KENNESAW, Ga.— Kennesaw State University will present the Star-Spangled Spectacular featuring Banks and Shane at the outdoor Starlight Summer Concert Series on Sunday, June 27 at 7:30 p.m. The concert is free, and the public is invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnics to the Campus Green to enjoy “Atlanta’s Entertainment Tradition.” Concessions will be available and a fireworks display will follow the performance.
Banks and Shane began performing in Atlanta in 1972. They have recorded twelve albums and have performed on stage at a variety of venues worldwide. A self-proclaimed “high-energy, hard-kicking, blow-the-roof off band,” Banks and Shane’s music spans the genres of country, Americana and older rock and roll.
“They’re always entertaining, and it’s always great music,” says Bobby Asher, director of the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center at Kennesaw State.
Banks and Shane promises to transport fans back to “Spring Break 1979.” The atmosphere of the concert will be relaxed and families are encouraged to come. Concessions such as funnel cakes and snow cones will be available.
Admission begins at 6 p.m. For more information, including directions and parking, visit Starlight.
