Tow Away Zone concert | Letter

The Tow Away Zone or TAZ, as they are more commonly known, will entertain the gathering at the Village Green with their musical blending of traditional with irreverence, editorializing with nostalgia, and slapstick with serenity at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 27. Should be a fun afternoon for both performers and audience. Guitarist, Carl Burger offers his own forms of quirkiness with Orcas Island-based co-conspirators, Tish Knapp, an ice tea drinking, watermelon eating southern belle, and Marj Franke, a red-headed massage therapist with a voice and stage presence like Ethel Merman. All three have decades-long histories here on the Island but have only been a trio for two years, still learning, still experimenting and having fun. So bring a picnic and join fellow fun-seekers on Sunday afternoon.
