September 20th 12South Concert Series
Terrific lineup to play Sevier Park free concert
Swan Dive 6pm
The duo of Bill DeMain and Molly Felder draw inspiration from their favorite music – The Beatles, Bossa Nova, 70s soul – and make it into something that’s familiar and fresh, timeless and tuneful. Billboard calls them “melodic, uplifting and romantic,” and MOJO Magazine says, “Their songs are an imaginative line in classic pop.”
Jonny Kaplan & the Lazy Stars 7pm
With their fourth album Sparkle and Shine, Jonny and the Lazy Stars have created an innovative and engaging collection of American rock numbers that open the artist into a new era of his musical career. The end result is a striking group of songs that draw from Americana, country, and folk, recalling musicians like Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Ray LaMontagne, The Band and Gram Parsons.
DeRobert and the Half-Truths 8pm
The Half-Truths got their start in 2007 as a collection of studio musicians lending their talent to the fledgling G.E.D. Soul recording operation. It was with the addition of DeRobert Adams and his impressive broad range of vocal skills that the band began to solidify into the soul powerhouse it is today. After releasing a string of heavy duty raw funk 45′s and a strong full length album, the band has caught the ear of funk and soul heads world wide. With the release of their five song 7 inch the “Beg Me” EP in July, the DeRobert & The Half-Truths’ sound continues to grow with
loads of heavy funk and raw soul.
