Next, on Saturday, March 25, come see the Charlie Morris Band. You will enjoy energetic and laid back original tunes which are a blend of Blues, Country and Florida Swamp Music.
On Friday, March 31, Chuck Brodsky will use his acoustic guitar and voice to tell stories of oddball and underdog characters. His songs celebrate goodness in people.
