Devou Park Band Shell, Covington, KY 

Admission is free, contributions encouraged.

Nostalgia is always reflected in fashion, pop music, hairstyles, cars and furnishings, but nothing zaps folks back in time like the television programs of their youth. The KSO pulls out TV themes from the 1950s through 1990s (heavy on the ‘60-70s).  Following intermission, the KSO re-lives the age of Saturday morning cartoons with themes from the Rocky and Bullwinkle to the Animaniacs. The evening ends with The Pink Panther, Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry.


Seniors and others who wish to avoid crowds are invited to attend the Saturday 10:00 a.m. dress rehearsal.

A TANK Shuttle Bus will depart every half hour from Covington Catholic High School(CCHS) on Dixie Highway starting at 6 p.m through 7:30 p.m., for $1 each way.  Chairs and coolers are allowed on buses.  At the end of the program, shuttle buses await to return immediately to the CCHS parking lot.

There is no admission charge for this concert. However, we encourage and appreciate contributions of $5 per person. Your generosity keeps the music playing!
