The free, family-friendly “Evenings in Olde Towne” concert series will have performances on Thursday nights in July and September at the City Hall Concert Pavilion in Olde Towne Gaithersburg. All concerts will take place from 6:30-8 p.m. The next show will feature the The Billy “T” Wilde Band on Thursday, July 28.
The concerts offer the opportunity to wind down Thursdays with great music in a casual, outdoor setting. Attendees can bring food and drinks to the concerts. They should also bring a blanket or low-back chair for lawn seating.
The concert pavilion is located at 31 South Summit Ave. in Gaithersburg.
With just his guitar and thundering voice, Billy “T” Wilde performs both a stripped down, yet high energy, one-man-band act, as well as a duo blues, pop/rock group with his percussionist. He is part of a growing trend of looping artists who are able to use a looping pedal to layer musical harmonies to reproduce the sound, feel and energy of a full band.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, D.C,. Billy began playing piano at age 5 and soon added guitar to his musical repertoire, ultimately becoming his main instrument of choice. Billy has performed in large concert venues such as the Patriot Center and Jiffly Lube Live, outdoor festivals and large night clubs. He has opened up for national acts including Lincoln Park, 30 Seconds to Mars and Dave Mathews.
