High-energy musicians appear at Lamb-Steele Park at 7 p.m.


IMLAY CITY — Following a week’s hiatus due to the Fourth of July holiday, the Imlay City DDA’s Tuesday Night Summer Concert Series at Lamb-Steele Park resumes on Tuesday, July 13.

The evening’s entertainment will be “Frame 42,” a talented group of outstanding young musicians, whose energetic performance will begin at 7 p.m. at the Lamb-Steele Park gazebo.

The popular Lapeer-based band features Ava Morris and Arianna Smith on vocals; Brock Morris on bass guitar; Michael Farmer on lead guitar; Ben Dalgleish on rhythm guitar; and Lucas Jacobs on drums.

Frame 42 originated in Lapeer under the direction of four-time Grammy nominee Deb Barber.

The band’s style has evolved into various genres, with its musical foundation based in classic rock.

In addition to their fine renderings of cover songs, Frame 42 has expanded its shows to include original songs, which have been well-received by their audiences.

Fronted by the powerful voices of a pair of female lead singers, Ava Morris and Arianna Smith; Frame 42 is catching the ears and eyes of music experts locally and across Michigan.

The band recently released a new EP, produced by a multi-Grammy winning producer.

Concert attendees are encouraged to bring along their own lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the shows.
