Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Other Information:

Green Flamingos started in 2012, when siblings JL and Annie Friesen first began playing music together.

Green Flamingos play what they refer to as "acoustified rock, and pseudo-electrified folk." Consisting primarily of guitar, cajon, and vocals, with upright bass here and there, The Green Flamingos play many different varieties of music, from classic rock and oldies to current rock and pop, from classic country to folk and Americana. By taking familiar songs and transforming them into a distinct acoustic-americana style, along with young ears, The Green Flamingos are perfect for an audience of any age.

In 2015, after cycling through a host of talented, but temporary, musicians, a third official bend member was introduced. With talented and creative members, Green Flamingos are an acoustic trio that's hard to beat!
