Thank you for another wonderful year. Andy Carlson and Casey Cook were a huge highlight. We are so lucky to have this event. Grateful thanks to Lisa Barnes, to all the volunteers and everyone who works hard to make it a success.

Summer of the Arts is an amazing organization that puts on free, family-friendly events in Iowa City. I feel so lucky to be a part of this awesome non-profit.

Welcome to #MeetTheBandMonday! Every Monday we will introduce one of our Friday Night Concert Series bands. To start, we have David Zollo & The Body Electric with Brian Johannesen performing May 19th!

David Zollo started as a 21-year old in Iowa City who was hungry for rock and roll. He has been a singer, songwriter and keyboardist for his own bands but also a sideman for a long list of musical talents. He started and established Trailer Records, and produced six records of his own material. He has been a producer to up-and-coming bands such as The Pines and Brother Tucker. David Zollo is known as an exuberant and passionate performer, who was clearly born to make music.
