Next week, the concert will feature Threezers, formerly Geezers, on Thursday, June 23 from 6 to 8 at the pavilion at Memorial Park. Portz has a full schedule this year as well, with lots of shows around southern Illinois and Missouri and his Festus, Mo. Traditional Music Festival on September 24 and 25.
