Music on Chocolate returns to Downtown Hershey

Join us this Saturday for July’s Music on Chocolate as we welcome Hockersville Station and Hexbelt to the stage! 

Hockersville Station is a six piece band from Hershey, Pa. Like Frankenstein, Hockersville Station was formed from the good parts of other bands to create a semi-scary, but lovable entity. The band has its own distinct sound thanks to the vocals and guitar of Mike Gingrich and the classical-influenced violin from Lina Yang, but still leans heavy on the Alt-Country influences of Jason Isbell, The Jayhawks, The Old 97’s and The Decemberists. We can’t wait for this interesting and eclectic mash-up to take the stage.

Hexbelt will headline the evening. As a band, Hexbelt has the ability to cut across political, social, and economic boundaries to reach the masses. A peer in a crowd at a Hexbelt show would reveal a cross section of society, with baby boomers, neo-hippies, punks, blue collars, yuppies and the like; all jamming together as one. Hexbelt truly is a unique band in an age of increasingly generic modern music.

Grab the kids, a blanket or chair, and prepare for a night of good times and great music. Tröegs Independent Brewing will be selling craft beer and Olivero’s Vineyard will have wine by the glass available for purchase. Lucky Penny Burger Company will be onsite selling their Honest Abe burger, buffalo fries, and other selections, and Philip Arthur’s will have their ice cream cart onsite. Stop by the DHA tent to purchase water or for a free Hershey bar, while supplies last. Dogs are welcome at our events, as long as they bring their responsible pet owners with them. See you Saturday at ChocolateTown Square Park!
