Jim Stout is the opening act for Entertainment Under The Stars next Tuesday, July 5. Here's the official press release:
The 2011 Entertainment under the Stars Concert Series is sure to be a winner this year with four great bands ready to perform.
Kicking off the season on July 5th will be entertainer extraordinaire, Jim Stout. Jim never disappoints anyone with his great variety of music and comments. Stout brings to the series an outstanding sample of excellence in music. Jim will perform original and tried and true blues, folk and country tunes. Jim Stout is no stranger to the Coldwater community, having performed over the years all over the county. Whenever Jim performs the crowds are large and appreciative. So plan on getting there early to get a good seat. Again this year, the Branch County Association of Realtors will be providing FREE ice cream as a thank you to the community.
The July 12th concert will feature the Daybreak Trio. This group consisting of Dan and Barb Hefner and Rob Cooper has been playing and singing together for over 25 years and enjoys a wide variety of music styles. Be ready to tap your toes to such favorites as Bus Stop, I’m Into Something Good, and Run River Run. Habitat For Humanity will have a Taco Bar at the United Methodist Fellowship Hall from 5 to 7 pm.
The July 19th concert series will feature the 50s rock band - The Haskells. Band members include Shawn Petersen on guitar, Mark Budd on bass, Matt Budd on guitar and Jack Scrimger on guitar and will be performing such tried and true songs as “Johnny Be Good,” “Hello Mary Lou,” “Blue Suede Shoes” and much, much more that will be sure to get everyone in the dancing and toe-tapping mode. The United Methodist Men’s Club will be dishing up ice cream sundaes in the Fellowship Hall before the concert.
The final concert of the season on July 26th will definitely be a Grand Finale! Jim Voss and Friends will bring back music by the Shades of Gray, with original members Jim Voss, Chris Edwards, Toy Puyear and a guest appearance by vocalist Jeff McGinnis from Battle Creek. The Branch Interfaith Hospitality Network will have a hog roast prior to the concert.
New this year, Branch County Farm Bureau Farmers Care will be at each concert providing information on where our food comes from. The group will focus on the products found in the food available prior to the music. Concert goers can learn about dairy products, grains, potatoes, vegetables, meats and much more! Producers from the county will also be on hand to answer questions.
So bring your lawn chairs or blanket and come enjoy some great entertainment and food. Some chairs will be available thanks to Putnam Funeral Home.
Entertainment Under the Stars is made possible this year through the kind support of Southern Michigan Bank and Trust, Dairy Queen, Infinisource, Branch County Community Foundation and Monarch Community Bank.
