The Snyders
Wednesday, July 22, 2015

12- 2 PM
Main Library Plaza
Free admission 

The Snyders, formed in the summer of 2011 in Montreal, is a family-based Chicago blues and "roots" band that digs deeply from many styles of music varying from Blues to Jazz, Rock and even Manouche (Gypsy Jazz).  The family unit is comprised of Denny Snyder, vocals/lead guitar, his daughter Lorrie Snyder on vocals/bass, and his son Phil Snyder on the drums. 

Island Vibe
Wednesday, August 12, 2015

12- 2 PM
Main Library Plaza
Free admission 

The Island Vibe band performs their style of island grooves and variety throughout Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. From Jimmy Buffet, Zac Brown Band, country, reggae, authentic Caribbean tunes, and some good old rock & roll, there is sure to be something for everyone. Whether it’s a laid back feeling or get up and dance style that you are looking for, Island Vibe will have you saying, “I can feel it!” So come on and let the island sounds of Rod and Doug take you away. Rod is on guitar and vocals while Doug handles congas, percussion, steel drum and vocals. From the big stage at Fort Wayne’s Three Rivers Festival, the Put-in-Bay party island, to the deck in your backyard, Island Vibe will keep the party jumping and everyone feeling “irie” (Jamaican for really, really good)!
