The Happy Crowd Finale!!  Moments before their final Memorial Park Show, the group opened up about their beginnings, music, their 30 year journey and what it's meant to them

The Concerts in the Park are a summer staple in Claremont, and The Happy Crowd has been one of the most beloved groups for over three decades.  On August 11, 2022, The Happy Crowd -  Hai, Smarty Marty, Collie and Kenny - graced the Memorial Park Bandshell for their final show, but were able to take a few minutes to talk to Claremont Speaks before commanding the stage and delighting the crowd...as always.
 
The Happy Crowd spoke on how they started, and what a great ride it's been ever since.  Most appreciative of Claremont - which they regard as "home" - they've loved all the enthusiasm they've received over all the years, from their first show to the last - both in the Memorial Park Bandshell.  People who saw The Happy Crowd when they were young brought their kids and grandkids for the privilege of seeing their final show.   
 
The fans had their Happy Socks on and eagerly let the Happy Crowd whisk them away.  Fans of all ages were singing along, dancing and spinning...enjoying their signature music, humor and overall upbeat and positive entertainment to the max.  In this all-too-short interview, their message of affection and gratitude towards Claremont and their fans still comes through with crystal clarity, and this would be the show they would remember for the rest of their lives.
