The Nostalgics, Lancaster Ohio’s 18-piece big dance band, was formed more than 24 years ago as an offshoot of the Olivedale Senior Center Concert band, now known as the Lancaster Community Band. In addition to the band’s popular bi-monthly dance night at Olivedale, the band plays at area dance halls for those who like to dance to the ballads and rhythms of live music. Proud to be a unique community resource, this swinging musical ensemble has performed at many Lancaster and Fairfield County venues.
Program starts at 7:00 P.m. Bring a chair, bring a friend and join us at the Bandstand in Downtown Lancaster.

Paul Thorn has been pleasing crowds for years with his muscular brand of roots music: bluesy, rocking, and thoroughly southern, yet also speaking universal truths. The Tupelo, Mississippi native worked in a furniture factory, jumped out of airplanes, and was a professional boxer before sharing his experiences with the world as a singer-songwriter. As a boxer, Thorn once fought against Roberto Duran and as a musician, he has toured and collaborated with Sting, Paul Carrack, Joe Diffie, Tanya Tucker, Ronnie Milsap, and Carole King to name a scant few.
