The Leawood Arts Council will again host a Concert Series each Sunday evening, August 16th through September 6th. 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 concludes on September 6th with a concert by Hard@Play. This group has been a favorite on the Kansas City music scene over the past few years. Their jazz influenced classic rock features a strong horn section.

The nine member group includes vocalists Kent and Jeff Swearingen and Troy Burns who is also the keyboardist, drummer Tim Higgins, jazz guitar player Ron Carlson, and bassist Joe Nickell. The horn section rounds out the sound with Ted Williams on trumpet, Ken Westphal on trombone and Jack Bates on Sax.

Hard@Play takes us back to cool days in the 70s when Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, Santana and Steely Dan dominated the airwaves. This evening of “feel good music” is sure to be popular for those of us with fond memories of days past.

Hard@Play’s jazz influenced music runs from the late 60s through the 70s to more current tunes. Bring your friends and entire family for a relaxing evening in the park. In the event of rain the concert will move into the Lodge at Ironwoods Park.

Please join the Leawood Arts Council for our 10th 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. Some refreshments will be available. Picnics are welcomed but alcohol is not allowed within the park.

For more information please call the Leawood Cultural Arts Coordinator at (913) 663-9157.
