After the 2014 80/35 Music Festival and the Ames Sesquicentennial celebration have both come and gone, most of Sunday's concerts will be of the laid-back variety. Here is a look at the Central Iowa concert calendar for Sunday, June 6.
While most of Sunday's live music will feature blues, jazz, adult contemporary, and R&B, Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines will host the one exception. Des Moines-based hip hop artist Subject1ne (Quincy King) will hold a release party for his new mixtape Reinvented at 6:30 p.m. The young rapper claims on Facebook that he is taking the first 25 people through the door on a party bus after the show. The event is open to all ages, and there will be a $5 cover charge at the door.
The Des Moines blues trio The Soul Searchers (pictured) will perform at Two Saints Winery in Saint Charles from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon. The band is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to their 2007 self-titled debut, and they hope to have the finished product available later this summer. The show on Sunday is free and open to all 21-and-over.
Adult contemporary singer/songwriter Krista Haugland will perform at the Hotel Pattee in Perry on Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. The classically-trained pianist is a Lansing, Iowa native who now makes her home in Des Moines. The performance is free and open to all ages.
The Final Mix Show Band will perform at the Jordan Creek Town Center on Sunday as part of the Live at the Creek summer concert series. The band led by Iowa Blues Hall of Famer Del "Saxman" Jones plays covers of contemporary R&B, jazz fusion, blues, hip hop, and rock as well as original material. Final Mix will play from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Jordan Creek Amphitheater, and the event is free and open to the public.
Hull Avenue Tavern will host their weekly blues showcase with Curry Chris Harter, Tom Gary, and a number of guests. The event runs from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. and is followed by an open jam. Admission is free, and you must be 21 or older to attend.
Flipside will be the featured entertainment for Summerset Winery's "Sunday Tunes" concert series this week. The Des Moines cover band will play from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Indianola winery. Admission is $3 per person or $10 per carload, and wine, non-alcoholic beverages, and snacks will be available for purchase from the winery. This is a 21+ event.
