The Greenville Municipal Jazz Band to feature Whirledge and Westfall


GREENVILLE — Concerts in the park return this Sunday, August 27, with the Greenville Municipal Jazz Band performing at 7 p.m. at the Marling Band Shell area of the Greenville City Park.

The concert is free and open to the public. Make plans now to attend this wonderful evening of jazz and pop music.

This week the band will feature the pop and jazz vocal stylings of Chelsea Whirledge. She is in her fifth season as a singer with the bands. She is a 2007 graduate of Greenville Senior High School and a 2011 graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Whirledge is currently in her fifth year as the Vocal Music Director for Greenville High School. She is a crowd favorite and her wonderful voice will take center stage Sunday. Chelsea is scheduled to sing the Stevie Wonder Classic “You Are the Sunshine of My Life,” “Sway” as recorded by Michael Buble, “Summertime” and the great jazz classic “When I Fall in Love.”

Also taking a prominent solo role with the jazz band will be the guitar expressions of Bill Westfall. Bill is a 1970 graduate of Greenville High School. He is a prominent musician in our area getting his start playing in garage bands in the 60’s. He is now a lead guitarist in numerous bands that tour throughout the United States and currently leads the local band The Green DeVilles. He will be featured on the guitar classic Sleepwalk.
