Local Family Band to Close Concerts in the Park Series on Aug. 27
Join the Parker Cultural Commission on Sunday, Aug. 27 from 1-3 p.m. for a free concert by local band Joe Fornothin’ (formerly Loose Change) at O’Brien Park in downtown Parker. The concert is free and complimentary ice cream will be provided by the Parker Water and Sanitation District, with additional sponsorship provided by the SCFD.
It’s all in the family with 2005 Douglas County Libraries Teen Battle of the Bands winner Joe Fornothin’. This band is a true family affair, with Tyler Bills on guitar and vocals, Devin Bills on bass and dad Mark Bills on drums and percussion. Both Tyler and Devin attend Ponderosa High School in Parker. Joe Fornothin’ plays a mixture of classic and new rock favorites, mixed with original compositions, and they are currently working on their first full-length CD. The band was formed back in February 2005 in the family basement, which has since been transformed into their official rehearsal studio.
Mark Bills uses the experience gleaned from his college days in his band Lost & Found to help his sons learn what it takes to be successful in the music business these days. “They are realizing that putting everything together, like the logo, T-shirts and booking gigs takes a lot of hard work and time,” says dad.
Concerts in the Park are brought to you by the Parker Cultural Commission and the SCFD.
