Past performances include opening for Earth Wind and Fire, playing at major jazz festivals and opening for other touring smooth jazz artists.
  • Saturday, Aug. 13: 7th Street Band *Concert will be at Cypress Park (next to Cypress Aquatic Center at 981 George W. Engram Blvd.)

They are known for performing timeless hits from a wide range of genres and artists. 
  • Saturday, Sept. 17: Franchise Players *Concert will be at Cypress Park (next to Cypress Aquatic Center at 981 George W. Engram Blvd.)
