Garden Vibes 2013

Wednesday, June 12                  The Campbell Brothers           

Debuting their latest album, Beyond The 4 Walls, The Campbell Brothers present a rich variety from their African-American Holiness-Pentecostal repertoire with the growling, wailing, shouting, swinging, and singing voice of the steel guitar. www.campbellbrothers.com 

Wednesday, July 17                   NRBQ

Expect the unexpected from one of the most endearing and enduring rock & roll bands of all-time. This skilled combo has been delivering heart-stopping live music since 1967. www.nrbq.com                                             

Wednesday, August 14             The Ifs

The Ifs incorporate the looks and sounds of the early British Invasion, with a few twists—rich four-part harmonies, slashing guitars, and playful drums. www.theifs.com

The gates open at 5 p.m. we encourage you to bring blankets and/or chairs and your own picnic fixings, or purchase concessions on-site from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Abbott’s Frozen Custard, and Eastman House Café.
