Summer Concert Series presents the WORX
SoVaNow.com / June 26, 2014For their second part of the Summer Concert Series Destination Downtown will be presenting the WORX Friday in Constitution Square.
Gates open at 7:30 p.m. with the show starting at 8 and continuing until 11:30 p.m. The five member band which has performed locally on several occasions remains a favorite, playing a wide range of music, rock, country, funk… you name it with an inventory of over 250 songs.
Band leader and lead vocalist Steve Prusak, born and raised in the Roanoke Valley, says he likes any kind of music that is well written and performed with the desire that got him into music in the first place.
Guitarist and vocalist Jerry Wimmer, another Virginia native born in Floyd County, says he has been singing as long as he could talk.
Drums and percussionist Sean Deel is also a native Virginian, born in Salem, who started playing the drums at the age of 10.
Bass guitarist Justin Tolley, joined the band in 2001 after moving to the Roanoke area two years earlier.
The fifth member is Richmond native, Tom Howell, who plays guitar, mandolin and harmonica, who says he has learned so much from the various musicians he has worked with over the years. He and his family now live near Lynchburg and he says “music is just plain good for the soul…”
The band, which has been entertaining audiences for over 24 years, offers a versatility that impresses even the harshest critics and leaves everyone wanting to hear more.
Tickets are $10 at the gate with children 10 and under admitted free with an adult. Advance tickets may be bought at Avon, Caffe Peroni, Bistro 1888, True Value Hardware, the Main Street office, McCollum-Ferrell Shoes, Heritage House Home Furnishings or the Visitor Center.
