The annual Sounds of Summer concert series hosted by the City of Navasota gets underway Friday, June 24, at Navasota City Hall, 200 East McAlpine Street in Navasota beginning at 6:30 p.m. Bring your lawn chairs and your dancing shoes for some great live music and family-friendly activities.

The music

Renowned Blues band, The Keesha Pratt Band will kick off the series. The Houston based, International Award-winning band possesses the skill and artistry reminiscent of Blues old school Motown; a rarity among bands of any genre today. Their nine-piece musical collective lends its energy and passion to traditional blues, contemporary blues and offers a preview to the future of blues. The musical artistry and dexterity of The Keeshea Pratt Band allows it to journey unapologetically across the genres of classical, jazz, southern rock, soul, gospel, country and back again.

Singing since the age of six, Pratt has shared the stage with several notable national figures including bluesman Bobby Rush, Eddie Cotton, opera singer Grace Bumbry, soul singer Musiq Soulchild, and gospel icon the late Reverend James Moore.

In addition to great music, there will be food and drink vendors onsite, arts and crafts provided by the Navasota Artists in Residence, a bounce house, water slide and a cornhole tournament.
