On Thursday, August 11 at 7 PM, we welcome back Mr. Myers Band by popular request! Mr. Myers plays "Caribbean Rock"- a mixture of reggae, soca/calypso, beach music, and their own originals. In the band's 40-year history they have played thousands of shows ranging from clubs to festivals and park districts to corporate and private events.
Try the Grayslake Historical Society’s old-fashioned corn shelling machine, and you can even take a bag of corn home with you.
