"Twenty on Red" Performing at Citizen’s Lodge Park

Free Thursday Evening Concert in the Park Series
Newly formed band "Twenty on Red" will be performing Thursday night, June 25, at the Citizen’s Lodge Park on Cavern’s Road in Marianna starting at 7 p.m. The band performs mostly blues, R&B, and soul music, and has only been together as a group for a little over eight months; however the musicians in this band have been on the local scene for many years.
Several well known locals including Richard Hinson who plays guitar and his younger brother, Randall Hinson, who plays bass will be on stage. Toray Lien handles the drums and Elton Alford is the band’s keyboardist. Kit Reagan, the youngest member of the group, plays guitar as well. Sonny Dunaway, from Tallahassee, is the band’s saxophonist. Lead singer, Carol Dunaway, is brand new to the music scene. This is the first band she has performed with although this has been a dream of hers for a very long time. "Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to sing with a band." "I have had many years of practice. . . in the car, the shower, and of course, karaoke. Thursday night, I finally get to do it for real." Dunaway says that she feels very fortunate that her first time on stage is with some of the most talented musicians around. "The level of musicianship these guys possess is phenomenal and they make it look effortless."
Dunaway states that this would not have been possible had it not been for the efforts of her husband, Jim Dunaway, the band’s sound engineer. "Jim has provided sound for bands for many years and has worked with every one of these musicians at some point." "It is a real trick getting everyone together for practice because we all have families and full time jobs but Jim handles it like a champ."
Come out and enjoy some sweet music this Thursday at the Citizen’s Lodge Park. Remember to bring your lawn chair and liquid refreshment and most important, it’s free!
