They’re back! Suits That Rock, the successful fundraising concert for the The Carnegie in Covington returns with a summer themed event – SwimSuits That Rock – on June 22 and 29. Local business and civic leaders show off their true passion, music, by strapping on their guitars and beating their drums, all to support the children’s art education programs at The Carnegie. One of the rockers (and co-founder of this event), Fidelity Investments’ Kevin Canafax, joins Jim Stump with more information on the performers, the music, and the work of The Carnegie.
After a triumphant appearance with the Cincinnati Ballet in April, guitar virtuoso and former Cincinnatian Peter Framptonis coming back to town with a few of his friends: BB King and Sonny Landreth. They’ll be in concert at the PNC Pavilion on August 14 with a show called Frampton’s Guitar Circus Tour, and he spends a few minutes with Brian O’Donnell to talk about the music and these guitar legends.
One of the highlights of this year’s Cincinnati Pride Week will be the Cincinnati Men’s Chorus concert entitled Loud and Proud, taking place June 22 and 23 at the School for Creative and Performing Arts downtown. Artistic Director Casey Hayes is in the studio with our Jim Stump with details on this year’s program and the historical significance of this concert at gay rights.
