for sale. Community members, led by Elias W. Spengler, organized and incorporated in the interest of “acquisition, renovation, restoring, furnishing and maintaining this historic site.”
Currently, an all-volunteer society focuses on fundraising and educational endeavors to continue the ongoing use of this property.
Tavern nights will continue 7-10 p.m. the second Friday of each month, with the next set for Oct. 14. The events are BYOB, with soft drinks and snacks provided.
Doors open 6:30 p.m. There is a cost. You must be at least 21 years old to attend.
Historical society members, guests and interested community members are encouraged to check out more information on the tavern nights and future events at govwolf.org.
