Concert in the Park: Wally & The Beavs

 Sunday, July 22, 2018 
12:00pm-4:00pm  
Pavilion East Deck

Wally & The Beavs will return to the Pavilion East Deck from 12-4 p.m. Sunday, July 22 to provide entertainment during the Lakeside Wooden Boat Show & Plein Air Art Festival.

The band performs a variety of popular Motown and classic rock music, including cover songs by Steely Dan, The Beatles, Chicago and other respected artists.

Wally & the Beavs was created by lead singer William “Wally” Hesselschwardt who, at the time, was part of a comedy/rock group in California called The Other Half.

He has shared the stage with musical acts including Three Dog Night, The Beach Boys, Edgar Winters, Rick Derringer and Michael Stanley.

When his son was born in 1990, Hesselschwardt left the group and returned to Ohio, where he joined a rhythm and blues group to keep his voice in good shape.

In 1992, a new group was formed by Hesselschwardt and Joel Bokerman, the group’s keyboardist. It is this band that adopted the name, “Wally & The Beavs.”

Through the years, various musicians have joined and left the band, and the group has evolved to perfect its signature brassy rock sound.

Today, band members, including Shannon Ford, Nathan Santos, Joel Bokerman, AJ Tscherne, Jeff Skaggs, Bruce Burkhart and Ed Adams, join Hesselschwardt to continue the tradition of “good time rock & roll.”
