Despite the threat of unruly weather last Wednesday evening, Local country band The Rio Michaels Trio performed inside the Heritage Gardens Park as part of the Arts, Culture, and Tourism (ACT) Committee’s weekly concert series, Tune up the Parks.

The Windsor-based band is comprised of Rio Michaels, Melanie Postma, and Wade Sharp. The musicians join forces to perform modern and classic tunes for its attentive audience.

The Essex Centre portions of the Tune up the Parks concert series will continue on August 16 with Millenia, a classic rock and pop band, which is scheduled to take to the stage, beneath the wings of the Essex Memorial Spitfire, at 7 p.m.

Tune Up the Parks will take place on Wednesday evenings in Essex Centre and on Monday evenings in Colchester until August 30.
