Rising local group the Jesse White Band will perform in the Friday Night Concert Series after Chasing Shade tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. in the Pedestrian Mall Weatherdance Fountain Stage.

“I am a big proponent of going out to watch people play at outdoor community events,” lead singer Jesse White said. “This concert series gives us a chance to reach out to audiences of many ages while being in a festival-like atmosphere.”

White said he hopes the band’s first album will aid its success in the near future.

“We recently started recording before we booked a few of these gigs, and we are going to keep recording new stuff as we go,” he said. “When audiences leave our shows, we want to be able to give them a tangible way to listen to our stuff rather than just coming to performances.”

And White said this active fan base provides valuable inspiration for the group.

“I try to tell stories with my songs and talk about the Iowa City culture through my eyes over the years,” White said. “By playing catchy yet concise songs that relate to the community, we hope that we can find things that musically speak to everyone in the audience."

Admission to the performance is free and open to the public.
