Conservation Concert: Plan B

The 10th Anniversary Conservation Concert series rolls this month with Plan B returning to the Doc Thomas House Keystone Stage. Its last gig in 2014 rocked “The Doc,” but the stars did not align for their return until this season, so anticipation is high. Welcome back Pinecrest residents Dr. Scott Kenward (guitar and vocals) and Al Roque (drums), South Miamian Alex Leeds (vocals, percussion, guitar), High Piner Al Larcada (bass) and east Kendall-ite Alvaro Gomez (keyboards, guitar, vocals), who will play a repertoire of classic and contemporary Rock & Roll with a dash of the unexpected. The “ConCon” fundraising series holds sway with Plan B. Scott Kenward observes, “There’s something really special about playing outside in a beautiful tropical setting this time of year, and it’s always been a meaningful event for our band and a fun venue. Plus, I grew up in Pinecrest next to the old Parrot Jungle and we had macaws roosting in our yard, so I have a special affection for bird sanctuaries!”  Also on the playbill: Taco Fresh Food Truck, and the donation Bird Bar featuring wines courtesy of Republic National Distributing Co.
