ArtsLink’s Summer Coffeehouse Series will kick off on Thursday,
July 11, with a concert by the 40+ Band, with members from all over
the Upper Ohio Valley.
The free concert will begin at 7:00 p.m on the lawn of the Francis
Creative Arts Center at the corner of Maple Avenue and Washington
Street in downtown New Martinsville.
The band “40+” is made up of six experienced musicians that have
been making audiences in the Upper Ohio Valley dance since 2010.
Their repertoire covers genres including Classic Rock, Oldies,
Country Rock, Country, Blues, and
A Cappella. The band members include Rick Taylor on
keyboards, Lino Calvarese on lead guitar and trumpet, Dave Nixon on
rhythm guitar, harmonica, and ukulele, Terry Stuck on rhythm
guitar, Tom Fonner on bass, and John Zumpetta on drums. All members
perform lead and background vocals. Tom and John are natives of New
Martinsville. They’ll be trying something new, an unplugged set.
And they’ll also be doing a crowd favorite, an A Cappella
ArtsLink president, Scarlet Hood, comments, “We’re delighted to

and enjoy great entertainment!” Light refreshments will be served.
