Series 62 will open the 2017 Music by the River concert series Saturday, May 13, at Belle Isle State Park, 1632 Mary Ball Road. Lancaster. The concert, hosted by the Friends of Belle Isle, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the picnic area.

The three-piece band from Harrisonburg tours throughout the U.S. and plays primarily rock and roll from the 1960s to the present, reported committee co-chairman Robert Mason Jr.

Band members include 14-year-old prodigy Max Togle on drums; his dad Marc Togle on bass and vocals; and Jeff Crozier on lead guitar and vocals.
