The North East Chamber of Commerce welcomes the BluesBeaters for the fifth week of its Heard Concert Series on Thursday, July 22.
The BluesBeaters have been entertaining local audiences for almost 20 years, putting their own distinctive musical spin on a wide variety of material. Their performances include elements of jazz, vintage and current pop music, standards, rock & roll and country, and there is the unmistakable presence of early rhythm & blues that reveals the true influences shared by all members of this quintet.
The group covers artists such as Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, Peggy Lee, Joe Williams, Stick McGee, Chuck Berry, Horace Silver, Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Willie Dixon and Sam Cooke.
The BluesBeaters will perform at Heard Park from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. The concert is sponsored by Better Baked Foods. The Heard Park Concert series will continue every Thursday evening through August 5.
