The outdoor show on the pavilion is to celebrate the recent release of Toms new album Keep Movin’ On. See our story on the making of the album. Toms’ slightly raspy, deeply soulful voice and his guitar playing prowess combine with the drums, horns, and rest of the band to create a hot rock sound. Opening is the Aris Paul Band. 7:30 p.m. 1877 Shriners Way.
