As of Saturday morning at 9:30 am, it looks like it will be partly cloudy and cool, with a slight chance of rain early. We'll keep an eye on it as the concert approaches, so check back to see if we'll be indoors or outdoors.
Looking like a "room temperature evening" for the concert, with minimal breezes. Comfy!
If things don't change pretty dramatically, we'll be outdoors. Yay! (But check back closer to the event to make sure.)

Carl also performed and recorded with Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer, Van McCoy, and many more. In State College, he has played with the Nittany Valley Symphony, the Pennsylvania Centre Orchestra, the Altoona Symphony Orchestra, and was a member of Urban Fusion.
Fronted by accomplished violinist Carl Ector, The ROTEC GROUP plays Latin, Funk, Jazz, and Pop music. They also perform originals by members and unique arrangements of “Old Skool” tunes from the 70's.

For a sample of their music, see the bottom of the band's page on our Moonstock Concerts website.
Our home at 211 Moondance Lane is only about 15 minutes from downtown State Don't be misled by the Port Matilda address.
For guests with mobility issues, we can reserve parking. We have modified the road down to the stage, so on nights with outdoor concerts we can allow a few cars to drive down, drop passengers, and park on the edge of the woods. Call Kyle at 814-404-1313 to make arrangements for people with mobility issues.
Can't beat an outdoor concert on a rain-free summer evening.
There are three homes on Moondance Lane, and Google hasn't figured us out quite yet. Our home is the one AT THE TOP OF THE HILL, so as you drive up Moondance Lane, take the uphill path at each of the two forks. (That's right at the first fork, then left at the second fork.)
If you get lost, call Kyle's cell phone number, 814-404-1313, and hope he can hear you over the music. (-:
