Due to the unexpected passing of Claire’s aunt, Claire and Paul must be out of town to attend the funeral on the date of this concert.

Through the kindness of Van and Leslie Shaw, we have made arrangements to move the location to Uncle Bill’s Music Barn where our Harvest Moon concert was held.  Address disclosed with RSVP.

Legendary Maines Brothers Band member Cary Banks will perform a special CD release concert on Friday October 19th. This is Cary’s 4th CD as a solo artist, and he will have early release copies of this new CD, called simply “Piano”, for sale at this concert. Cary will be accompanied throughout the concert by guitar virtuoso Steve “Gittar” Williams, who also performs on Cary’s new CD. Also joining them for selected songs will be Maines Brothers Band member Jerry Brownlow, and violinist Megan Poppe.

Those who know Cary are aware that he is one of the most versatile musicians around, having excelling skills with multiple instruments and musical styles and genres. In addition, there is no one who has more fun performing than Cary Banks. He is a delightful entertainer, and is sure to captivate every audience. If you’ve never heard Cary perform in person, be sure not to miss this opportunity!

“Piano” by Glen Garnett. This original 15″ x 15″ album cover art will be auctioned to the highest bidder at this concert.

The phenomenal cover art for Cary’s new CD is an original painting by the talented Glen Garnett, also titled “Piano”. The original piece will be on display at this concert and will be auctioned to the highest bidder during the concert! The chance to own this original artwork is exciting to say the least! Glen has commissioned an extremely limited run of 10 high quality, signed and numbered prints (mounted on dryboard) of this piece, and if you don’t win the auction for the original art, you may purchase one of these prints for $99. There will never be another print sold beyond these 10. See “Piano” and more of Glen Garnett’s work at his website: https://www.glenartstudio.com

All in all, this will be an unforgettable evening! This will be an indoor concert, so seating is limited. Please RSVP at your earliest convenience.

Tickets: $20 each. (100% of all money received will go to our guest musician.)

individual on stage who seems to be having
the most fun!

Cary is also a prolific songwriter, and his songs have been recorded by The Maines Brothers Band, Jerry Jordan, Floyd Brown, Cheyenne Ward, Jeremy Crady, and many others. His song “Lay It Down” won first place in a Los Angeles Songwriters Showcase Song contest.
