Jenkins Construction presents Concert by Milkbread
Winner of the 5th Annual Molly Finn Battle of the Bands, Milkbread is a large ensemble jazz band that incorporates a bit of hip hop into its songs. The band was formed by a group of Jazz majors at the University of Rhode Island who wanted to "bring thought provoking, theoretically complex and emotionally moving music to the masses." Members include Ben Shaw, vocalist and tenor sax player, Dylan LaGamma on bass, Dylan Sevey on drums, Brendan Moore on keyboard, Chris Gagnon on alto and tenor sax, Matt Reagan on guitar and Seath Bailey on trumpet. The band has performed at AS220, The Met, The Roosts Cafe, The Wheelhouse Tavern and the 201.
The concert will be held in the nature preserve's Quarry Meadow. Seating is on the grass. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and arrive 15 minutes prior to the performance to ensure a place to park and time to make your way down to the Quarry Meadow. Parking is available in the Rogers High School parking lot. FREE.

More About Ballard Park
Ballard Park is Newport's only nature preserve. Located near Hazard and Wickham roads, near Rogers High School, this space spans nearly 13 acres and has been designated for conservation, education and passive recreation.
The park was a gift to the city in 1990 by Carol C. Ballard. Diverse in wildlife and foliage, Ballard Park is frequently the location for community events. The non-profit Friends of Ballard Park actively works to protect the space.
