The Hilliard Arts Council Presents their Summer Concert Series as a “Drive-In” to ensure social distancing. These live concerts will take place in front of the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center, 5425 Center Street on the grass between the front door and the mural. Patrons are invited to pull their cars up and listen and can also get out of their cars and sit in chairs in front of them or on the driveway in front of the theatre.
This week’s concert:
Topher James and Biscuit Brigade
August 2, 7 p.m.
Refusing to take the route of his peers Topher James shunned the corporate world after a pivotal moment with his boss and began a journey of music, for a living, as a way of life. A common denominator of all the music he loved growing up was melody, strong emotional content, and soul. Studying the likes of classic artists such as Sam Cooke and Donny Hathaway as well as modern R&B and Gospel artists like PJ Morton and Emily King Topher quickly put together a band. Forming in 2014 Topher James and Biscuit Brigade has grown and evolved into a powerhouse soul band featuring rich vocal harmony and funky guitar riffs pleasing crowds everywhere.
