The GrooveTones, a South Carolina blues and rock band, performed in front of a crowd of about 300 last Saturday as part of Street Music on Paris Avenue. The mild evening brought out music lovers young and old: Cute children ran around and danced while the adults mingled, drank beer and wine, and listened to the funky sounds of the band.
The Street Music series, committed to providing quality national and international touring musicians of all genres for free, is a gift to the community from the Town of Port Royal and produced by ARTworks. Four concerts are held from May to June. The next free concert is Saturday, May 26 at 6:30 p.m. and features folk and Americana singer Angela Easterling and The Beguilers.
