The Township of Lower will host a special concert that will benefit the youth of the community on Tuesday, August 1, 2023 at Freeman Douglass Park from 7:30 to 10 p.m. The concert will feature the Amish Outlaws. Mayor Frank Sippel explained that the fundraiser will benefit the Children’s Benefit Fund, specifically funding youth recreation programs, including helping a child that wanted to participate in the various programs but couldn’t afford the necessary equipment or supplementing recreation registration fees for a family in need. The event will feature raffles for gift baskets and prizes graciously donated by local organizations and businesses. All raffle ticket sales will also go toward the fundraising effort for the Children’s Benefit Fund. Food trucks will be available for concessions.
There is no typical Amish Outlaws show, but the average crowd can expect to see men in full Amish garb releasing all of their pent-up energy with an infectious joy. With a set that is always evolving as the Brothers discover more and more music and culture, The Amish Outlaws constantly surprise the audience and keep them guessing as to what they could possibly play next, from Johnny Cash to Jay Z, Lady Gaga to Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, Bon Jovi to Elvis Presley, The Foo Fighters to Dropkick Murphys, to theme songs from the TV shows they have come to know.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Freeman Douglass Park, located at 676 Route 9. Guests can attend the concert after stopping at National Night Out, held within walking distance at Lower Cape May Regional High School. Concert goers are invited to bring beach chairs, blankets, family and friends and enjoy an evening of live music. Parking and admission is free.
Funding has been made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts / Department of State, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Cape May County Board of County Commissioners through the Cape May County Division of Culture & Heritage.
