Live music will be provided by Duke Tumatoe at 3:15 p.m. and The Kinsey Report at 6 p.m.

Chicago-born Duke Tumatoe combines R&B, rock, blues and funk with humor and sincerity. He was a founding member of the band that would become REO Speedwagon and, in more than four decades of performing, has opened for Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, George Thorogood, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and John Fogerty, among others.

Fogerty produced Tumatoe's critically-acclaimed live album "I Like My Job!" in 1988. His latest album, "I Just Want to Be Rich," was released in 2010. For more information, visit duketumatoe.com.

The Kinsey Report comprises the Kinsey brothers from Gary, Indiana: vocalist/guitarist Donald, drummer/vocalist Ralph, and bassist/vocalist Kenneth. They arrived on the blues scene in 1985 and enjoyed success throughout the '80s and '90s recording and touring, first with their late father, Lester "Big Daddy" Kinsey, as Big Daddy Kinsey and the Kinsey Report.

The brothers have returned to the studio after a 14-year hiatus to record "Standing (I'll Be)," a four-song EP of contemporary and traditional blues, gospel and funk. For more information, visit www.thekinseyreportband.com.
