Concert on the Lawn
Taking the Main Stage at 7:00 P.M., Texas-based “GOOD QUESTION BAND” ignites the new HALL Park amphitheater with great music, energy and a huge “wall of sound”! With two beautiful and talented female vocalists, lead male vocals, and an outstanding horn and rhythm section driving the groove, the group consistently has audiences on their feet leaving them wanting more. Performing a huge variety of music, including today’s contemporary hits to legendary classics, “GOOD QUESTION BAND” has the look, the sound, and the song selection that sets the group apart from others. Bring a blanket, chairs, and enjoy the concert with us!
There will be a designated children’s area with special activities. Kids will enjoy an instrument petting zoo (with strings, horns, and percussion instruments to try), bounce houses, face painting, balloon artists, carnival games, puppet-making and more! Thanks to our sponsors Williamson Music 1st, Junior League of Collin County, and Q.Care.
