LAKEPORT The opening night of the 19th annual Summer Concerts in the Park series played out under warm but breezy skies Friday.


The audience, estimated at 1,200 welcomed, KNTI DJ Eric Patrick as the master of the stage for the two-hour concert by the Hopland based band, II Big.

 

 

The five-member band had a bit of a slow start as wind gusts caused excessive noise across the singers' microphones. They also had problems with feedback for the first few tunes but once the bugs were worked out the band sounded great. II Big played a 80-20 split of original numbers with a few rock and roll favorites thrown in.


Their newest CD, "Face In The Glass," hits the stores next week.

 

 

Intermission was, as always, a crowd favorite as Eric Patrick awarded sponsor-donated prizes in response to requests for "Dumb Stuff" from the audience.


The second show in the 10-week series will feature Chicken and The Defenders starting a 6:30 p.m. June 22.
