The idea of listening to the overplayed classics "Twist and Shout," "Great Balls of Fire" or "Rock Around the Clock" may trigger lackadaisical yawns. However, when you add the evening summer sun, a garden retreat and a group of live performers to the picture, it suddenly becomes a lot more appealing.
Located south of Shadow Valley Golf Course off Highway 55, Stonebridge Gardens is host to an abundance of flowers and wildlife like hummingbirds, hawks and eagles, and, now, also a score of concerts and events. Stonebridge Gardens is offering a performance Wednesday, July 14, by Gigmasterz, giving people the opportunity to twist and shake away the hump day blues.
Gigmasterz is comprised of David Westmoreland, Jon Klein, Camden Hughes and Damien Bard. The foursome combines a bit of rock 'n' roll and '50s nostalgia in their repertoire but also plays a wide variety of jazz and country classics.
Bring a low-back chair or blanket and pack a picnic dinner to ensure maximum musical enjoyment. Food and drink, such as homemade tortilla salad, chips and salsa, and hummus and veggies will also be available for purchase from Seasons Bistro and Catering in Eagle.
