2024 Kennesaw Concert Series


June 14


Leah Belle Faser 

Georgia native Leah Belle Faser brings an authentic musical style that breaks down the walls of many different music genres, but remains grounded in a sound seasoned with country, pop, rock and folk influences. Her powerful yet soulful voice brings to life the emotional, energizing, and thought provoking lyrics of her original Americana music as well as the songs of favorite artists like Patsy Cline, Linda Ronstadt, Janis Joplin and Brandi Carlile. Believing music and artistic expression to be a true connection among individuals from different backgrounds, Leah strives to build lyrics that are honest and emotional around melodies that move the soul.


September in the Park

September In The Park takes pride in celebrating the music of Earth Wind & Fire with a precision, unlike any other. The band members have honed their skills to perfectly recreate the incredible horn arrangements and vocal harmonies that both groups are known for. From the funky bass lines to the powerful horns and sultry vocals, September In The Park offers a truly unique and unforgettable entertainment experience. One that will leave you speechless and raving for days after the performance.

September 14


Face 2 Face Tribute to Elton John & Billy Joel

U.S.A.’s 1st and longest running tribute to BILLY JOEL & ELTON JOHN. Taking turns at an onstage piano, the dual tribute artists of the Billy Joel/Elton John Face-2-Face Tribute Show conjure the beloved songsters in both sound and image. Backed by some the best and most sought after musicians in the business, Levittown NY native MIKE SANTORO’s fingers flash up and down the keys on “Angry Young Man” before he belts out high-energy Billy Joel classics such as “Movin Out”, “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant” and more.

Following Santoro’s set, of the roughly three-hour show, RONNIE SMITH dons the iconic sunglasses and bedazzled suits of Elton John as he charts his style from the ‘70s to the present. Timeless anthems such as “Tiny Dancer” and the epic treasure “Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding” mixed with more whimsical material such as “Crocodile Rock” and the fictional rock-group narrative “Bennie and the Jets.”

For the 3rd act, both artists hit the stage for the grand finale, trading the spotlight with more of the best of Billy Joel and Elton John. For over a decade, this event is not one to be missed!
