Wally & the Beaves at Port Plaza

by Kelli Samson for OLY ARTS

Pull your poodle skirts and saddle shoes out of the closet and get ready for an old-fashioned sock hop to celebrate the golden age of rock. This event will be at the Port Plaza as part of Olympia’s Music in the Park. The 90-minute concert will open with Danny Vernon, a world-famous Elvis impersonator. Following Vernon is our region’s costumed go-to for golden oldies since 2011, Wally & the Beaves. Wally & the Beaves comprises Osama Afifi, David Christensen, Mark Devos, Wayne Ledbetter, Randy Linder, Wade Reeves, Danny Vernon and Keely Whitney with frequent guest musicians. Fans are encouraged to show up in their ’50s and ’60s attire, ready to hit the dance floor. “Our fans are like family,” shares Ledbetter. Get there early.
