Lanesboro Arts is thrilled to present General B and The Wiz as part of the 2023 Rhythms on the Root series on Saturday, June 10th at 6:00 p.m. in Gateway Park. General B and The Wiz never fails to deliver lively performances that envelop listeners. Their touching yet humorous lyrics and style help to give Midwest concertgoers a unique, lighthearted experience with every listen.
General B and the Wiz is a blues-influenced indie rock band made up of several jazz-loving people: vocalist Quincy Voris, guitarist Seth Duin, guitarist Kai Brewster, drummer Kyle Holder, bassist Kevin Coughenour, and keyboard player Frank Merchlewitz. As collaborative songwriters, General B and the Wiz delivers high-energy music to keep their audience both laughing and dancing.
Though this group started as a fun experiment in 2010, they have been bringing their own twist on rock-and-roll around North America. General B and The Wiz was their first album released in 2011, although they have continued to create music in the past decade, with their latest release being an EP, Screw / None of Your Concern. Throughout their performances, audiences learn to expect the unexpected due to the beautiful yet humorous songs.
Rhythms on the Root activates the vibrant asset of Gateway Park as a place for the Lanesboro community and visitors to gather and celebrate with live music. The 2023 series offers a range of music including indie rock, dream pop, and alternative country from regionally acclaimed bands General B and The Wiz, Sleeping Jesus, and Faith Boblett.
The concerts will take place from 6:00 – 7:30 pm on the second Saturday of every month June through August. Tickets are $20 General Admission for individuals age 13+ and $15 Lanesboro Arts Members (free for 12 and under, but ticket still required). Seating will be first come, first served general admission. Bring your own lawn chair or blanket to sit on in the park!
