Concert Review

Concert - Heritage Square 9/9/17

The concert last night featuring E-Flat Porch Band in Heritage Square was awesome. About 100 people showed up and they all had a great experience with great music. The weather was perfect and the music exceptional. We hope more people will take advantage of these free concerts from the City of Mesquite in the future.

The E-Flat Porch Band is named for the porch in McKinney, Texas where the members first practiced - it resonates to the key of E-Flat. Duane Brown and Rudy Littrell form the core of the band, entertaining with their unique blend of acoustic "porch music," including folk, Blues, early country, jazz and original tunes. As "angst-free" acoustic musicians, they play serious music without taking themselves too seriously.

The group has been together for over 20 years. Visit their website.
