EVENT: Sundays in the Park Concert Series

DATE: Sunday, August 27, 2017

The Leawood Arts Council will again host a Concert Series each Sunday evening, August 13th through September 3rd. The concerts will be held at the Ironwoods Amphitheater in Ironwoods Park at 14701 Mission Road. All concerts are free and will begin at 6:00 pm.

The series will continue on August 27th with a concert by local favorites Hard@Play. Back by popular demand, Hard@Play will take us back to cool days in the 70s when Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, Santana and Steely Dan dominated the airwaves.

Hard@Play’s jazz influenced classic rock features a strong horn section. The ten member group includes vocalists Kent and Jeff Swearingen and Troy Burns who is also the keyboardist, drummer Tim Higgins, percussionist Alex Smith, guitarist Flip Hayes, and bassist Joe Nickell. The horn section rounds out the sound with Ted Williams on trumpet, Ken Westphal on trombone and Max Levy on Sax.

Hard@Play’s jazz influenced music runs from the late 60s through the 70s to more current tunes. This evening of “feel good music” is sure to be popular for those of us with fond memories of days past.

Bring your friends and entire family for a relaxing evening in the park. In the event of rain or severe heat, the concert will move into the Lodge at Ironwoods Park.

The concert series concludes with Heat Index on September 4th.

Please join the Leawood Arts Council for our 13th annual free Sundays in the Park Concert Series in the Ironwoods Park Amphitheater. Some seating is available however, we recommend bringing a blanket and/or lawn chairs. Picnics are welcomed but alcohol is not allowed within the park.
