Other members include Dave Watts on drums, Joey Porter on keyboards, Garrett Sayers on bass, Ryan Jalbert on guitar, Parris Fleming on trumpet and Drew Sayers on saxophone.

The first show of this year's Free Summer Concert Series will kickoff June 30, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Concerts beginning with an opening band, followed by the main act.
