Summer Concert Series: Eight to the Bar

Drawing its musical influences from American roots music — swing, boogie-woogie, and Motown, Eight to the Bar is known for its outstanding instrumentalists and sophisticated musical and vocal arrangements, highlighted by female vocals.

With the support of independently produced CDs and videos, Eight to the Bar has cultivated a large, enthusiastic following that has put them in clubs from Maine to Miami as well as Europe and the Caribbean. Their rigorous touring schedule has included opening spots for Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Manhattan Transfer, Robert Cray, the late Roy Orbison and Ray Charles, several European tours, and most recently, a tour of the Republic of Georgia at the invitation of the U.S. Embassy located there.

Free concert Wednesday, July 17 at 6:30 p.m. Raindate is Thursday, August 18 at 6:30.
