Cobert Operations

Friday, July 27, 2012 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm


Jon Colbert

Outdoor concerts on the north lawn at the Arts Center.

Cobert Operations is a horn-based rock band with jazz/funk influence that does covers of tunes you don't hear every day and a few bluesy originals. The repertoire includes songs by The Band, Elton John, Steely Dan, Leon Russell, Billy Joel, Dr. John, the Beatles and the Stones.
Led by pianist/vocalist Jon Cobert, the members of Cobert Operations (veterans who have played with John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Laura Branigan, Carly Simon, Ray Charles, The Four Tops and Todd Rundgren) are: 

Jon Cobert (keyboard/vocals), Peter Calo (guitar), Stu Woods (bass), Rob Wallis (drums), Tim Ouimette (trumpet), Mark Fineberg (saxophone) and Kati Mac (vocals).

Because of the generosity of Friends of Kent Library, Radovich & Dean Music, Kent Liquors, and Joan Iacono Law, the concerts are pay-what-you-wish.

Arrive early with a lawn chair or blanket. Vendors Carmel Bagel, Johnny Gelato Ice Cream and Johnny’s Fire Dogs will be on-site starting at 6:15.

In the event of rain, the concert will be held indoors at the Center.

If you'd like to become a Friend of Summer Concert Series with a $30 contribution, not only will you support this music program but also you receive a reserved indoor admission in the event of inclement weather and, if your contribution is received by July 10, your name listed in the program.
