The Kerry Davis Jr. Band mixes country, rockabilly and rock. The Lewisville-based five-piece plays Twilight Tunes today on the Square.

Lewisville band brings countrified rock to Square

A Lewisville indie-rockabilly outfit will serenade the sunset today at Twilight Tunes.

The Kerry Davis Jr. Band deals uptempo alt-country that incorporates some rockabilly flourishes.

The quintet proudly celebrates its love of pedal steel twang in “Oklahoma Girl,” but “Black Water Rolls” drives harder, in spite of the fiddle solos.

The band is anchored by Austin native Kerry Davis, who sings and plays rhythm guitar. University of North Texas-schooled percussionist Lucas Albano mans the drum kit. Aaron Bucklin plays lead guitar. Matt Riley gives the band an extra dose of groove on the upright bass, and well-known Denton musician and DentonRadio.com man Pat York plays harmonica.

Twilight Tunes is from 6:30 to 8 p.m. today on the lawn of the Courthouse on the Square, 110 W. Hickory St.

Attendees are welcome to bring blankets and chairs. Locals and visitors are urged to buy dinner from nearby restaurants — or linger after the music to enjoy desserts and drinks.

Denton Main Street Association presents the concert event that sets the tone for fun downtown every Thursday through July 3. There’ll be a bonus morning concert on the Fourth of July, following the annual parade through downtown Denton.

Up next week at Twilight Tunes: Chris Watson, blues and soul.
