We're finishing out the "Summer Songteller Series" at the Sugar Creek Branch in New Palestine with a grand finale: local favorite Cool City Band. Hear engaging vocalists backed by an 11-piece band of virtuoso musicians when Cool City delivers an exhilarating musical experience at the library. Since 1999, the band has gained a following throughout the Midwest, performing in Indianapolis, Chicago, Louisville, and Cincinnati.
