The Boone Kiwanis Club and Southern Appalachian Historical Association—the folks who put on Horn in the West—are opening a new free concert series tonight on the grounds of the Horn in the West Theater in Boone.  The series kicks off with ‘Smoky Breeze,’ a soul band from Boone that performs around the southeast. The concert series, with free admission, raises money for the Kiwanis projects fund through a raffle at each event, those funds used for children’s projects in Watauga County.  Sponsors are also backing the effort, which will promote local business as part of the series.  Concerts are 6 to 8pm Mondays concluding Labor Day.
Patrons are invited to bring lawn chairs, as seating will be in the grassy area leading to the theater, can bring picnics, and SAHA will open the Horn in the West concession stand as well. 
Other groups scheduled include ‘The Lucky Strikes,’ with a variety of fun, unique, popular music ranging from jazz standards, swing and blues to beach, Motown and classic rock-n-roll from the 50s thru the early 80s; ‘The Watauga Community Band’ July 2nd, performing show music, Americana, and patriotic numbers for the Independence holiday; ‘The Silvio Martinat Swing Band’ July 9th, with music of the Big Band and crooner’s eras; ‘Uphill Both Ways,’ with Country, Bluegrass on July 16th; ‘High Standards’ with old rock ‘n Roll and crooner tunes; ‘Shane Chalke's BE Jazz’ with Cool Jazz August 6th. More bands are being confirmed for dates through September 3rd.  For information, call Steve Frank at 828-414-1027.
