Daybreak-a musical group performing music from Judy Garland to Patsy Cline to Lady Gaga to Sinatra-will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 13, in the Gregory Park bandstand.
The band features hits from the '40s through today's top classics.
Daybreak was founded in 1978 and they have played together for several years, performing at many of central Minnesota's top night spots. In 2013, four of the original members were again living in the Brainerd area.They renewed their friendship and their common interest in music and began performing their special brand of music for their old fans and a legion of new ones. Daybreak is anchored by Rock and Country Hall of Fame guitarist/steel guitarist Dick Wilt. Leisha Kaye is the voice of Daybreak. She began performing with Daybreak as a teenager and has developed into one of Minnesota's top song stylists. The rhythm section features music veteran Jim Hanson on bass/keyboard/vocals and Pat Scrimshaw, one of Minnesota's most versatile musicians, is featured on harmonica, saxophone and vocals; and Joe Yager on drums.
Bandstand concerts are free and open to the public. People can bring a lawn chair, a blanket and be ready to enjoy the music. Rain out site is at The Center, 803 Kingwood St., Brainerd. If the concerts are moved indoors, signs will be posted on the bandstand and it will be announced on WJJY radio.
Concerts in the park are collaboration between Brainerd Parks and Recreation Department and The Center. Additional supporting sponsors are the Brainerd Community Foundation, Brainerd Lions, Mid Minnesota Federal Credit Union and the BN Credit Union.
