A band that plays funk, soul, and R&B will play a free concert at the Oak Ridge Civic Center Pavilion on Friday.
It’s part of the Secret City Sounds Summer Concert Series. Friday’s show starts at 7 p.m. at the pavilion at 1403 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
A press release said Soulfinger is “spearheading a neo-classic funk and soul movement” and “bringing the ‘original’ funk and soul sound and influence back to today’s live music scene.”
The group is led by singer Tim Spencer and horn player Pee Jay Alexander, who also plays with local R&B ensemble Aftah Party and used to perform with “frat-funk” favorites Gran Torino.
All Secret City Sounds concerts are free, and they are presented by the Arts Council of Oak Ridge and sponsored by the City of Oak Ridge. Organizers recommend bringing a blanket or chair and setting up on the lawn behind the pavilion at Bissell Park. Food, ice cream, and beverages will be available.
