— Grammy Award-winning Brave Combo will perform in concert Sunday at Lion's Park as part of the Summer Breeze Concert series. The band will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. at the park at Symmes Street and Flood Avenue.

The Denton, Texas-based group originally was scheduled to kick off the Summer Breeze concert series in May, but the performance was rained out.

Two-time Grammy Award winners, Brave Combo has perfected a music mix that includes salsa, meringue, rock, the blues and other styles.

Founded in 1979 by guitarist/keyboardist/accordionist Carl Finch, the group has been a prominent fixture on the Texas music scene for more than 25 years. Alongside Finch for most of the years has been multi-instrumentalist Jeffrey Barnes, who joined in 1983. Barnes is known for his lively and imaginative stage wear, as well as his performance using an array of reeds and woodwinds, harmonica, pennywhistle and guitars.

Rounding out the current lineup are trumpet player Danny O'Brien, drummer Alan Emert and Little Jack Melody on electric bass.

The concert is free and attendees are urged to bring blankets or lawn chairs and refreshments.
