The Greenville Municipal Jazz Band to Feature Chelsea Whirledge and Bill Westfall.

Concerts in the park return this Sunday, August 27th, with the Greenville Municipal Jazz Band performing at 7pm at the Marling Band Shell area of the Greenville City Park.  The concert is free and open to the public.  Make plans now to attend this wonderful evening of jazz and pop music.

This week the band will feature the pop and jazz vocal stylings of Chelsea Whirledge.  Chelsea is in her fifth season as a singer with the bands.  She is a 2007 graduate of Greenville Senior High School and a 2011 graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.  Chelsea is currently in her fifth year as the Vocal Music Director for Greenville High School.  She is a crowd favorite and her wonderful voice will take center stage Sunday.  Chelsea is scheduled to sing the Stevie Wonder Classic “You Are the Sunshine of My Life,” “Sway” as recorded by Michael Buble, “Summertime” and the great jazz classic “When I Fall in Love.”

Also taking a prominent solo role with the jazz band will be the guitar expressions of Bill Westfall.  Bill is a 1970 graduate of Greenville High School.  Bill is a prominent musician in our area getting his start playing in garage bands in the 60’s.  He is now a lead guitarist in numerous bands that tour throughout the United States and currently leads the local band The Green DeVilles.  Bill will be featured on the guitar classic Sleepwalk.

Please make plans to enjoy a wonderful evening of jazz and pop music in our beautiful city park this Sunday, August 27th at 7pm.  Limited park bench seating is available or you may bring your own lawn chair or blanket to sit on and enjoy the show.  The concerts in the park are a great way to spend time with family and friends.
