Fridays by the Fountain – Hey Annie
The Morris Performing Arts Center presents Fridays by the Fountain on the Jon R. Hunt Plaza, in front of the Morris Theater, each summer between the months of June and August. The concert series traditionally runs every other Friday and features live entertainment from local Blues, Jazz, Rock, Folk, and Country bands. The concerts are free and open to the public and run from 11:45 AM – 1:15 PM. Food vendors are available and they offer a variety of lunchtime favorites including pizza, sandwiches, salads and pasta, or you may choose to bring your own. Tables are set in and around the plaza or bring your own blanket and chair!
Hey Annie leverages the group’s mutual love of Americana and Classic Rock along with their appreciation of great music from any genre. The Alstott Brothers were told at an early age that they had no future in music. Their steadfast refusal to practice frustrated the first guitar teacher enough that he quit the boys.
Quite a bit has changed in the 40 years since the last guitar lesson. Today Kevin and Mark are professionally employed in the Printing Industry and have elevated their love and talent of music enough to share it with the world. Joined by fellow print management guru – Shawn Welch, beverage magnet Chad Meyers and technology services professional Chris Spychalski. Occasionally we’re joined by wind instrument master – Dave Lee of the Elwood Splinters Blues Band. In total, these talented individuals come together to form Hey Annie.
Kevin Alstott – Guitar and Vox

Chad Meyers – Lead Vox
Chris Spychalski – Drums
