Lawn Chairs on the Square Mainstay Rocks the Crowd at Frankfort Square

COLUMBUS, Neb. – For the third straight week, classic rock took center stage at Lawn Chairs on the Square.

Rocks in a Pocket played rock and folk music covers for the hundreds in attendance in downtown Columbus.

The band has been playing an estimated 14 years, and are Lawn Chairs on the Square veterans, playing the event for at least five straight years.

“I like that you play for a lot of people, that don’t normally get to hear you. They come to this event, so new people hear you all the time,” says Joe Cockson.

“Usually an older crowd and we’re older guys so they kind of get into the old music that we’re playing,” says Steve Hurt.

The two guitar players say that their gigs pick up in the summer, playing up to five events a month. The band members, all from around the area, plan to keep performing for crowds because they cannot get enough of playing tunes.

“The music we’ve been playing in our living rooms and basements for years and so we get to bring that out,” says Hurt.

“For me the love of music and these guys sing such great harmonies,” says Cockson.

A different style of classic rock will take place next week, with a band playing hits from the British Invasion of the 1960’s.
