LULU & Co. Novelty Ragtime Band  –  June 20, 5:00 p.m.

Scioto Ridge BoysJune 27, 6:00 p.m.

Through the joyous gift of music, the Scioto Ridge Boys gospel quartet delivers a spirit-filled message of God’s love and grace. Beginning in their home church, Scioto Ridge United Methodist in Hilliard, Ohio in 1992, the Scioto Ridge Boys have sung at over 550 venues—in Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania.
The ensemble of Mark Snider (tenor), Barry Weaver (tenor), Bob Houston (baritone) and Bob Joseph (bass) blends traditional and contemporary Southern Gospel selections in their concerts. Audiences enjoy the joyful, enthusiastic, sometimes humorous, yet vital, witness that the Scioto Ridge Boys deliver in their performances, along with close melodic harmony and lyrical interpretations. If you like good old-time, close vocal harmony, you’ll surely enjoy the music of the Scioto Ridge Boys.

Heartsong  – July 25, 6:00 p.m.

A few years ago, a group of friends circled around a piano for an old-fashioned hymn sings. Since then, Heartsong is now seven-member ensemble with a developed repertoire of both sacred and secular pieces. Heartsong believes music is a universal language that can be enjoyed by all. They share music at senior living communities, churches, fundraisers, weddings and more.
