The 2019 PCB Summer Concert Series Lineup
June 6 The New Respects (High Energy Rock & Soul)
Hailing from Nashville, these three siblings and their cousin perform a high-energy take on throwback rock ‘n’ roll peppered with blues and soul and synchronized for maximum blend and pop effect.
June 13 – Good Enough For Good Times (New Orleans Funk)
Performing a New Orleans Funk style, the band formed due to the lack of musicians in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Local club owners needed performers to fill their empty stages for the New Orleans’ folks who came home after the storm and needed to hear some good music to get their minds off all that was going on around them. They were a hit and haven’t stopped since!
June 20 – The Lee Boys (Sacred Steel)
One of America’s finest “sacred steel” ensembles, this family group consists of three brothers, Alvin Lee (guitar), Derrick Lee and Keith Lee (vocals) along with their nephews, Alvin Cordy Jr. (7-string bass), Earl Walker (drums) and Roosevelt Collier (Pedal Steel). Their music is rooted in gospel infused with rhythm and blues, jazz, rock, funk, hip-hop, country and African driven by the pedal steel guitar.
