Black 47 celebrates its 25 years in 2014 and this will be their last year touring; they have played a lot of gigs over the years. Since I moved down to the D.C. area I haven't been able to see one of their shows in some time, so I was thrilled when I saw a show added in Herndon during their final tour.

The band was terrific (as they always are!) and everyone looked to have a good time.
After the concert lead singer/guitarist Larry Kirwan graciously signed autographs and took pictures with fans.
Arrowbrook's concerts take place on Saturday nights. There will be four more shows throughout July scheduled:
July 5: The Back Roads Band (Country)
July 12: The United States Army Blues (Jazz)
July 19: The United States Air Force “max impact”(Light classics/pop music)

The park suggests in the event of inclement weather calling 703-24-SHOW (7469) one hour before the show is scheduled. All shows run from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Black 47 will also be back in the area sometime in October, this time playing in Vienna. Watch Black 47.com for more details.
