Music in the Gardens schedule

March 6: The Louie Bluies
March 13: Barry Baughn Blues Band
March 20: Hot Club of Palm Springs
March 27: John Stanley King's Cowboy Songs Band

JSK vocalizes in the folk-country tradition, simple in form and harmony, with some romantic ballads accompanied by JSK's Acoustic Guitar and band. This band produces a sound that is authentic to the genre and just plain fun to listen to. Great covers of country’s legends like Cash, Denver, and Daniels, to name a few, have audiences up on their feet singing and dancing along. The group features John Stanley King on vocals and guitar, Bob Hamilton on banjo and guitar, Jeremie Levi on fiddle, and Damian Lester on Bass.
