Experience is a word often over used, so we are hesitant to say this group has a lot of experience, even though collectively it has about one hundred and seventy five years of it. So it is just best to say, “experience Q Sonics.” Kevin “Q” Quarandillo on lead guitar and lead vocals, has essentially hand picked an A list of musicians that include: James “Jimmy” Hill on the organ and also piano and lead vocals, John “Johnny on the Spot” Smeltzer on bass, and solidifying the group , the rock solid drumming of Grant Darby . The musicians’ influences are various, but the sum is a pleasing sound ,that is blues based , with heavy influences of rock, soul, and funk . Q sonics is well equipped, literally, to perform at any venue, bar, festival or private engagement.

Fridays by the Fountain

An outdoor lunch-time concert series, Fridays by the Fountain on the Jon R. Hunt Plaza is a summertime tradition in downtown South Bend! Each summer between the months of June and August, the concert series runs every Friday and features live entertainment from local Blues, Jazz, Rock, Folk, and Country bands. The concerts are free and run from 11:45am – 1:15pm.

Food vendors are available and they offer a variety of lunchtime favorites including pizza, sandwiches, salads and smoothies, or you may choose to bring your own! Tables are set in and around the plaza to give concertgoers a space to eat – or bring a blanket and relax on the lawn.
