The concert will take place from 6pm to 8pm in the History Pavilion in Riverfront Park. In case of rain, it will be in the River Market pavilions.
Instrumental jazz/funk/blues project Twicesax came together in 2009 when sax-playing brothers-in-law Dave Williams II and Brandon Dorris solidified a group of musicians who had been regulars at a local jam.
The group performs a mix of originals and artfully arranged covers. Each musician plays professionally in many other bands and draws from their own influences of jazz, rock, bluegrass, funk and blues, creating a lively and complex sound that listeners have called “music that gets into your head, gets into your bones and moves you.”
- Dave Williams on sax

- Jason McHughes on drums
- Matthew Stone on guitar and mandolin
- Daniel Schoultz on bass
