Join us for another summer of music and fun during our 2018 Summer Concert Series. We have a wonderful new lineup of bands of all different styles and sounds. Concerts in the park typically run from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, but seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Arrive early to grab your spot, play some games, and enjoy a peaceful picnic in the shade. No matter where you sit, in the beautiful meadow or on the back porch, you’ll always have a great view of the bands on stage. No picnic would be complete without an ice cold drink, but we have you covered. A rotating selection of craft beers chosen specifically for the evening’s show will be available for our adult concert-goers as well as cold waters and sodas. If you prefer to plan ahead, please feel free to bring your own - outside food and drink are welcome.
Introducing the band:
North Florida’s own, Heather Gillis, is the complete package as a guitarist, lap steel player, songwriter, singer and arranger. She and her band have the stage presence and confidence to appeal to a variety of musical tastes be it rock, soul, jazz, roots or gospel. At 21 years old, Heather has not only formed a following at a local level, but has played alongside and befriended members of the Allman Brothers, Col Bruce Hampton, Matt Schofield, North Mississippi All-Stars, Aquarium Rescue Unit, The Word, The Lee Boys and many more. In addition to the performances with her band, Heather is a fulltime member of (Allman Brothers drummer) Butch Trucks’ current band “Butch Trucks and the Freight Train Band”. Heather’s live shows are energetic and consist of her original music as well as unique covers of rock, soul, and roots music.
