JONESBORO — The ethereal voice of Amber Pierce floated like a cloud around Lee Street Park.
Pierce was joined by fellow band mate, Andrew Pierce. Together they make up The Vineyard Band.
The band plays a mix of “traditional country and folk music with a new and unique spin,” according to its website.
Families brought blankets and snacks to listen to the music and meet up with friends Saturday. A few players from the nearby basketball courts were even drawn to the lawn to hear the music.
The concert is part of Jonesboro’s summer-long concert in the park series.
Up next, Lee Street Park will host The Buggs, a Beatles tribute band, Aug. 23. They describe themselves as a full tribute band wearing suits similar to those worn by the original band during early television appearances and playing authentic instruments from the time period.
“(We) sound so close to the real thing you may just think you are in a time warp at a real Beatles show back in the 60s,” the band said on the Gig Salad website.
On Sept. 20, the concert series will feature The Robbie Parker Band.
Lee Street Park is at the corner of Lee and Smith streets. The concerts are free and begin at 7 p.m.
