Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

SALUDA– The Top of the Grade Concert series continues July 21 from 7 to 9 pm with Dulci Ellenberger on the Ella Grace Mintz Stage in McCreery Park. Enjoy a summer night and Dulci’s wonderful vocals as she sings her originals and covers. 

Dulci will be joined by a dream cast of players including Alyse Baca on supporting vocals and percussion, Kevin Williams on bass and vocals, Ross Montsinger on drums, Ryan Furstenberg (The Moon and You) on electric guitar, and Charlie Humphrey (Holy Ghost Tent Revival) on trumpet, keys, and synth. This collection of creatives will join forces to present Dulci’s original music including new tunes and some of the favorites from her solo album, I Can Feel It (2015). Additionally, audiences can expect high-energy, updated covers of powerful female vocalists of the 60’s like Dionne Warwick and Doris Day. 

Please remember to bring a lawn chair. You may bring wine and beer to the concert but limit your consumption to the seating area. No alcohol is allowed on the playground or in the parking lot. Remember to place a to-go order at one of Saluda’s fine restaurants so you can enjoy a picnic and live music in the park.
