Everyday Lights
Performs at Art a la Carte in the Park in Oakdale Park


The Art a la Carte concert series on Friday, May 30th, will feature the band Everyday Lights.  This special Smoky Hill River Festival preview will take place on the Eric Stein Stage in Oakdale Park.  The band will play an expanded set, beginning at 12:15 p.m, concluding just before 1:00 p.m.  There is no charge for admission. 
The Art a la Carte in the Park concert marks the final presentation of the spring season.  There will be free Pepsi products and Festival admission buttons and t-shirts will be on sale.  The first clue in the annual Festival Medallion Quest will be read live from the stage during the event. 
Everyday Lights is a group of Salina-based musicians, led by Paul Austin, with a love for folk and jazz rhythms.  The group’s unique instrumentation and improvised harmony allows them to give a fresh sound to popular hits as well as jazz standards.  Covering songs from groups ranging from The Civil Wars to The Beatles, their surprising arrangements always keep the audience guessing and looking forward to their next song.
   In inclement weather, Art a la Carte performances are held at Kansas Wesleyan University, Hauptli Student Center, 100 E. Claflin.
