Kellogg Park concerts continue

The popular Music in the Air free weekly concert series will continue at 7 p.m. tomorrow, July 29, and continue through Sept. 3 at the Kellogg Park stage in downtown Plymouth, officials from the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) office said.

The concerts are sponsored by the DDA; the Bank of Ann Arbor; the Plymouth Noon Rotary Club and Hines Park Lincoln.

The line-up this year again includes various area bands and tomorrow, Lady Sunshine & the X Band  (Detroit's' own - Emotion, Fire, Pride, and Soul) will perform.

Born on a plantation near the Mississippi Delta in West Helena Arkansas, Lady Sunshine grew up singing gospel music as a little girl.

She moved to Ann Arbor in 1975 and began performing professionally in genres such as Blues, R&B, Gospel, Soul & Jazz. Although Sunshine lives in the heartland of the University of Michigan Wolverines, the chants of 'Let's Go Blue' take on a whole different meaning for her.

The Rhythm Section includes ("Slick") Rick Humesky on guitar, Antonio "The Groove Boy" Jacobs on drums, Matt Macchiarolo on bass, and Patrick "Tricky Fingers" Little on keyboards.  The "Xsatiable Horns" are Patricio Padilla and Tim "Topkat" Kalvitis. 

Next week, on Aug. 5--Larry Lee and the Back in the Day Band  (Funk, R&B, Motown) is scheduled; Aug. 12--Geff Phillips and Friends  (Pop & Rock Variety 60s); Aug. 19   Moxie Blitz  (80s - Today Pop); Aug. 26--Steve King and the Dittilies  (Wayne Newton of Wayne County) and Sept.  2--Atomic Radio (Top 40, Pop Hip-Hop, Rock).
