Cottage Event Center to host The Junk Yard Band

Posted: Friday, September 25, 2020

The Junk Yard Band, a Northeast Indiana Oldies Rock quintet known for performing music from the ’50’s and ’60s, returns to Roanoke’s Cottage Event Center on Friday, October 23. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m., and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Roanoke Police Department.

The group began playing over forty years ago rehearsing next to a salvage yard, leading to the band’s name. They have performed at the Fort Wayne Bicentennial, Three Rivers Festival, James Dean Festival, and numerous area festivals, fairs and car shows. The lineup is Rick Brown, keyboards, sax, vocals; Don Miles, drums and vocals; Dale Pequignot, lead vocals; Mike Hockaday, bass and vocals and Guy Platter, guitar and vocals.

Seating is limited due to social distancing concerns. Attendees are asked to wear a mask when entering the venue and when walking around the building. Customers are not required to wear masks when seated at their table.

Tickets cost $12 and are on sale at John’s Meat Market in Roanoke, by calling (260) 483-3508, or online at cottageeventcenter.com. A cash bar will be available as well as food for purchase including hot dogs and chips. The Cottage Event Center is owned and operated by Hamilton Hospitality Group.
