Seeking to cut loose and have some safe fun this weekend? Look no further than LakewoodAlive’s Virtual Front Porch Concert Series, which welcomes lively swing band Red Light Roxy this Friday, July 10.
Sponsored by Bentley Wealth Management of Raymond James, the 2020 Front Porch Concert Series features eight musical performances hosted virtually via LakewoodAlive’s Facebook page on Friday evenings at 7 p.m. The series, which aims to foster Lakewood’s vibrancy while offering a safe, family-friendly entertainment option, runs through August 21.
Week 2 brings to the stage Red Light Roxy, an authentic swingin’ jazz and blues band. This sextet plays an upbeat mix of jazz standards, jump blues, swing, boogie-woogie and a dash of old-school R&B. Its setlist originates from the Great American Songbook and includes familiar songs made famous by such legendary performers as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Louis Armstrong.
Red Light Roxy has performed at the Tri-C JazzFest, Lock3Live in Akron and Wade Oval Wednesday in University Circle, as well as at a variety of swing dances and summer concerts throughout the region. The band consists of Joe Hunter (piano), Dave Sterner (saxophone), Demetrius Steinmetz (bass), Eileen Burns (vocals), Daris Adkins (guitar) and Holbrook Riles III (drums).
Now in its 10th year, the popular music series is taking on a different format to ensure health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, yet LakewoodAlive remains committed to enhancing Lakewood’s sense of community by offering free weekly concerts that families and all music lovers can enjoy.
