7th Avenue brings unique musical blend to Community Concert
Vocal quartet 7th Avenue will present the first concert of the Golden Belt Community Concert Association’s 2018-2019 season at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, in the Great Bend Municipal Auditorium, Lakin and Stone.

The Golden Belt Community Concert Association will present the vocal quartet 7th Avenue as its first concert of the 2018-2019 season. The concert is set for Thursday, Oct. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Great Bend Municipal Auditorium, Lakin and Stone.

This GBCCA event is open to association members. Anyone wishing to purchase a season membership may do so at the door at this concert. Memberships are $50 per adult; $10 for any full-time enrolled student; $110 for a Family Membership; and $110 for a Grandparent Package. No single concert tickets are available. Full-time students will be admitted to the concert for a $5 donation at the door.

Formed by Chris Rupp, founder of the group Home Free, 7th Avenue combines elements of pop, swing, rockabilly, country, and more. Its music is a blend a cappella, live piano and tracked accompaniment, mixing old favorites and hip covers such as “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” “Route 66,” “Uptown Funk” and “Hallelujah.”

The quartet doesn’t want to pursue just one musical genre. These musicians have some heavy vocal harmonies in their songs, working well with both country and jazz. They have such strong and diverse musical backgrounds that they can create a rich blend of styles.
