B & B Strings will close out the Coal Country Chamber of Commerce’s final concert for the month of June tonight at the Benld City Park. The concert begins at 7 p.m. and is 90 minutes straight through, but the park opens at 6 p.m. with the concession stand serving hot dogs, “big smokies”, Italian beef, soda and water and strawberry shortcake sundaes.
B & B Strings is an acoustic trio consisting of two acoustic guitars and a bass guitar based out of Montgomery County. Ben Pulley and Bob Smith were the original members starting as a duo and Roy Rubenstein made it a trio in early 2012.
All three members sing and contribute harmonies to vocals. They play a wide variety of music from classic rock to country classics that are popular and recognizable, always working within acoustic harmony arrangements.
The concert is free to the public. Patrons regularly bring their own lawn chairs and enjoy the concerts rain or shine because we are under the pavilion. Parking is free and dancing is enjoyed.
