The band “These Guys Here” will perform at the Summer Nights at the Harbor concert sponsored by Keller Williams Realty Northeast and the Kings Harbor restaurants on Thurs., July 1 from 6-9 p.m. at Kings Harbor. “These Guys Here” band plays a combination of classic rock and country songs with folk-inspired vocal harmonies.
Members of the band are Rick Lindholtz, keyboard, acoustic guitar and vocals; Dick Chapman, bass guitar and vocals; Raymond Foster, lead guitar and vocals; and Joe Condoleo, drums. They are all residents of the Kingwood/Atascocita area.
Nashville-based Christian recording artist Christi Harper will perform at the free Keller Williams concert series at Kings Harbor on Fri., June 18 from 7-10 p.m. She will be accompanied by the Houston area Christian band Pierced Grip.
“It will be a fantastic, family-friendly night of popular favorites, original songs and some fun cover tunes,” says Harper, who grew up in Kingwood and is looking forward to singing for her hometown crowd.
This summer Keller Williams Realty Northeast and Kings Harbor Waterfront Village will extend their successful concert series by adding four additional Thursday night events to the schedule. The Summer Nights at the Harbor will be held June 10, July 1, Aug. 5 and Sept. 2 from 6-9 p.m.
Designed to provide entertainment the whole family can enjoy, the free Summer Nights concerts will include music, the plaza fountain and a clown providing balloon animals and face painting.
“The community has been so supportive of the Friday night concerts that we have been putting on since October 2008,” says Lisa Dempsey, Keller Williams Northeast senior team leader. “We’ve decided to expand on the fun this summer with an event geared toward families with younger children. We hope this will get more people out to the Harbor to enjoy the restaurants and the beautiful waterside location.”
While the temperature neared 90 degrees at the start of the Keller Williams concert last Friday night, the heat didn’t deter an estimated 1,000 people who visited Kings Harbor to hear former “American Idol” finalist Sundance Head. A strong breeze off of Lake Houston provided welcome relief for the audience, but the wind played havoc with Sundance’s acoustic guitar. It broke just before the concert and he had to run home for a back up.
A true professional, Sundance didn’t miss a beat and started the concert right on time. He was joined on the Harbor Plaza by Keith Rowe on guitar and vocals.
I moved to Kingwood in September of 1993 – the month the Lake Houston Family YMCA first opened its doors. Nearly seventeen years later, the YMCA in Kingwood is looking new again. On May 13, I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony marking the facility’s $5 million expansion project and was amazed at the results.
The host of the event was Jenna Dhayer, the YMCA’s executive director. She welcomed the members of the business community and the YMCA board and saying: “So many of you have been involved in this project for so many years. From the bottom of my heart, and my staff’s heart, we really appreciate your support.”
Dhayer recognized Keller Williams Realty Northeast Co-Owner Mark Heinrich for more than 20 years of volunteer efforts for the YMCA. She noted that he has been involved in all three capital campaigns, served on the board for 12 years and was named Volunteer of the Year.
