2017 Summer Concerts at Quiet Waters Park

July 8 – Fractal Cat – Baltimore band Fractal Cat emphasizes classic songwriting, a strong vocal presence, and a multilayered psychedelic sound. Originally the solo studio endeavor of songwriter Miles Gannett, the project evolved into a six-piece rock ensemble. Fractal Cat weaves pop songs and vocal craft influenced by greats from Buddy Holly to Smokey Robinson.

July 15 – Sweet Leda – Powered by Julie Cymek’s sultry, commanding vocals and electrifying stage presence, Sweet Leda is taking the diverse mid-Atlantic music scene by storm as one of the most exciting and accomplished live acts on the rise. With its rich blend of new school funk, psychedelic rock, soul and pop, Sweet Leda’s heartfelt original music can best be described as a female-fronted, soul-based, Zeppelin meets Chili Peppers!

July 22 –Georgia Lea & Stone Cold Country – Georgia Lea and the Stone Cold Country have been bringing you great music since 1999. Their stage presence along with the great female lead vocals have allowed them to open for bands such as Toby Keith and Rascal Flatts.

August 5 – Kelly Bell Band – Voted best blues band 12 years in a row and is among the most genreexpanding acts on today’s blues scene. Who else can combine elements of hiphop, funk and blues-electrified here, Delta there, horn driven elsewhere- and still manage to sound sincere? A forward view of the way blues is transitioning in today’s scene…Bell’s an honest poet and an outstanding singer with lots to say.
