June “Concert on the Porch” to feature Hannah Company, Jupiter Stone

The West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville, Tenn., will present the second in its summer concert series "Concert on the Porch" Saturday, June 25, at 7 p.m.. The free concert will feature two bands with Brownsville ties, Hannah Company and Jupiter Stone.

Hannah Company made its musical debut at this year’s Cinco de Mayo Heritage Celebration. Members of the group include Hannah Baynes, Andrew Cooper and Amy and Joe Mallette. Since May, the rock group has enjoyed playing at private parties and other local events.

The members of Jupiter Stone consider themselves “students of music.” Each member brings a different musical style to the group and they mesh to form a modern appeal, bridging generations with their rock and rhythm and blues mix. The band spends its weekends playing in and around Jackson and Memphis and has released a CD, simply titled “Jupiter Stone.” Band members are Josh and Steven Stewart of Brownsville, Andy Kunkel of Atoka and Kenny Napper of Olive Branch, Miss.

According to Josh Stewart, “Our musical foundation is firmly planted in the Blues … we are a multi-genre band whose focus is exploring music rather than exploiting it.” Stewart is also a guitar teacher.

Concert on the Porch is a family-friendly event and both groups promise something for all ages. You are invited to bring your lawn chairs and enjoy this free evening concert. Grilled hot dogs, drinks and popcorn will be available. You may also pack a picnic or visit one of the nearby restaurants.

Concert on the Porch is a free summer concert series featuring guest artists performing from the porch of Blues legend Sleepy John Estes, located on the grounds of the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center. The Center is located behind McDonald’s off of Hwy. 76 South and Interstate 40 at Exit 56.
