The Buckinghams Rocked the Annual Bolingbrook Jubilee 2014

It's a great feeling to play for a crowd of people in your hometown who will drive from all over the city to watch you play. The annual Village of Bolingbrook Jubilee was held last weekend and on Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014. The Buckinghams headlined the event weekend as they have in the past few years in the Illinois village known for how to put on a great party for its residents each year.

It was also the weekend closest to The Buckinghams' lead singer Carl Giammarese's birthday (August 21) so Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar brought out a cake with a few candles on it and presented it to Carl before the concert began.

Thanks to Joni Cohen, you can enjoy these great pictures of a night to remember.
