ZUMBROTA — Return to the music of singer/songwriters Simon & Garfunkel, hearing favorites such as "Mr. Tamborine Man" and "America" sung by the Ultrasonic Duo. On the Crossings stage 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4.
This highly professional duo features acoustic and electric favorites from the '60s till now. Don and Greg play an easy listening mix of rock, reggae, old country, folk, alternative, original tunes and surf music. Known for their harmonies, the Ultrasonic Duo takes pride on tight and smooth vocals. This is listening music, which is never overpowering or loud.
Don D. Harvey adds lead vocals, harmonies, acoustic guitar, and harmonica while Greg Grokowsky plays acoustic, electric and twelve string guitar in addition to adding lead and background vocals. Grokowsky is a master of the surf music genre of the '50s and '60s in the guitar styles of Dick Dale and the Ventures.
Harvey and Grokowsky taught school together for many years and often talked about music. They attended a Roger McGuinn concert together and realized they both were quite influenced by McGuinn and the Byrds.
Grokowsky plays the same style Rickenbacker 12-string guitar that Roger plays ... and in fact, McGuinn graciously signed Grokowsky's Rickenbacker in Red Wing at a concert in 2010.
