O2R to Perform in Bryan Park August 19

The summer concerts in the City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation Performing Arts Series are in full swing! On Sunday, August 19, 2012, in Bryan Park from 6:30-8pm, Bloomingfoods is sponsoring the O2R Blues Band. The concert takes place near the Henderson Street shelter. Bring a picnic and blanket and enjoy the show!

The burning question, "What does O2R stand for?" is answered in this way: "Open to Regret, Ridicule, Righteousness, Riches? The part that counts is the 'Open to.'"

The band includes Zain Mackey on vocals; Lee Van Buskirk, lead guitar and vocals; Ken Grooms, bass guitar; Jim Sprague, rhythm guitar and vocals; and Michele Brentano, piano—along with an array of drummers.

Originally begun as a blues band, they’ve added soul, the Beatles, rock, and country tunes over time—"because they got adventuresome, more well-rounded, better at arrangement and instrumentation, and doggonit, just because they wanted to!"

Hope to see you in Bryan Park!
