Kansas City’s Antennas Up, a band with a funky, soulful sound, will perform a concert tomorrow (Wednesday, Aug. 27) at William Woods University. Their music has been described as a slick, dance-worthy blend of rock, funk and soul grooves.

The concert, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the lawn outside Tucker Dining Hall. The audience is encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair to enjoy the concert alongside Senior Lake.

In case of rain, the concert will be performed in Cutlip Auditorium of the McNutt Campus Center.

The Antennas Up concert is part of the annual President’s Concert and Lecture Series, which brings top entertainment to campus for the enjoyment of students and the community.

The band features Lonnie Coleman, vocals; Bo McCall, guitar and vocals; Kyle Akers, bass and vocals, and the Ryantist, drums and vocals.
