The Arts Council of Greater Palatka's coffee house concert series, Saturday Nite Live at the Larimer, will feature the folk rock sensation "The Reasons Why" in July. The show will be this Saturday, July 19th, at the Larimer Arts Center located at 216 Reid Street in Palatka. The doors open at 7 and the music begins at 7:30. The cost is $7 and $5 for students. Coffee and refreshments will be served. "The Reasons Why" are geared up to jam the house, playing music that all ages can appreciate.
        "The Reasons Why" come in three flavors, as a two-piece, a three piece, or a four piece. This month's Saturday Nite Live at the Larimer will offer the 3-piece flavor, harmonizing vocals, two guitars, and a bass. The three-piece includes George Pottorf on guitar and vocals, Chip Kilcourse on guitar and vocals, and Todd Cooney rockin' the bass.
        Pottorf, a retired game warden, met Kilcourse, a practicing physician, back in college in Tallahassee in the late sixties. They became musical partners playing the popular folk rock music of the time. After long fruitful careers outside of the music business, they have reunited and picked up where they left off. Local musician Todd Cooney, a multi-instrumentalist with similar stylistic taste, has joined the Pottorf and Kilcourse to provide the bottom end to the music. The group's influences range from Americana to Electric Folk and include the work of The Byrds, Bob Dylan, and The Greatful Dead. "The Reasons Why" are not in it for the money or fame, but for a profound love of music. This shows in their performance promises an awesome evening of music and a great night out.
        The Arts Council is excited to have such talent grace the stage of the Scarlet Hill Theater at the Larimer Arts Center. Part of the mission of Saturday Nite Live at the Larimer is to offer quality music suitable for all ages at a low cost. The Scarlet Hill Theater offers a dynamic sound quality that is rich and pleasing to the ears, while the atmosphere of the Larimer "Coffee House" setting is laid back, social, and friendly. Luke Taft, Saturday Nite Live Chair, urges those who have not attended a concert at The Larimer Arts Center to come out and see what all the hype is about.
        Saturday Nite Live at the Larimer is supported in part by memberships, the Putnam County Tourist Development Council, the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. For more information call 386-328-8998.
