The next musical act will be “Mothers Finest” on Friday, July 22. Mother's Finest has been described as a pioneering American funk rock band who’s music is a blend of funky rhythms, heavy rock guitars and expressive soul/R&B-style vocals. Their lively music and engaging performance is sure to entertain attendees of all ages.
Finally, “The Shadowboxers” close out the concert season on Sept. 24. The group is an American pop band formed in Atlanta, Georgia. The Shadowboxers’ musical approach comes out of a shared reverence for the sacred texts of rock and soul, from the Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel to Stevie Wonder and D’Angelo. According to www.NashvilleScene.com
they have the Tennessee town buzzing, thanks to their champions including “include the Indigo Girls, Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton and Memphis-bred buddy Justin Timberlake.”
