2017 3rd Thursday Music Series

Thursday, May 18: JeeZ LaWeez

Jeez LaWeez may appear to be a musical group, but in fact, they are a self-professed spiritual path to enlightenment disguised as a hugely talented and outrageously silly trio of musicians.

Thursday, June 15: Zoltan & the Fortune Tellers

Wild like the west, fine like an aged whiskey
Zoltan and the Fortune Tellers are indeed frisky
Songs about women and songs about cheese
They will play a march fit for a circus of fleas
A Jack of all trades, you will find Zoltan in movies
His musical antics are really a doozie.
