“Phone Topic Tuesday” Saving Mesker Amphitheater and Your Mesker Memories!

I am co-administrator of the Facebook page Save Mesker Music Amphitheater, which right off the bat I ask you to click the link and give the page a “LIKE” and join the many of us that don’t want to see the venue mothballed or torn down.  There’s been talk of razing it and making it part of the Mesker Zoo.  I think with funding it could still be a viable venue for live music and other events.

The specs on the place are as such';  “Mesker Amphitheatre is a historic 8,500-seat amphitheater, located in Evansville, Indiana, United States. It contains 5,500 chairback seats and 3,000 lawn seats.”   So we have a place that can hold a concert crowd almost as large as the Ford Center, but it’s outdoors and that makes for an incredible experience.

I myself, through 103GBF and The Parks Department, put on 8 “Mother Mesker’s Home Made Jam” concerts in the 90’s, charging $1.03 admission to see all original, hometown bands perform like Mental Anguish, Mama Zot, Big Jon 350, Mourning Vengeanace, C.O.D and many more.  Those were the good days.   Even better were days when I saw Heart open for the Doobie Brothers in 1977, Pat Travers and Foghat, Sammy Hagar and Black Sabbath and tons more in the 80’s.  Also a few Rock Horror Picture Shows along the way.  So…today on Phone Topic Tuesday I want you to share some of the memories you’ve had at Mesker Amphitheater, and perhaps share an opinion as to what you’d like to see done with the facility.  Meanwhile…take action.  “LIKE” the Facebook page here. Contact the mayor here.  Let’s make our voices loud and undeniable!  Mesker Amphitheater doesn’t have to go out like this…
