Lucky for You

Latin Grammy Award winners Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band are playing at the Art in the Park event on June 21 at Wesselman Nature Preserve.
For the husband and wife duo Alisha Gaddis and Lucky Diaz, it is a homecoming and an introduction to Evansville. Gaddis moved to the West Side when she was young and is a 1999 F.J. Reitz graduate.

“Actually, this is the first time we have come back to my old stomping ground for shows,” says Gaddis. “It makes it even more exciting. I can’t wait to see all my old friends from school and their new families. So many of my childhood friends, now have children of their own. It is so special that I get to share what I do with them in such a fun capacity.

“I am also truly thrilled to show my husband the town I grew up in and still cherish. Can’t wait to take him to Turoni’s and buy him some Ski.”

Art in the Park is the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana’s free, public outdoor art festival. Following the performance, there will be a meet and greet for students interested in careers in music, theatre, and performing arts. There also will be a round-table discussion with Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band earlier in the day on the importance of the arts in early childhood education.

The festival runs from noon to 6 p.m., but the event schedule has not yet been posted. Art in the Park will be followed by Art After Dark, running until 9 p.m., with performances by three regional and local bands.
