Back when writing a melody or catchy tune was celebrated, AM radio blasted the airwaves with instrumental hits into the 1990s. Then the age of electronica dawned and pop instrumental singles went the way of the floppy disk. The K-so Combo (together a small string section) authentically channel the jazz-fusion, blues, rock and funk songs without words of Santana, Booker T & the MGs, Edgar Winter, Herbie Hancock, Rush, Herb Alpert… to mention but a few. (See full playlist below). Read press release.
Admission is free. $5 contribution per person is encouraged but not required for entry at the bandshell.
Bring blankets, or lawn chairs. Food trucks will be on hand to serve up some tasty treats too! (Check the KSO’s Facebook page for which ones).
The TANK Shuttle will run from the Covington Catholic High School Park Lot to the band shell from 6:00 -7:30 p.m. and returns following the concert for $1 each way.
