Mr. Blotto was born in Chicago as an off-night vehicle for musicians who loved each other's playing but were in different bands at the time. The only rule was that they would only play what they absolutely loved to play. That at philosophy continues to this day and has led Mr. Blotto into unique musical situations. Mr. Blotto takes the Jam band aesthetic into areas unfamiliar to the standard Jam Scene. They have been known to cover entire albums by Led Zeppelin and The Who as well as perform entire shows of Country and Reggae.

The Acorn Concert Series is back. On summer Saturdays, enjoy family-friendly evenings at Gabis Arboretum while listening to a variety of musical artists, sipping cold drinks and savoring food from local vendors. Don't forget your lawn chairs! 

The Kinsey brothers, have enjoyed enormous success throughout the 80s and 90s recording, and touring first with their late father, Lester Big Daddy Kinsey, as Big Daddy Kinsey and The Kinsey Report, and then on their own. The Kinseys arrived on the blues scene in 1985 with a winning formula, joining forces with their father to create a signature sound that mixed the traditional with the contemporary. Big Daddys rich baritone vocals, slide guitar and harmonica playing reflected his Mississippi Delta roots, while the younger Kinseys added reggae, rock, gospel, and soul to the mix. Driven by Donalds soulful vocals and impassioned guitar playing, and the tight, in-sync rhythm section of Ralph and Kenneth, The Kinsey Report created a singular sound that caught the attention of blues fans worldwide.
