Indian Creek Nature Center presents Concerts at the Creek, featuring City Park and Dr. Z’s Experiment on Saturday, June 15.

DOORS OPEN at 6:00pm prior to the 7:00pm show.

Based out of the Iowa City area, CITY PARK are a group of life-long, like-minded musicians who had mostly sacrificed their craft over the years to the usual responsibilities of life.  In 2017, fate brought them together to form a group called KINGBOLT for fun and to play some of their favorite tunes. Ultimately, in mid-2018, the band name changed to CITY PARK.

Influenced by bands like Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, Ryan Adams, Dawes, Avett Brothers, Black Keys, and more, CITY PARK has evolved their unique sound into rich, foot-stomping, mining-the-depths, hootenanny music with heart. Though hard to pin down, their sound can be best described as a fusion of roots/Americana/alt-country/rock/blues.

City Park plays a helluva live show steeped in high energy, audience sing-a-longs and storytelling and has played all over Eastern Iowa –– clubs, bars, theaters, festivals –– and always draw a vibrant and energetic crowd.

Over the last year or more, CITY PARK started working on original material and their debut album Analog Space Camp will be released in coming weeks.

Formed in 1998, Dr. Z’s Experiment began as a jazz trio at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, IA. They have since grown to become a 5 piece Fusion/Rock/Jazz/Reggae/Funk/Experimental group. Dr. Z’s Experiment is known for their blistering live performances – and more specifically for their improvisational jams that seamlessly transition between songs and genres.
