Turner Center Continues Music in the Art Park Concert Series

Concert pays tribute to the late Jim Sineath and The Hot Grease Band

The Turner Center for the Arts will host The Hot Grease Band for a Music in the Park Summer Concert, on Friday, July 10, from 7-9 p.m., in the Art Park located at 605 N. Patterson Street.

Sponsored by Mackey Lumber, the live concert pays tribute to the late Jim Sineath by bringing together the band he created and performed with from 2008-2014. Band members Jerry Newman, Chip Tanner, David Rodock and Bill Vendemo will perform several originals from their earlier days, as well as a mix of local favorites and all-time classic party music.

Community members are invited to bring their picnics, blankets or chairs to this free community concert, and relax in the park while safely distancing and enjoying the music. On site vendors are Rico’s Taco Truck and Jessie’s Catering (beverages), or patrons may choose to carry out from several downtown restaurants or bring their own culinary favorites.

The Music in the Park concerts will continue on the second Friday of every month through November, from 7-9 p.m., and feature local favorite musicians. The concerts are free to the public, thanks to local business sponsorships.

On Friday, August 14—same time, same place—The Dabbit Trio, sponsored by IPG Incorporated, will perform for the community.
