Lauren Cole Band to headline Lakeside Concert Series

From Staff Reports

Music will fill the air at Winged Deer Park’s Goulding Amphitheatre on Thursday, Aug. 11, when the Lauren Cole Band takes the stage. Showtime is set for 7 p.m.

The Lauren Cole Band is a blues-driven rock band from Johnson City. Cole’s dynamic vocal range has captured the attention of audiences in Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina. She is backed by a tight four-piece ensemble that perfectly complements her vocals. Dom Avento plays the bass, and it’s when he gets out the upright that the fun really begins. Guitarists Joe Avento and Mike Murphy are joined by drummer Josh Shores. The band’s upbeat playlist has made the band an area favorite.

The free Lakeside Concert Series takes place at Winged Deer Park, 4137 Bristol Highway, and the Goulding Amphitheatre is off Carroll Creek Road. Sponsors include Bristol Broadcasting, DOTHERT Recording Studios, Johnson City Parks and Recreation and News and Neighbor. For more information, call 283-5815, email [email protected] or visit
