Uptown Friday Adds Night With Slap ‘N’ Tickle
Slap 'N' Tickle kicked off the 2019 Uptown Friday Nights season just a few weeks ago. If you remember, the weather wasn't good. It was cold and rainy, and people that braved the elements were huddled around each other just trying to stay warm. It wasn't much fun.
So when the McGrath Amphitheatre suddenly had a date open, the Cedar Rapids Jaycees decided to give the band a redo. They're booked for a headlining show next Friday, June 7th.
Cedar Rapids Jaycee Beth Cavalier told me, "They're a great band and they always bring a huge crowd. The weather was miserable a few weeks ago. When the date opened, we wanted to give them another shot to pack the amphitheater!"
I spoke with Curt Burgess, singer and one of the guitar players for the band. He said, "We love the Jaycees and we love Uptown Friday Nights. It's an honor for us to play again, and we're hoping for better weather. We want ALL of our fans to come out and enjoy a great night of music."
Tickets are just $5 and can be purchased at the door. Gates open at 5:30 show starts at 6.
