Friday, July 27
A case of pneumonia knocked David Sanborn out of the show on 7 p.m. Friday, July 27, but Craig Chaquico will replace him and the Tower of Power will still perform.
Chaquico played lead guitar and wrote songs with the popular gold- and platinum-selling bands Jefferson Starship and Starship. He has developed a classic rock show that incorporates many of his hits from those bands and his solo career, as well as his interpretations of classic guitar rock covers.

Tower of Power, a ten-piece band known for its up-front horn section, will round out Friday’s show.
Described on its Web site, www.towerofpower.com, as “real deal, 100 proof, aged-to-perfection, ground zero soul,” the band has also been called “tighter than a clenched fist” by “The Hollywood Reporter.”
The group has recorded with performers as varied as Elton John, Rod Stewart, the Eurythmics and Phish, but is known for “formidable concert appearances” that deliver a “sonic blast of brass and funk.,” promoters say.
Reserved seats cost $46; lawn seats are $30, and children 12 and younger get in for $19.
If you really only wanted to see Sanborn, ticket holders can get a refund or credit, or exchange tickets for another show this season, Britt officials said. To receive a refund, exchange or credit, patrons must bring in or mail in their tickets before the concert. Tickets also can be donated back to Britt.
