Sounds Around Town

Sounds Around Town was a free concert series presented by WQLN Public Media and held on Friday evening in July and August 2014. The concerts were recorded and aired on WQLN TV on the following Thursday evening. The program is hosted by WQLN Radio's own Gary Finney, all-around groovy guy and host of The Third Set on WQLN Radio 91.3FM, and featured rock, jazz, funk, and fusion by Erie favorite Eric Brewer & Friends (July 11); jazzy, pulse-pumping original tunes from The Heliotropes (July 18); and bluesy originals from up-and-coming singer/songwriter Bronsen Euard & The Essentials (August 1).
