The WonderCult

Nearly 800 people came downtown Saturday night for a Music on the Bricks mini-festival, featuring hometown performers who have moved up to bigger things.

North Platte High graduates Tami Gosnell and Jareb Liewer are now professional musicians in California and former quarter-finalists on American Idol.

Simple Story bandleader Tom Gosnell and guitar player Luke Raby live on the Front Range in Colorado. Brandon Raby and Jason Evans are business owners in North Platte.

Gregg Todd, the drummer for Innocent Mischief, spearheaded the sound crew and pitched in on percussion too.

The WonderCult, an emerging North Platte rock band, was impressive.  

Together and separately, they entertained the outdoor crowd on Dewey St. for more than five hours.

Despite high humidity, there were relatively few complaints and no significant trouble. Six vendors sold food and beverages, including craft beer by Pals. Children played games -- ring tosses, a fun jump, rock painting and bean bag toss.

The show was sponsored by Kwik Stop, Original Town, the North Platte Bulletin, the Espresso Shop, the Do It Center and a core of volunteers, including members of North Platte’s Noon Rotary, Kid’s Klub and the Children’s Museum.  

One of the most prevalent comments was, “We should have this kind of thing more often.”
