Beloved Folk Rock Artists Here September 20
Boley and Finck Return to Shawnee
Get ready to engage your 70’s and 80’s rock ‘n roll karma as Perry County treasures Boley and Finck return to Shawnee on Saturday evening, September 20 for a 3-hour performance at the Tecumseh Commons (we checked, no OSU or OU football games that evening to distract)! The folk rock duo’s musical offerings cross the decades since the 1970’s with roots in the music of the Eagles and CNY&N that seamlessly branches off into a variety of pleasingly diverse selections from the baby boom to millennial generations.
The early days of the Tecumseh Theater restoration project date back to the 70’s when a group a optimistic young 20-somethings in Perry County saved the building from wrecking ball via a variety of fund-raising musical events that helped put a roof on the building, replace dozens of broken windows, and clean up the debris from over a decade of water damage. Shawnee’s Concerts in The Park was the anchor of these events. Staged from the gazebo in Shawnee’s Saltlick Twp. Park on summer Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons beginning in 1977, Mike Boley and Steve Finck were among the regulars. From those early days the duo has launched a successful music career, becoming a regular staple on the Columbus, Ohio music scene while never forgetting their southeastern Ohio roots making periodic trips “down home” for signature events.
