Posted on Tue, Sep 4, 2012 : 11:14 a.m. Summer Concert Series wraps up this week with Dr. Mike & the Sea Monkeys

By Staff

The Summer Concert series wraps up this week with the humorous music of Dr. Mike & the Sea Monkeys.

Dr. Mike and the Sea Monkeys are a folk and acoustic blues trio consisting of Mike Ball, Scott Clauser, and noted advice columnist "Dr. Mike." Since Dr. Mike is a fictional character from Ball's nationally syndicated humor column What I've Learned... So Far, he never really shows up for rehearsals or gigs, which means that the Sea Monkeys are actually a two-man trio.

Most of their music is original, based on and the books "What I've Learned... So Far Part I: Bikes, Docks & Slush Nuggets" and "What I've Learned... So Far Part II: Angels, Chimps & Tater Mitts" by Erma Bombeck award-winning humorist Mike Ball.

Dr. Mike & the Sea Monkeys will play at noon Friday, Sept. 7 on the patio of the Community Space at 301 E. Liberty Street, at Fifth Avenue. The Summer Concert Series continues at noon Fridays throughout the season; check out the website for more information.
