Back in June, Gregg Gelb and Heart of Carolina Jazz got the crowd of about 250 people in Downtown Sanford on its feet with Latin percussion and dancers from Sanford Latin Dance leading the way.
Tonight, Gelb and his big band return with big band swing music, mixed in with a little Motown. Sanford artists Durwin (D.Z.) Carr and Iris Jordan will join Heart of Carolina on stage for the second Function concert at Depot Park in August. Last week’s performance by Kelley & the Cowboys marked the return of the series after a monthlong break in July. As with past concerts, the event is free, and food and beer will be sold on site.
Tonight marks a return with Heart of Carolina for Jordan, who performed at last year’s Motown show at the Lee County Arts Center, singing tuns like “You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman,” “Signed, Sealed Delivered,” and “Respect.”
