The Concert on the Green
Concert on the Green – Line-up (times listed are approximate and line-up may change)
SPECIAL INTEREST is a cover rock, R&B and blues experience, vocally led by the high-octane Chris Farnum and the soulful Katie Ijams. They lead stylized arrangements driven by the tasty guitar work of Peter Kellison and powered by an insanely tight rhythm section — Nick Louizos on bass and Chris Mowrer on drums. As seasoned players who have played a seriously wide range of events for over a decade, these five musicians know music drives the show, but performance drives the crowd. They leave any audience wanting more.
One Eyed Rhyno
