Kremer Amphitheatre concert series kicks off July 1

Marietta College kicks off the Kremer Amphitheatre Concert Series on Wednesday, July 1, with a two-hour concert by the talented rhythm and blues artist Dav "Fathead" Davis.

The concert has been moved from the amphitheatre to The Gathering Place because of potential rain in the area.

"We had Dav ’Fathead’ Davis perform for our Coffee House Series during the academic year and he was probably the best musician I've heard in years," said David Travis, Director of Student Activities & Greek Life at Marietta College.

The Offices of Residence Life and Student Activities & Greek Life sponsor the Kremer Amphitheatre Concert Series.

Davis, who sings and plays the electric piano, will be accompanied by his band. The seasoned performer has been entertaining for more than three decades.

The concert will be from 6 to 8 p.m.

The second installment of the series features a performance by the Fleetwood Mac tribute band, Enchanted. That concert is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. on July 29.

"We hope to draw enough of a crowd to these two concerts so we can expand the series next year to four performances," Travis said.

Enchanted entertains throughout Ohio by playing a wide range of bands and singers from Evanescence to The Doobie Brothers and Pink to Journey. They are most known for their Fleetwood Mac tributes.

"Enchanted is also a very talented group of musicians and they really capture the sound of Fleetwood Mac," Travis said.

In case of inclement weather for either performance, the concert venue will be changed to the Gathering Place, which is located on Marietta College's campus at the corner of Butler and Seventh streets.
