One-of -a-Kind Ben Miller Band Plays at Gulley Park This Thursday
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The 22nd Annual Gulley Park Summer Concerts Series presented by Fayetteville Parks and Recreation and Collier and Associates Real Estate features the Ben Miller Band on Thursday.
The popular Joplin, Missouri-based Ben Miller Band is performing this Thursday before heading off on an international summer tour. Don’t mistake the band’s sometimes use of homemade instruments, such as a one-string washtub bass or electric spoons, as a gimmick – the four-member band weaves the sounds and lyrics into an infectious roots-rocking performance.
The FREE concerts take place on the lawn near the Gulley Park gazebo from 7 to 9 p.m. on several Thursdays this summer. It’s family friendly entertainment and all furry friends are welcome (don’t’ forget your poop bags)! With hundreds of lounge chairs and blankets scattered around the park – you’re sure to enjoy the atmosphere in countless ways. Food vendors will be on-site to feed the soul.
Check out this summer’s remaining line-up:
