The Filson Historical Society Presents The Monarchs
The Filson Historical Society will present a significant piece of Louisville’s own musical history when the Monarchs bring their own brand of doo-wop and harmony to Music Under the Trees, Friday, September 16, at 6:00 pm at Oxmoor Farm. Music Under the Trees is The Filson’s annual tribute to local musical history and summertime family fun.
Back by popular demand, the Monarchs are an American doo-wop band that formed in 1961 in Louisville, KY. Originally a high school band, the Monarchs soon launched into a long and successful performing and recording career, which includes touring with Dick Clark and his Caravan of Stars and working with many of the icons of the early years of rock & roll. The Monarchs have been in demand both locally and nationally, with their 1964 hit “Look Homeward Angel” going to number one in major markets and remaining on the Billboard charts for an astonishing 13 weeks.
Today, the Monarchs continue to be in demand and perform regularly with other national recording artists. Their music spans generations of fans and is a real “get out of your seat” entertainment experience.
Through Music Under the Trees, The Filson invites families, friends, and music lovers to make their own history. Participants are encouraged to pack up favorite foods and beverages – or organize a potluck – and plan to spend an entire evening at the elegant and atmospheric Oxmoor Farm for music, memories and old-fashioned fun.
