Chicago Country Rock band Jin and Tonic Band will headline the second of Buena Park Neighbors Concerts in the Park.  Concert will start at 7PM on August 16 in the Buena Circle Park.

Jin & Tonic Band (JTB) is a full 7-piece country band unlike anything you have heard before: combining the power of three vocals (Jennifer Fletcher,Toni Siprut, and Dan Reyes), amazing musicianship, and includes a fiddle player. What gives them their unique and distinctive sound is their incredible three-part harmonies.

The August concert in the park is sponsored by the Chicago Cubs, The Chicago Park District, and Buena Park neighbors.

BPN Concert in the park

The June 21 Free Concert was a big hit.  Over 200 people of all ages and backgrounds attended.  Caliente put a a great performance with selections to please everyone.  They played everything from Jazz to Swing, to Salsa and more.  Shannon Davis and Rachael Lewis were on hand to paint the faces of what seemed like and endless line of happy children.

Friends and families gathered together to enjoy all sorts of goodies and drinks from Awake Cafe and fromfrom a myriad of coolers and bags as they reclined on blankets and portable chairs.  The Free Concerts seem to create a “small town” atmosphere in the midst of this large city and we are thankful to all who worked to put on this family friendly event.
