Free concert by swing band

SHAMOKIN - A 17-piece swing band will perform a free concert in August, in hopes of generating interest in starting a community concert series.

Dave Spotts, promoter and member of the After Hours Big Band, said the band will play between 6 and 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 23, at Claude Kehler Community Park. Members live throughout the region, but have not played any public performances in the Greater Shamokin area in several years, he said.

He wants to start the series next year, but said much depends on community support.

People attending the concert are asked to bring their own chairs.
