August 10 – 2nd Street Stage 7-9 p.m. (after Water Wars)
Soul / Funk / Blues / Rock
Urban Dictionary defines “The Whips” as “The feeling of intense groove; not too far but just enough to touch your toes and get to movin’. Batteries are included.” The Whips have found the funk/soul you’ve been missing all this time and are here at your doorstep to return it to you. The Kansas City based band consists of four core members and a rotating door of musicians who collaborate with the band. The core members are Max Indiveri running the funk on guitar; Max Cooper laying down the best keys you ever did hear; Quinn Cosgrove, the Golden Retriever of bass; and Miles Patterson on drums keeping the Patterson Shuffle so deep in the pocket you could sleep in it. So look no further because the CEOs of Midwestern funk have arrived and run on premium. Major sponsors are Monika’s Quilt and Yarn Shop, R.D. Offutt Farms and TruStar Federal Credit Union. Band sponsor August 10 is the Park Rapids Chamber and Convention & Visitors Bureau. Arrive at 5 for the social hour, sponsored by Edward Jones Investments, and remember to bring your own chair.
